Scott Morrison deletes tweet of video from parliament set to explicit hip-hop track | Social

Scott has deleted a video from his media accounts after discovering the accompanying hip-hop song contained explicit and derogatory lyrics.

The 11-second clip from question time showed MPs raising their hands, set to the 1999 track Be Faithful by American rapper Fatman Scoop.

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”.
