Popular electronic musician and YouTuber Nick Bertke has shared a bizarre rant in which he labels gay people "an abomination".

The Perth-based man, who was born in South Africa and goes by the stage name 'Pogo', is best known for sampling animated Disney films and turning them into electro songs. His music video for "Alice in Wonderland" has been viewed over 20 million times on YouTube.

Bertke uploaded the video last month, telling fans why he chose the name 'F***ttron' for his YouTube channel.

“I’ve always had a very thorough dislike of homosexuals,” he says in the video.

He continues: “I’ve never liked a grown man acting like a 12-year-old girl. I’ve always found that to be quite disgusting. And so I thought to myself, how best can I express to the world that gays are just an abomination?”

“To be a bit more P.C. about it, how can I express to the world that I view gays as an abomination?” he added.

He went on to laugh about the Orlando Pulse massacre.

As fans expressed outrage at the video, RuPaul's Drag Race winner Jinkx Monsoon took to social media to slam the musician's hate speech.

"You’re entitled to your willfully ignorant thoughts, but I’d love to know why, without any real provocation, you decided to alienate your majorative fan base with hate speech," she wrote in a tweet.

She continued: "Good luck selling your music without the queer community. It’s 2018. Wake up asshole."

The video was originally posted as 'unlisted' and only surfaced once shared on Reddit by an eagle-eyed follower.

It's not the first time the Australian has expressed his controversial views, having previously expressed an intense disrespect for women.

YouTube apologises for hiding LGBT+ content
The website says it "incorrectly labelled" LGBT+ material as inappropriate.

“I’ve always found that the more I treat a woman like a child, the stronger the relationship, the better the sex, and the more often it happens,” he said in a video uploaded in 2015.

He continued: “Discipline, reprimand, and complete indifference. I think the feminine woman craves the attributes of a firm father in the man she enters a relationship with.”

Bertke's online popularity has previously seen him work for companies including Pixar and The Pokemon Company.
