Chinese guy sets up candlelight proposal for girl but campus security takes him away before she arrives

This Guangxi guy's sweet gesture for his girlfriend did not go as planned when he was taken away by campus security before she arrived.

The incident happened at Guangxi University in China. 

The guy had painstakingly arranged dozens of candlelights to form a massive display but according to NetEase, he was led away by security before she showed up.

Netizens were less than sympathetic and some theorised that  the guy was trying to snatch "the security guard's girl" or the principal's girlfriend.
