Information minister Shaukat Yousafzai appeared during the Facebook live stream for several minutes on June 13 complete with cat ears before the team were alerted by bemused social media users. Someone had left a cat filter on.
A live stream of a Pakistani politician's press conference didn't quite go to plan.
Yousafzai confirmed the incident and told AFP it happened by accident.
"I wasn't the only one - two officials sitting along me were also hit by the cat filter", he said with a laugh. "Let's not take everything so seriously". Another felt Yousafzai's new look was "kinda cute".
His Tehreek-e-Insaf party quickly removed the video from its Facebook page - but not before the cat was out of the bag, with images soon making their way across the internet.Читайте также: Egypt's ousted president Morsi dies in court
Several journalists shared screenshots of the Facebook live over Twitter which showed the provincial cabinet during the press briefing with the "cat filter" on.
Attributing the goof up to a "human error by one of our hardworking volunteers", the party mentioned that they have taken "necessary action" to ensure such mistakes are not repeated.
Government press conferences are usually a bit of a snooze, but anyone who was tuned in to the Pakistani government's social media feeds on Friday was in for a treat.
The statement said a party disciplinary committee had "probed the matter first-hand", saying the incident was "human error" by a party volunteer.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
