Canadian Police Accidentally Livestream Double Homicide Press Conference Using Cat Filter

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police accidentally streamed a press conference about a double homicide using a filter that added cat ears and whiskers to a police officer on Friday.

The police later clarified that the press conference, which was about the killing of an American woman and her Australian boyfriend, was accidentally streamed using an automatic Facebook Live setting.

Sgt. Janelle Shoihet rerecorded the press conference without the filter, apologizing for the error. “We are aware and addressing it as it’s an automatic setting. Thank you, we will rectify and issue a video shortly,” the Royal Canadian Mounted Police of British Columbia tweeted during the press conference.
