PM apologises for social media video

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has deleted a parody video from his social media accounts after discovering the hip-hop song used in the footage contains explicit and sexually charged lyrics.

The 11-second clip from Question Time in the federal parliament on Thursday showed MPs raising their arms to the 1999 track ‘Be Faithful’ by US rapper Fatman Scoop playing.

The suggestive lyrics were not included in the brief video, but the full song contains six uses of the word “f**k.

The clip was posted to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram on Thursday before being taken down.

“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. Apologies,” Mr Morrison tweeted.

Despite the video being deleted from all of Mr Morrison’s accounts, social media users retained the clip and it’s still easily accessible on Twitter.
