GoFundMe pulls down Israel Folau’s fundraising page

GoFundMe pulls down Israel Folau’s fundraising page, by Jessica Cortis.

Israel Folau’s GoFundMe page has been shut down.

The fundraising platform has pulled Folau’s page, claiming that the former Wallaby’s campaign violated its terms of service.

In a statement, GoFundMe said they would be issuing a full refund to all donors, after Folau raised in excess of $700,000. …

“As a company, we are absolutely committed to the fight for equality for LGBTIQ+ people and fostering an environment of inclusivity. While we welcome GoFundMes engaging in diverse civil debate, we do not tolerate the promotion of discrimination or exclusion.

Except against people who aren’t ideologically aligned or politically useful 🙂 Another example of “we support free speech but…”.

A reader exclaims:

What complete hypocrisy! They’re discriminating and excluding Folau on the basis of his religious beliefs.

If a Muslim had said what Folau said, there’d be a lot of bending-over-backwards and accommodation going on. But Folau is Christian and thus a member of one of the PC Left’s target for destruction.
