Anchor On Pakistan Show Confuses Apple Inc With Fruit, Gets Trolled On Twitter

Darpan News Desk IANS, 10 Jul, 2019
  • Anchor On Pakistan Show Confuses Apple Inc With Fruit, Gets Trolled On Twitter

Social media users who pounce on even slightest mistake recently got another reason to have a great laugh after a Pakistani anchor confused Apple Inc with the fruit during the live programme.

 

She is being trolled heavily for thinking that her panellist who was talking about Apple Inc - an American multinational technology company - is referring to Apple, the fruit.

 

The matter came into light after a Pakistani journalist Naila Inayat posted a video clip of the show, on Twitter, in which anchor was discussing with a panellist about Pakistani financial conditions.

 

During the discussion, the panellist said, "Alone Apple's business amounts to more than the whole of Pakistan's annual budget."

 

Thinking he is talking about fruit business, she said, "Yes sir, I have heard there are copious varieties of apples and the business is quite big", the startled panellist promptly corrected her saying, "I am talking about the Apple company, not the fruit."

 
 

Tweeple reacted quickly. "News Channel's or Comedy show," said a netizen. "That's why people say an apple a day keeps the doctor away but they don't say psychiatrist away," tweeted another.

 

Check out how others reacted:

 
 
 
 

However, a few defended the anchor. "In the anchor's defence, the way he said Appal it did feel like he's talking about the fruit (Also Appal Sirf Appal Mobile nahin hota hai!)," wrote a Twitter user. "It's the guy who failed to qualify his argument properly! Just apple means fruit!," wrote another.

 

This incident revives the memory of another incident where Dr Masroor Ali Siyal, a senior leader of Pakistan's ruling party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), attacked a senior journalist Imtiaz Khan Faran during a live TV show.

 

Also, it brings back the memory of the incident where the provincial government of Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa live-streamed an entire meeting by accidentally turning on the cat filter. With pink ears and cute whiskers, the ministers conducted the meeting online - leaving people laughing out loud.
