Rugby’s Israel Folau Refuses To Take Down Discriminatory Comments

According to CNN, Australia’s rugby union authorities have issued Israel Folau with a code of conduct breach notice over his controversial social media post which said “hell awaits” gay people. In a statement issued Monday, Rugby Australia said the player had “committed a high-level breach of the Professional Players’ Code of Conduct warranting termination of his employment contract.” Last week, Foulau posted an image on Instagram listing “drunks, homosexuals, adulterers, liars, fornicators, thieves, atheists and idolaters,” reading underneath, “Hell awaits you.” The post has not been removed.
