Pakistani politician accidentally wears cat filter during livestream


Some of Pakistan's politicians have been left red-faced after they left a cat-face filter on while live-streaming a press conference.

Shaukat Yousafzai, a regional minister in northwest Pakistan, was broadcasting from his Tehreek-e-Insaf party's official Facebook page Friday, when the setting was accidentally turned on.

The party swiftly removed the gaffe, later attributing it to "human error".

"All necessary actions have been taken to avoid such incidents in future," they said in a statement.

However, the images and clips went viral, with the inevitable online mockery following soon after.
