Australian PM Scott Morrison has apologised for posting a video online after finding a soundtrack – a famous hip-hop strain – contained lyrics that were “just not OK”.
The 11-second video showed supervision MPs lifting their hands in parliament. In a caption, Mr Morrison praised his colleagues as being “on glow today”.
But amicable media users widely voiced astonishment over a concomitant strain – Be Faithful, by US artist Fatman Scoop.
The strain has several pithy lyrics.
The territory posted on Mr Morrison’s amicable 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 a post was ridiculed as “bizarre” by people online. Many forked out that a song, expelled in 1999, had pithy denunciation and passionate references.

I’m now preoccupied by what was going on in a Prime Minister’s bureau during a 5 hours it took them to furnish this video.
Did someone representation this? Were there meetings? We’re other songs considered? Why?
Mainly ‘why’? https://t.co/d5pWOmNXPf

Some domestic observers pronounced a post lifted questions about either Mr Morrison, who became primary apportion 3 weeks ago, and his group were entirely versed for a tip job.
But others discharged such critique as overblown, or saw a fun side.
Just walked past a Prime Minister of Australia’s bureau sensitively singing risqué 90s hip bound lyrics to myself.

The full lyrics of a strain used in my progressing video from QT currently were only not OK. When we found out, we asked a group to take it down. Apologies.
