A Pakistani Politician’s Shaukat Yousafzai was briefing journalist in a live-streamed press conference when accidentally Cat filter setting was switched on by mistake.
Facebook Users watching the live-streamed press conference on the gaffe, but Mr. Yousafzai carried on unaware of his feline features.
He later said it was a “Mistake” that should not be taken “so seriously”. As Mr. Yousafzai spoke, the comic filter superimposed pink ears and whiskers on his face, and that of other officials sitting beside him.
The video, posted to the official Facebook page of the Tehreek-e-insaaf (PTI) party, was deleted minutes after the press conference. The blunder was blamed on “human error” by the party, which runs the Khyber Pakhtunkwala province in north-west Pakistan. Later on the video was removed on social media but unfortunately for Mr. Yousafzai, the cat was already out of the bag.
Mr. Yousafzai also told AFP news agency, ” I wasn’t the only one- two officials sitting along were also hit by the Cat filter”. Screen grabs of the live stream have been shared widely on Social Media, much to the humiliation of Mr. Yousafzai and his colleagues.
