A tradition has taunted Aborigines with a racist Tik Tok on the 250th anniversary of Captain Cook’s arrival in Australia.
The young man posted the video of him pretending to sniff petrol from a jerry can on Tuesday night on the popular social media site.
Dressed in a hi-vis work shirt, he pretended to use the jerry can as a barbell weight, but he smelled the can every time he lifted it.

He concluded the shocking act with the text: ‘Here is a good home training while you are in iso for aborigines’.
The man quickly deleted the video from Tik Tok, but was soon posted to another Facebook user.
Facebook quickly removed it from their platform, but not before hundreds slammed the footage.
Others called the video “racist” and “disgusting”, calling for him to be fired by his employer, whose logo was on his orange work shirt.
After the video was removed from Tik Tok, others shared it on Facebook, wherever it was removed – but not before hundreds labeled the footage as “ racist ” and “ absolutely disgusting. ”
“This is a bad attempt at a joke, he finds it really funny,” wrote one commenter.
“Doing something like this while in corporate clothing can have consequences, also a bad image towards the employer,” said another woman.
The only video left on the man’s Tik Tok page shows him a bubbler – a disgusting act made famous by former NRL star Todd Carney.
