Fatman Scoop weighs in on Scott Morrison’s Twitter video

Fatman Scoop weighs in on Scott Morrison’s Twitter video

The 11-second clip from Question Time in parliament showed MPs raising their arms sound-tracked to the 1999 club banger Be Faithful by the U.S. rapper.

There was much chatter online about Morrison's use of a song with explicit lyrics such as "who f--in tonight?". Morrison praised his colleagues for being "on fire today" in the 11-second-video's caption.

Mr Morrison deleted the tweet later on Thursday evening - but not before the video was widely mocked on social media.

'We're just trying to connect honestly with people and some of the narcs will get a bit worked up about this sort of thing'.

"But it's quite clear that that's not a song that's on my playlist and I think I might stick to my regular playlist, that they might pick songs from in the future".

Those lyrics, as you may remember from hearing them on dance floors at nightclubs after 2am, were Fatman Scoop repeatedly encouraging people to "get your hands up".




Fatman Scoop also took a swipe at his own country's President, saying the "bar was very low" for US leaders, and defended the lyrics. / You got a twenty dollar bill, get your hands up! "You gotta ten dollar bill put your hands up".

However, the other lyrics of the song proved contentious.

Since deleting the freakish post, Morrison told his followers, "The full lyrics of the song used in my earlier video from QT today were just not OK".

Fatman Scoop appeared to agree, writing on his Instagram on Friday that the video was "a fun PARTY SONG that has no NEGATIVITY or HARM in it" and was clearly "an attempt to reach out to a younger audience". When I found out, I asked the team to take it down.

It social media into a meltdown, with one user claiming the country was being "run by a 13-year-old".
