Scott Morrison deletes tweet of video from parliament set to explicit hip-hop track | Social
The video was synchronised to show MPs raising their hands in response to the lyrics : “You got a hundred dollar bill, get your hands up! You got a fifty dollar bill, get your hands up!”
Song lyrics not featured in the video but well known to its devotees include the question “who fuckin’ tonight”, racially explicit terms: “To all my niggas that they hit it from the back / Who want to have sex with no strings attached”.
The use of the song was derided on social media, with Labor parliamentarians particularly critical of the light-hearted video.
“The full lyrics of the song used in my earlier video from QT today were just not OK. When I found out, I asked the team to take it down,” Morrison tweeted late on Thursday night.
The original social media posts included a personal message from Morrison that “QT was on [fire] today, good work team”.
