Kim Jong Un's personal photographer was allegedly fired for damaging his "supreme dignity." His offense? Taking photos of the dictator directly in front of him.
The photographer, a 47-year-old devotee named Ri, accompanied Kim to the US-DPRK summit in Hanoi on March 10th where the incident occured.
The photographer was filming Kim voting at an election district on the day of the Supreme People's Assemly election.
Ri took a photo directly in front of Kim and the flash covered his neck, which is not allowed. The photographer also blocked the crowd's view of Kim for 3 seconds.
Another photographer filmed the scene, which allowed authorities to state Ri, adjusted "the angle so that the camera's flash covered the Dear and Respected Supreme Leader Comrade's neck."
In summation: Ri violated a variety of rules in this three seconds.
He took a photo of Kim within 6 feet (not allowed), took the photo from directly in front of him (also not allowed), and covered his neck with a flash (extremely not allowed).
On top of being fired from his job, Ri was also kicked out of the party as a whole.
