'I'm exhausted by the whole thing': Peter FitzSimons slams Israel Folau for asking for money to pay for his legal defence

'I'm exhausted by the whole thing': Peter FitzSimons slams Israel Folau for asking for money to pay for his legal defence Peter FitzSimons has blasted sacked Wallabies star Israel Folau for crowdfunding money to pay his legal fees in his ongoing battle with Rugby Australia. The former rugby champion said Folau lost the support of Australia when he started a GoFundMe page to raise $3million. Mr FitzSimons said the popular crowdfunding website was for worthy causes such as expensive medical bills. As of this morning, Folau's campaign had reached over $600,000, Liz Ellis said on Nine's Sports Sunday.

Israel Folau’s new fundraising campaign has soared past $600,000 as donors throw in more than $1000 a minute, which could see the sacked Wallabies star rake in far more cash than he did on his now deleted GoFundMe page.

As of just after midday on Tuesday, more than $600,000 had been donated in the space of 12 hours to a relaunched website via the Australian Christian Lobby.

Folau, a multi-millionaire, was set to make roughly $765,000 through his GoFundMe website – an exercise labelled by former Wallaby teammate Drew Mitchell as “greedy” – before the American company cancelled the page and issued refunds because his cause violated their terms and conditions.

Throughout the morning when Australians began waking up, the donations have been coming in at more than $1000 a minute.

The ACL kick-started the fund with a $100,000 donation of their own.

“Recently, the online fundraising platform GoFundMe shut down Israel Folau’s legal defence fund and turned away hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations," ACL managing director Martyn Iles said on the website.

"On behalf of the Australian Christian Lobby, I have spoken to Israel Folau to let him know that ACL will be donating $100,000 to his legal defence, because it’s right and it sets an important legal precedent.

"I have also offered to host his online appeal for funds here on our website and he has accepted our offer.

"All gifts you give on this web page will be deposited into a trust account to pay for Israel Folau’s legal case.

"So, please give generously today to help Israel Folau stand for your religious freedom."
