Cat filter strikes again during press conference

A Canadian police press conference about a mysterious double homicide was marred by 'technical difficulties'.
Last month, Facebook's 'cat filter' turned a Pakastini minister's livestream in to a farce when journalist Shaukat Yousafzai appeared with cat ears and whiskers during the presentation.

Now the same thing has happened again - this time during a livestreamed press conference by police officers in Canada who had been relaying information about a double homicide in British Columbia.

A spokesman for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police later apologized for the incident which has since been blamed on "technical difficulties" relating to Facebook's livestream settings.

The conference ended up being re-recorded without the cat filter enabled.

The murder case being covered was that of American Chynna Noelle Deese and her Australian boyfriend, Lucas Robertson Fowler, who had been on holiday in Canada when they were killed.

Their bodies were found on a remote highway in British Columbia on July 15th.

Canadian police are encouraging anyone with information to come forward.

They need better technology classes, and to get rid of the pranksters.

Why are these 'official' broadcasts/livestreams using Facebook? You'd think there'd be a more professional (read: dumb instragram filter-less) app available.

Apparently more zombies are on facebook than instagram.

Exactly, I totally agree.  What a stupid place to do livestreams.  FB/IG are the last places I'd go to watch livestreams of a serious or newsworthy nature.
