Pakistani Politicians Accidentally Leave Cat Filter On During Facebook Live Stream

Share

A politician in Pakistan was given paws for thought after his press conference was streamed live on Facebook with the "cat filter" turned on - giving him on-screen whiskers and ears.

Shaukat Yousafzai is a regional minister in Pakistan, but that's not what he's known for.

"Yesterday whilst covering a Press briefing held by KP's information minister Shaukat Yousafzai, a "cat filter" was witnessed by the viewers which was removed within few minutes", the party statement stated.

It didn't take long for commentators to pounce on the error, with plenty of pictures appearing online before the original video was hastily deleted, and the inevitable online mockery followed.

The Kitty Conference was captured mostly in the form of still images and screenshots that were shared on social media after the fact, along with some raw screen recordings.

Pakistani politicians have had a not so purr-fect foray into the world of Facebook Live.

Johnson said he did not want a no-deal Brexit but he ruled out a further extension beyond the current October 31 deadline. Mr Johnson was the clear victor in the first ballot with 114 votes - 71 votes ahead of his nearest rival, Jeremy Hunt.

Yousafzai confirmed what happened to AFP, saying it was an accident.

Yousafzai seemed to take the matter a little less seriously.

Unfortunately, one spoilsport let the cat out of the bag, replying "Filter hata lo".

In a report by the Russian state TV channel RT, local government officials of Khyber Pakhtunkhwan (KP) tackled "important decisions of the provincial cabinet" during the said press conference last Friday. "All necessary actions have been taken to avoid such incidents in future".

The party's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Facebook page operator accidentally turned on the cat filter while streaming the video.
