It happened again, this time in Canada. Somehow, I have the feeling that this will keep happening. A few days ago Canadian police livestreamed a press conference on Facebook about a double homicide using a filter that made an officer appear to have whiskers and cat ears.
A spokesman for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police of British Columbia apologized for the “technical difficulties,” and explained that an “automatic setting” on Facebook Live had been switched on. The press conference was re-recorded without the cat filter and the new version was posted to Facebook Friday.
The not so funny part of this otherwise hilarious incident is that the press conference addressed the double homicide of American Chynna Noelle Deese, 24, who was visiting her Australian boyfriend, Lucas Robertson Fowler, 23, in Canada for vacation.
