A Canadian Liberal MP was caught zoom on Wednesday wearing absolutely nothing, during a virtual House of Commons.
William Amos was in a video conference call with other members of Parliament when he appeared naked on the screen.
Anyone recognize this MP wandering around in the buff in their office while taking part in the hybrid Parliament? Obviously, given the flag, they are from Quebec. Wonder what kind of mobile phone he uses? #cdnpoli pic.twitter.com/HWOeR9ZJBV— Brian Lilley (@brianlilley) April 14, 2021
In a short statement following the incident, Amos asserted that is was “an unfortunate error,” and that “my video was accidentally turned on as I was changing into my work clothes after going for a jog.”
This isn’t the first time since the world moved to constant Zoom meetings that somebody has appeared in a compromising position over a virtual call.
Recall in 2020, A businessman accidentally left his camera on while taking a shower during a Zoom conference call with Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro.
In reacting to the recent incident, Canadian Bloc Québécois party whip Claude DeBellefeuille said “It may be necessary to remind the members, especially the male ones, that a tie and jacket are obligatory, but so are a shirt, boxer shorts or pants. We have seen that the member is in great physical shape, but I think members should be reminded to be careful and control the camera well.”
