The Australian rugby player who was sacked by Rugby Australia last month after claiming that “hell awaits’ gay people has had his fundraising page shut down for promoting the exclusion of LGBT people.
The website GoFundMe explained its decision by saying that Israel Folau’s page violated its rules.
Folau, a Christian, had set up the page asking for public donations to help him with a legal fight against Rugby Australia, who he claims committed an act of religious discrimination in terminating his contract.
According to Australian media, Folau had received in excess of £400,000 since setting up the page last week. All donations will be refunded.
