Pakistan’s Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Government Live Streams Facebook Press Conference With Cat Filter On Screengrab from the press conference streamed on Facebook

The provincial government of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region on Friday (14 June) became a butt of online jokes after it streamed its press conference on Facebook while enabling the cat filter.

As reported by journalist Naila Inayat, the social media team knowingly or unknowingly streamed the government’s press conference live with the cat filter enabled.

As a result, a social media user viewing the press conference began asking the page admins to turn off the filter as the politician “had turned into a cat”. He also prayed that god guided the social media handles of the PTI to turn off the filter.

This comes just a day after Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan had goofed up during the SCO meet in Bishkek, when he went and sat down during the opening ceremony while all the other world leaders were required to stand as per protocol to welcome the host head of state.

Khan had stood up briefly during the event when his name was called but then again proceeded to sit down while all other world leaders remained standing.
