An Italian priest broke Facebook’s cardinal rule — in no way depart the filters on.
Paolo Longo, a priest on the Church of San Pietro and San Benedetto di Polla in Salerno province, made the social media sin while streaming a catholic mass on Facebook via the nation’s coronavirus lockdown.
During the just about 50-minute mass, Facebook AR filters activate to make Longo appear to be sporting quite a few animated outfits along with a futuristic helmet and a wizard hat, UPI reported.
“You made us laugh, but without malice only with great affection,” a follower responded in Italian.
The priest moreover laughed off the error, later posting, “Even a laugh is good” in Italian, consistent with UPI.
