    Homophobic comments are hurting the younger generation

    Homophobic comments are hurting the younger generation


    It comes amid allegations three Crusaders rugby players exhibited homophobic behaviour following their recent match in Cape Town.

    Last week, Wallabies player Israel Folau has his contract terminated after he came under fire for posts he made on social media.

    Openly gay international referee Nigel Owens says the impact these comments have can't be underestimated.

    He says for teenagers struggling with their own sexuality, reading these types of things, is a really difficult situation to be in.
