A South Florida car dealership is getting slammed online for parking some of its cars in Florida State University (FSU) garages during Hurricane Irma — and taking spaces away from students.

Brand new cars from Napleton Infiniti filled spots in a covered campus garage during the storm while others searched for open spots on Sunday.

Locals were not impressed.

FSU had opened its garages over the weekend to the public to give Tallahassee residents a place to keep their cars during the record-shattering storm, according to USA Today.

However, the abundance of brand new cars in the garage left students and residents less than satisfied. They blasted the dealership on Yelp and social media. 

One Yelp reviewer, Ryan S., expressed disappointment in the dealership’s “greedy nature.” Maurina D. meanwhile wrote, “Don’t be that guy. Don’t park your cars in student parking during a hurricane.”

In fact comments flooded the dealership’s page.

It is unclear whether the university knew about the dealership’s plans in advance, but they have since responded, tweeting out a message on Sunday night that the vehicles had been removed from the campus.

It is also not clear if all of the dealership vehicles have actually been taken out of the garages. Mashable has reached out to Florida State University and Napleton Infiniti for comment.
