Proposals are a big deal, and they're an even bigger deal when they happen in front of billions of people.

After coming second in the women's 3m diving in Rio, He Zi watched her boyfriend get down on one knee before popping that all-important question, and not everyone is impressed by his timing.

In a move that has sparked major discussion on Reddit, diver, Qin Kai, got down on one knee shortly after his girlfriend accepted her silver medal, and many internet users were quick to question Qin Kai's timing.

"Am I the only one who would be a bit upset?" wrote one Reddit user. "I love you babe, but please don't steal the moment of Olympic glory I've busted my ass to achieve."
 


"Unpopular opinion: I don't think it's nice to put a lady on the spot like that, it feels like your forcing her to say "Yes"," added another.

Echoing their fellow Reddit users, another member of the public blasted He Zi's new fiancé for choosing that moment to mark a major relationship milestone.

"Honestly f*ck people like this. Today's not about you. Don't pressure them with a big stage," they slammed.

Thankfully for Qin Kai, not everyone felt that he had made an almighty faux pas and acknowledged how nervous he must have felt.

"I like looking at the boyfriend. You can see him swallow and inhale because of the enormity of the moment," wrote one while another added: "His reaction is so freaking cute. I love all of this."

Do you think he stole her special moment?
 

A day she will never forget
