Eagle-eyed viewers spotted more than just a ‘bright future’ in the mayor’s post
Reflections in photos always have the potential to reveal a terrible blunder, and for New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, things definitely went tits-up.
While the process to elect his replacement continues, de Blasio visited Bushwick Pool in Brooklyn on Saturday to celebrate its reopening - sporting a white hat, floral shirt and blue tinted sunglasses.
The mayor had a great time judging by a photo he posted to social media with the caption: “The future of New York City is so bright I gotta wear shades.”
However, eagle-eyed Twitter users soon spotted a mishap hidden within the poolside image...
His “shades” featured the reflection of a buxom woman.
According to the New York Post, the pic was swifly deleted and replaced with a more innocuous version a short while later.
Yet of course, when something is uploaded to the Internet, it’s very hard to take it down, and users soon responded to point out the gaffe:
@NYCMayor bill, why did you delete the first one? it was so pimp! https://t.co/W73en62X7p
