GoFundMe Shuts Disgraced Folau’s Campaign

Israel Folau’s online campaign to raise money for his legal fight against Rugby Australia has been shut down.

GoFundMe Australia has taken down Folau’s page – which had raised more than $750,000 of a $3 million target – and will issue refunds to all of the more than 7,000 donors.

“After a routine period of evaluation, we have concluded that this campaign violates our terms of service,” the company’s regional manager in Australia Nicola Britton told AAP.

“While we welcome GoFundMes engaging in diverse civil debate, we do not tolerate the promotion of discrimination or exclusion.
