Members from Pakistan’s government were accidentally transformed into big-eyed, pink-eared kitties during a meeting recently when someone switched on the cat filter during Facebook Live.
You just need to add a filter that will transform you into adorable animals
The provincial government of Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa was conducting a press conference, held by KP’s Information Minister Shoukat Yousafza, at the time, and to ensure all interested parties could witness the event they decided to stream it live.

However, modern technology got the better of whoever was behind the camera as the cat filter popped up over a couple of the ministers’ faces, with the big whiskers and ears making them look much less professional than the average member of government probably should.

One Facebook user pointed out the error, writing (translated): Remove the filter, the man has been turned into a cat
Soon, snapshots of the error went viral online, leaving people in splits. It led to a series of memes and jokes online.

Later, the party issued a clarification on Twitter regarding the press briefing held by KP’s Information Minister Shoukat Yousafzai, calling it “a human error”. In a statement, PTI Said, “All necessary actions have been taken to avoid such incidents in the future.”
