Maleeha Lodhi, Pakistani's envoy to the United Nations, recently posted a picture on Twitter of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan having a conversation with his British counterpart Boris Johnson.
However, Lodhi erroneously attributed the "foreign minister" title to Johnson, who was previously the UK's top diplomat.
Although Lodhi later took down her tweet, a lot of users by then had already taken a screenshot of it,.
Believe it or not but #Pakistan's permanent representative to UN does not know that Boris Johnson is actually the Prime Minister of UK. Not surprised that she is the same person who cut a sorry figure when she showed pictures of Gaza as those from #Kashmir. pic.twitter.com/w9yiT8IWd4— Snehesh Alex Philip (@sneheshphilip) September 23, 2019

@BorisJohnson you should be careful before you meet these fellow from onwards— Apurv gupta (@Apurvgu68761514) September 23, 2019
The massive troll-fest caused her to apologise for her mistake later in a tweet and cite a typo error behind it.
Sorry typo in previous tweet. Prime Minister Imran Khan Met British PM this morning. pic.twitter.com/Ufp9vz5Ent— Maleeha Lodhi (@LodhiMaleeha) September 23, 2019
It was, however, not the first blooper from Lodhi on social media.
In 2017, she showcased a photograph of a scarred girl at the United Nations and claimed she was a victim of pellet guns in Kashmir. It was later found out to be of a 17-year-old Palestinian girl’s photo taken in Gaza in 2014 by award-winning photographer Heidi Levine.
