Machine Gun Kelly, 31, fans have turned the musician into a meme after his engagement to Megan Fox, over his uncanny resemblance to a Foot Locker employee.

The 35-year-old actress made the announcement on Wednesday by sharing a romantic video of their intimate proposal with her Instagram following, citing that it took place on Tuesday, January 11.

Megan looked stunning in a black maxi dress that showed off her toned midriff, with her raven locks left to tumble down her back.

However, fans were distracted by MGK’s choice of wardrobe, comparing his striped black and white shirt to that from the Foot Locker logo and uniform.

One Twitter user racked up over 740,000 likes by sharing a photo of the proposal with Megan with her hands over her mouth in shock with the caption: ‘when the foot locker employee finds an extra pair of the sold out shoes for you in the back’.

Another follower chimed in: ‘Looks like MGK had time to propose to Megan Fox after his shift at Footlocker’.

A third echoed: ‘He proposed and then left to work a shift at Footlocker’.

Another person wrote: ‘MGK with that “when you gotta propose at 12 but your shift at Foot Locker begins at 2” fit on’.

Even Foot Locker themselves hilariously weighed in, sharing the meme and commenting: ‘To be clear, Machine Gun Kelly requested off that day’.

Unbothered by her fiancé’s choice of attire, Megan noted in her post’s lengthy caption that she and the 31-year-old musician ‘drank each other’s blood’ to celebrate the occasion, which took place outside of the Spa Botánico at the Ritz-Carlton Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico.

‘In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree. We asked for magic. We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time,’ began Megan, who first became romantically linked to MGK in May of 2020. 

She continued: ‘Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma.

‘Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him.

‘And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes. 

‘….and then we drank each other’s blood 1.11.22,’ concluded the actress. 

Machine Gun Kelly showed off the Transformers star’s stunning engagement ring which featured a diamond and emerald in honor of their respective birthstones.

‘i know tradition is one ring, but i designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birth stone) and the diamond (my birth stone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love,’ he explained of the custom ring. 

Alexandra Michell Gemologist Prestige Pawnbrokers of Channel 4’s Posh Pawn told MailOnline that the unique ring is likely to retail for up to $340,000.

‘Each pear shape stone appears to be approx. 3cts on two magnetic diamond pave set bands shaped like thorns, signed Stephen Webster. This is a different choice from the traditional engagement ring style and is reminiscent of vintage Toi et Moi rings, the gem expert explained.

‘The style is favoured by other celebs including Emily Ratajkowski but dates back to fashion icon Jackie Kennedy. I would estimate this to retail for up to $340,000, being a Stephen Webster bespoke piece, with an emerald specially sourced for the ring.’

MGK also noted in his caption that he proposed ‘beneath the same branches we fell in love under’ and he had ‘brought her back to ask her to marry me.’

The punk rocker also shared a slow motion video of him and Megan falling backwards onto a bed with red rose petals placed on top of it in the shape of a heart.
