NewsCorp executive Rebekah Brooks, forced to resign from her post after her division’s ‘News of the World’ phone hacking scandal, has been treated to internet fame thanks to readily-available streams of her testimonies in London’s parliament. And since Brooks resigned on a Friday (June 15), the trolls couldn’t help but give her the Rebecca Black treatment.

A clever YouTuber put together a parody of Black’s viral hit ‘Friday,’ with Brooks singing about her shattered reputation (“Friday, Friday / Gotta resign on Friday”). The song also includes jabs at NewsCorp and head honcho┬áRupert Murdoch.

Murdoch gets his turn, too, doing an Aussie accent-tinged rap at 2:30.
