WARNING: Video Contains some graphic content
MANILA — It was a love triangle that ended in a bloody fight.
On Saturday, National Geographic Channel uploaded a video starring three penguins — a couple and a homewrecker.
The video starts when a male penguin arrives home to see his partner with another penguin. This prompts him to challenge the other male to a fight, with lots of pecking and wing-slapping — and blood.
And just like all battles, there is only one winner.
Unfortunately, despite his strong desire to fight for his girl, the female penguin chose the stronger homewrecker.
This video has captured the hearts of millions of viewers. As of this writing, it has already garnered over 11 million views, 218,000 shares, and 139,000 reactions.
Netizens have also created a Twitter account for each of the three penguins. (WARNING: Some Language)

That Penguin love triangle is sad. The husband was a hard worker who took care of his family and had to come home to a disloyal wife smh.
