Social media was abuzz with different reasons for the girl’s strange reaction. The majority guessed she was cheating on her real boyfriend and didn’t want to get busted on live television. This theory was quickly busted when one of her family members tweeted this.
Other social media users say the kid next to the guy said something to the girl that made her stop rubbing the guy’s neck. Other users say she was trying to pickpocket the guy in the black sweatshirt, which seems pretty improbable.
The most feasible thing could be the boyfriend was upset by the game’s turn of events. The girl was trying to console him, then she noticed she was the Jumbotron and freaked out. Some people just can’t handle the limelight.
