PESHAWAR – A politician in northwestern Pakistan was given paws for thought after his press conference was streamed live on Facebook with the “cat filter” turned on, giving him on-screen whiskers and ears.
The online stream of regional minister Shaukat Yousafzai speaking with journalists went viral on Friday (June 14) after a member of his social media team accidentally activated the filter on the social network.
Comments started pouring in as Facebook users noticed pink cat-like ears and whiskers had appeared on the heads of the minister and two accompanying officials.
There’s “a cat in the cabinet” one said. Others were more literal: “Shaukat Yousafzai looks like a cat – Meow meow meow,”.
