Sacked Wallabies star Israel Folau has had his crowdfunding campaign shut down by GoFundMe, who will refund all money raised to donors.
Folau started a GoFundMe campaign last week where he asked people to donate $3 million to fight Rugby Australia over the termination of his contract.
A spokesperson for GoFundMe said after a period of evaluation, they have ruled that the campaign violated its terms of service.
The company said it does not tolerate the promotion of discrimination or exclusion.
"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.
Folau's $4 million contract was terminated by Rugby Australia last month after he made a homophobic post on his Instagram page.
Rugby Australia chief executive Raelene Castle condemned Folau's public appeal for money at the weekend.
"From our perspective, [GoFundMe] is a place where sick children get support, so it's certainly not a strategy we think is appropriate," Castle said.
Folau said he was asking for support as Rugby Australia would be able to devote "significant resources" to fight him in court.
