So, umm, this is awkward. Someone needs to quietly tell the prime minister of Australia the real meaning of “Netflix and chill” or at least point him in the direction of Urban Dictionary.
Malcolm Turnbull was having an innocent old chat with radio station, 97.3FM, on Wednesday when he decided to drop the NSFW bombshell.
“Do you ever Netflix and chill with Lucy?” the host asked, referring to his wife. A very eager Turnbull responded: “Yes, yes we do.”
For those not in the know, “Netflix and chill” is often used as an invitation to come over and have sex. Example: “Wanna come over and Netflix and chill?” The term was first used on Black Twitter before it became a massive meme and ultimately its own catchphrase as Netflix gained popularity in the U.S.
As if it wasn’t bad enough for Mal, quick-thinking Netflix Australia got in on the joke, tweeting a “you do you” message to the PM. Unfortunately for the rest of Australia, the image was already burned into our minds. Send help.
