Egyptian ‘pajamas reporter’ causes a stir on social media

Published: Updated:

An Egyptian reporter who wore pajamas while interviewing Interior Minister General Mohammed Ibrahim has become the laughing stock of the online Arab world.

Social media users have created storyboard “comics” and posted them on Facebook in reaction to the incident and have re-shared the recording of the interview.

The reporter in pajamas stepped in to interview the minister after a reporter who was originally scheduled to conduct the interview failed to show up.

State television sources said it was planned that the camera would show only his hands, but this didn’t happen as he was fully exposed on television with his night suit interviewing the minister.
