In yet another incident of Pakistani anchors being trolled, this time, a news presenter from the Imran Khan-led country confused Tim Cook's Apple Inc with the fruit 'apple'.
In a video clip going viral on social media, the Pakistani TV presenter is seen in a conversation with a panellist, who refers to Apple Inc.
"The Apple's income is larger than Pakistan's budget," the panellist said on TV, to which the news presenter responded, "Yes, I have heard that even one apple is very expensive".
Soon after, the bemused panellist corrected the anchor and said they were referring to the Apple phones and not the fruit.
The video was soon shared on social media after which the Pakistani TV presenter was brutally trolled across the world.

The gu, who has come to studio seems to be sensible but the anchor seems to be super dumb.— Neerav Parmar (@NeeravParmar27) July 6, 2019
They want us to handover Kashmir to them so they can sell all apples produced their and improve Pakistan's economy.

This is not the first time Pakistani journalists and anchors have been trolled. Few days back, the government of Pakistan's Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province live-streamed an official meet with the cat filter.
