Pakistan politicians have cat ears & whiskers on Facebook Live as filter turned on
Never a dull day in politics.
Something unexpected recently happened during a live-streaming of a meeting involving Pakistani politicians.
Cat filter turned on during Facebook Live
According to Indian Express, the provincial government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan live-streamed their press briefing on Facebook.
However, the cat filter was accidentally turned on during the live-stream, causing the politicians, including Information Minister Shoukat Yousafzai, to appear with cat ears and whiskers.
The incident lasted a few minutes, apparently.
Screenshots of this were subsequently circulated on Twitter:
