Aussie YouTube star Friendlyjordies said he hired the home John Barilaro, the Deputy Premier of NSW, to film an attack video and claimed he had sex in the property’s multiple buildings.
“As you’ve probably gathered, or haven’t because you’re that dumb, I’m filming at your estate,” Shanks said in a part of the video directed at the deputy premier.
“And I want you to be the first to know that I f***ed in both your guest houses.”
Friendlyjordies, whose real name is Jordan Shanks, attacked Barilaro in the 26 minute video posted Monday, and has targeted the Deputy Premier in a number of videos in recent months.
In a video in June, Shanks imitated Barilaro and NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian with an exaggerated Italian accent, attacking both leaders over their handling of the summer bushfire crisis. In the June video Shanks repeatedly used the word “bruz” and swore.
Barilaro criticised the video at the time, calling Shanks’ impersonation of him “racist” and “very offensive”.
In a video shared with his 444,000 followers today, Shanks claimed he’d hired out a large property co-owned by Barilaro, the Dungowan Estate in Oallen, just over 100km south west of Nowra.
Shanks said he was given written permission to film in the house for his “birthday”.
Shanks then filmed himself placing Super Mario Brothers merchandise around the property.
The property, advertised on Airbnb for $1850 per night, features seven bedrooms and three buildings, (the Main House, the Barn, and the Picturesque Boat Shed on the lake), a mineral pool, a half size clay tennis court and 300 acres of bush walks along the Corang River.
In the video Shanks attacked Barilaro’s performance over the Black Summer bushfires, water theft and pork-barrelling, referring to Barilaro as a “ball of grease” and “fat lips”.
Shanks also wore a T-shirt throughout the latter part of the video depicting a cartoon version of Barilaro stomping on a koala, with the words “Super Barilaro bruz”.
The hashtag #SuperBarilaroBruz was trending on Twitter throughout Monday.
“I don’t mind taking the mickey out of myself, but this is actually very offensive. It’s a low attempt at comedy and full of racist undertones,” Mr Barilaro told The Daily Telegraph in June, responding to Shanks’ impersonation of him.
“To imitate both myself and the Premier with such obvious distaste for our backgrounds is unacceptable.
“Our migrant story is actually the Australian success story, one this nation is proud of.”
Barilaro has a Calabrian Italian background. His parents migrated to Australia in the 1960s.
