WATCH: Australian firefighter tells Prime Minister to "go and get f***ed"

No punches pulled here.

A clip of an Australian firefighter has been shared widely following a news segment that aired on Friday.

The firefighter notices a news camera at the side of the road, as he slows down to say: "Are you from the media? Tell the Prime Minister to go and get fucked from Nelligan".

Take a look here:

This comes after hundreds of fires burned on Saturday, damaging power lines throughout the country and cutting out electricity in thousands of homes.

Since September, fires in Australia have killed at least 23 people, and emergency services have warned that the worst is yet to come.

Another Australian firefighter refused to shake the hand of Prime Minister Scott Morrison during the week.

The hostility of the public towards the Prime Minister comes as a result of a number of things, including an advert he posted on his own Twitter account showing how the government is responding to the crisis, accompanied by what sounds like an upbeat backing track.

He has since announced that 3,000 reserve troops will be deployed to help tackle raging bushfires across the country.

There was also controversy surrounding the fact that Sydney's New Year's firework display went ahead despite calls for cancellation.
