QUEEN have wiped Fat Bottomed Girls from their greatest hits – after the beloved track was hit by woke cancel culture warriors.
The 1978 ballad, written by guitarist Brian May and sung by the late Freddie Mercury, was heralded as a young man’s appreciation of fuller-figured ladies.
But lyrics including “Left alone with big fat Fanny, she was such a naughty nanny, big woman, you made a bad boy out of me” appear to have caused the song to be cancelled and cut out of the 80s rock troupe’s discography.
Other contentious phrases include the chorus: “Fat bottomed girls, you make the rockin’ world go round.”
The track vanished from the band’s greatest hits album after Universal Records announced they would be releasing a version of the record on Yoto — an audio platform aimed at young people.
Fat Bottomed Girls was such a success that it appeared fourth on the band’s original 1981 greatest hits album, along with Bohemian Rhapsody, Don’t Stop Me Now and We Will Rock You.
One music insider told the Mail on Sunday: “It is the talk of the music industry, nobody can work out why such a good-natured, fun song can’t be acceptable in today’s society.
“It is woke gone mad.
“Why not appreciate people of all shapes and sizes like society is saying we should, rather than get rid of it?”
