RCMP in BC have issued a response in relation to an unfortunate technical glitch during a press conference on Friday afternoon.
RCMP Sgt. Janelle Shoihet was in the middle of providing an update on the double homicide earlier in the week, when a cat filter appeared on the screen.

In a Twitter response, the RCMP blamed the issue on an “automatic setting.”
They added that they would rectify, and reissue the video.
Yes we are aware and addressing it as it’s an automatic setting. Thank you, we will rectify and issue a video shortly.
