A British baroness recently mistook a Vietnamese man for a child and picked him up for a photo, according to Mashable.
Michelle Mone, the founder of the British lingerie line Ultimo Brand International, had just finished giving a speech to an audience of 3,000 people at an entrepreneur’s conference in Vietnam when the incident happened.
When 22-year-old Nguyen Tan Phat approached the stage and handed her a bouquet of flowers, Mone mistook him for a 6-year-old child.
Mone then pick Nguyen up for a photo!
According to Mashable, a woman in the front row then shouted, “Put him down — I’m his wife!”
That’s when the whole crowd burst into laughter.
Mone later addressed the embarrassing incident on her Twitter account.

A Vietnamese news outlet originally reported that Nguyen is 46 years old, but he clarified in a Facebook post, saying he is, in fact, 22 years old and does not have a wife.
