Australian PM Scott Morrison has apologised for posting a video online after discovering its soundtrack – a famous hip-hop song – contained lyrics that were “just not OK”.
The 11-second video showed government MPs raising their hands in parliament. In the caption, Mr Morrison praised his colleagues as being “on fire today”.
But social media users widely expressed puzzlement over its accompanying song – Be Faithful, by US artist Fatman Scoop.
The song has several explicit lyrics.
The section posted on Mr Morrison’s social media accounts was not explicit: “You got a hundred dollar bill, get your hands up! You got a 50 dollar bill, put your hands up!”
But the post was ridiculed as “bizarre” by people online. Many pointed out that the song, a global hit in 1999, had explicit language and sexual references.
