Scott Morrison Apologises For Posting Fatman Scoop Song On Twitter

Scott Morrison Is Heaps Sorry For That Incredibly Weird Fatman Scoop Tweet 'Just not OK': Scott Morrison's unusual hip hop Twitter blunder
Charles Bowen | 14 September, 2018, 23:08

However, it didn't take long before some people started pointing out other less innocent lyrics from that song, including explicit references and swearing.

Mr Morrison deleted the tweet later on Thursday evening - but not before the video was widely mocked on social media. The video also drew scrutiny for the seeming insult of incredibly well-paid pollies being soundtracked by the credo "If you got a hundred dollar bill, put your hands up".

The tweet was deleted about four hours after it was posted, and Mr Morrison apologised. / You got a fifty dollar bill, get your hands up! When I found out, I asked the team to take it down.

The song, Be Faithful, was a huge hit in the early 2000s and reached number five in the ARIA charts in Australia after its release in 1999.

While it is unlikely Morrison would have played any role in choosing the soundtrack or even considering what objective the clip might have served, the freakish post will raise questions about his staffing arrangements and if his team is equipped for the job of working in the Prime Minister's office following his sudden promotion to the job.

"It's quite clear that that's not a song that's on my play list", Mr Morrison said, suggesting he might choose a Tina Arena track next time.

"Well s-t...looks like we will have a new PM in the morning", one person responded.

"But it was a bit of fun".

What people are seriously vibing to that song in 2018 remains to be answered, but the fact Morrison has openly admitted he wants to sell his personality to the Australian public is genuinely interesting.
