Israel Folau’s attempt to crowdfund for his legal action against Rugby Australia has been shut down by GoFundMe.

A spokesperson for GoFundMe said after a “period of evaluation”, the site had ruled Folau’s campaign violated its terms of service.

“We are absolutely committed to the fight for equality for LGBTIQ+ people and fostering an environment of inclusivity,” GoFundMe’s Australian regional director Nicola Britton said.

The company said it would not tolerate the promotion of discrimination or exclusion.

“Our platform exists to help people help others,” Ms Britton added.

“Australians have shown themselves to be among the most kind and generous people in the world.
