The Quebec Health Ministry’s official Twitter account got some extra traffic Thursday morning after a link to “inappropriate content” was shared with followers.
“Due to a situation beyond our control, a link with inappropriate content was posted on our Twitter account. We are looking for the causes,” reads a tweet from the ministry.
The link was intended to bring users to the government website’s COVID-19 portal but instead sent readers to a PornHub fetish video.
The internet had a field day over the error, with hundreds poking fun at the ministry’s mistake on Twitter.
Richard Bellavance tweeted: “You might think you’re having a bad day, but someone at Santé Québec is having a worse one.”
And Twitter user Liam Allen Miller wrote: “My deepest sympathies go out to the Santé Québec employee who accidentally tweeted out foot fetish porn from the official government Twitter page along with the daily Covid-19 update.” The tweet has since been deleted.
