On Christmas Eve, Twitter user @_Mayra Duarte_ posted a video of an 8-year-old boy opening his Christmas presents — and he was less than pleased.
In the video, the boy, apparently Duarte's brother, expected to receive the latest version of a popular WWE video game. Instead, he received the 2015 version.
Reactions on social media were mixed.
Some users supported the boy's reaction.
I love kids like this. https://t.co/vxyqQVdgig— claribel (@clari_babe) December 25, 2015
Others were not so kind.
this is equivalent to a spoiled girl getting makeup for Christmas then realizing its elf makeup https://t.co/MzFfdNfRz1— Pamaj (@efraain_) December 25, 2015
Duarte responded to some of the disapproving tweets.
He's an 8 year old that is the biggest wwe fan https://t.co/tObnLqp7vI— mayra* (@_mayraduarte_) December 25, 2015
As Duarte's video began circling the web, the WWE offices noticed and responded, stating "we might be able to help here."

Of course, there were Twitter users who did not think WWE's off to help was appropriate.
The NBA Store also jumped in on a promotional opportunity.
@_mayraduarte_ We understand the struggle... DM your address and Santa will send you NBA2K16! Merry Christmas from the NBA family:)— NBA Store (@NBASTORE) December 25, 2015
Like WWE, the NBA, too, got called out.
@NBASTORE Do NOT send that woman anything, they did this on purpose and KNEW the kid was going to react like that. BTW it was WWE2K not NBA— Ian Wilz (@wisCOwilz) December 25, 2015
