Hong Kong import and export lawmaker Wong Ting-kwong has embarrassed himself after being snapped viewing sexy pics on his iPhone during an important parliamentary debate. Because, you know, helping decide the entire future of Hong Kong isn’t exciting enough!
Crazily enough, Wong is far from the first high-profile politician to be caught using his Apple product inappropriately.
Last year, politician and former Edward Snowden solicitor Albert Ho was spotted using the Hong Kong finance secretary’s annual budget speech to look up semi-clothed ladies on his iPad.
Not to be outdone, then-67-year-old Italian politician Simeone Di Cagno Abbrescia, a member of Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi’s PDL party, was previously photographed browsing for escorts during a parliamentary session — although he later claimed the pics were pop-up ads which “came up suddenly” while he was working.
More innocently, British politician Nigel Mills once owned up to sneaking a quick game of Candy Crush Saga during a particularly dull parliamentary debate. “There was a bit of the meeting that I wasn’t focusing on and I probably had a game or two,” he claimed — and said that he will “try not to do it in future.”
Maybe this is why Obama isn’t allowed to regularly use Apple products for work?
