On his private Facebook page, Cooper posted an entry that said “Some fun at villa park… #RWC2015” with a 14-second highlights video of some of his plays in Australia’s 65-3 thrashing of Uruguay at Villa Park for the first math of the fixture mundial.
The post also included the music and lyrics from the introduction of Lamar’s hit “King Kunta” saying:
“I got a bone to pick.
“I don’t want you monkey-mouth motherf—–s sittin’ in my throne again
“(Ay, ay, what’s happenin’? K-Dot back in the hood, n—–!)
“I’m mad (he mad!) …”
The Australian Rugby Union has been contacted for comment on the video which by 3.45pm (AEST) had already 7,683 likes, 772 shares and 569 comments.
Cooper’s history with social media has been controversial.
In July, during the Rugby Championship, Cooper apologised for posting an expletive-laden rant on Twitter in the aftermath of criticism that he received for his game in the Wallabies’ 34-9 win over Argentina in Mendoza in which he was yellow-carded.
His post read: “Invite me to you’re next team discussion then ask me how much I give a f— about your team selection? Zero f—s given.”
The post, later understood to be a reaction to a scathing article by New Zealand writer Chris Rattue, was taken down. In his apology on Twitter, Cooper wrote: “Apologies for any offensive language used on my Twitter feed. I appreciate the support.”
In September, 2011, Cooper infamously tweeted his views on the Wallabies set-up then under coach Robbie Deans in which he said a “toxic environment” existed.
