A lawyer trapped inside a cat filter offers a purrrr-fect, “I’m not a cat” defense as the video goes viral.
Texas lawyer Ron Ponton had the nation in stitches during a virtual court hearing as an assistant tried to turn off the cat filter when he inadvertently deployed a Snap filter. In the video, Ponton is heard saying, “I don’t know how to remove it, I’ve got my assistant here and she’s trying to remove it but uh…I’m prepared to go forward with it. I’m here live. I’m not a cat.” The video clip snapped up a staggering 28 million views and counting.
