Cat filter blunder turns conference in to a farce


Posted on Wednesday, 19 June, 2019 | Comment icon 8 comments

The filter made the conference difficult to take seriously. Image Credit: Facebook
A Pakistani minister was left red-faced after a cat filter was accidentally enabled on his Facebook livestream.
Journalist Shaukat Yousafzai - who had previously served as regional health minister as well as an adviser to Pakistan's prime minister, Imran Khan - was giving a briefing to reporters about a serious political matter when the incident happened.

Somehow one of his team members had managed to inadvertently enable the cat filter on the livestream, meaning that the broadcast showed Yousafzai with a pair of cartoon pointy ears superimposed on to his head along with a set of whiskers and a pointy nose.

The humorous blunder ended up going viral and left social media sites awash with feline puns.

Yousafzai later commented on the incident by noting that two officials sitting next to him had also been 'altered' by the cat filter. He blamed 'human error' by one of his team's 'hard-working volunteers.'

Whether the individual responsible is still part of his team however remains unclear.

They say some politicos are reptilians. Is this proof some are also felinoid? (I am joking)
