This is second time in few weeks that Amos is facing on-camera embarrassment. On April 14, he appeared completely naked during a parliamentary video call. A screenshot from the call circulated widely online. The viral screenshot showed Amos standing behind a desk between the Quebec and Canadian flags, his private parts hidden by what appears to be a mobile phone in one hand.
Amos had then apologised and said that his video "accidently" turned on while he was changing dress after jogging. He had even assured that he wouldn't repeat such mistake.
