PTV ‘Accidentally’ Trolls Imran Khan With Offensive Typo & People Can’t Stop Commenting on it

Accidentally making a typo can happen to the best of the best, however, some spelling mistakes can stir up situations where things are more forgivable than others.

On Thursday, Prime Minsiter Imran Khan had left for his first official visit to China. The PM of Pakistan became a target of apparently “accidental trolling” and that too at at the hands of a state-run entity!


What happened was that, during the live telecast of his address at the Central Party School (of the Communist Party of China) on PTV, his location was misspelled from Beijing as begging.

The typo reportedly remained onscreen for a good 20 seconds before the spellings were rectified. What happened next was obviously that screenshots started rotating on the internet.

The incident then provoked all kinds of reactions from people on Twitter. Here’s what people had been saying.

The broadcaster has, however, apologized via Twitter saying:

“Today, during a live address of the Prime Minister during his ongoing visit to China, a typographical error took place, which remained on screen for 20 seconds and later removed. This incident is regrettable. Strict action has been initiated under rules against concerned officials”.

There’s also news about two staff members being laid off for being negligent of their work.
