The manner in which Australian Rugby have mishandled the Folau fiasco was always going to bite them in the arse - fragile Christians will nearly certainly pledge $3m to his audacious go fund me campaign because this is a culture war now.
Go Fund Me said today the campaign had been removed as it violates their "terms of service" and $700,000 raised will be returned to their donors.
The statement said the company was committed to the fight for equality for LGBTQI+ people and fostering an environment of inclusivity.
"While we welcome GoFundMe's participating in various civil debate, we perform now not tolerate the promotion of discrimination or exclusion".
The fundraising move has sparked a bitter backlash on social media with critics disappointed people were donating to Folau's cause while children with cancer and other worthwhile campaign fundraisers were being ignored.
Said Folau in his GoFundMe message: "I believe that sharing the Bible is an act of love and compassion".
"Our platform exists to help people help others", she said.
Naib Believes Afghanistan Is 'Getting Better' In Cricket
With seven points, India are fourth on the World Cup points table and will expect to move to nine points today. On a pitch that offered a lot to spinners Afghanistan managed to choke down India for a gettable 224 runs.
While the 30-year-old's career in Australia looks likely to be over, regardless of the outcome of his legal battle, he has been thrown a lifeline recently by Tonga, for whom he could potentially represent in the 2023 World Cup.
The fullback was on a four-year contract worth more than A$1 million annually when he was sacked.
Folau as it turns out may also be in direct contravention of GoFundMe's terms and conditions.
Folau has started a GoFundMe page, with a $3 million target, to cover legal costs.
Two months ago, Rugby Australia not only quickly concluded that Folau's posts were damaging to the rugby ethos as a whole, but also against its commercial interests as an enormous mass of people demanded it take action.
Folau's legal team will next Friday begin conciliation with RA and the case will be heard before the Fair Work Commission.
This morning, Bec and Cosi discussed the story on air, as well as the backlash Adelaide Thunderbirds Netball Club has received after their response in support of Folau's wife, netball player Maria Folau. Sadly, after I uploaded the messages from the Bible, my employers, Rugby Australia and Rugby NSW, tore up my employment contract. "I have the fight of my life on my hands and every little bit will help", he added.
On Saturday, Folau took to social media to thank the 9000-plus donors for their money, doubling down on his intention to use the funds despite public outcry.
