(CNN)Israel Folau, who was sacked by Rugby Australia following a homophobic social media post, is crowdfunding A$3 million (US$2.1 million) to pursue a legal battle against the governing body.
But today the online platform says his campaign breached its terms of service.
The company said it does not tolerate the promotion of discrimination or exclusion. "I have the fight of my life on my hands and every little bit will help", he added.
That's fine, mate. Those people who have their money refunded will no doubt be able to send it direct to the account I am sure Folau will have set up by the end of the day.
In response, Rugby Australia have already said that they will "divert significant resources" to fight me in court.
Folau has now raised over $700,000 from close to 10,000 donors.
'In the days since Mr Folau's campaign launched, more than one million dollars have been donated to hundreds of other campaigns, large and small, across Australia. Sadly, after I uploaded the messages from the Bible, my employers, Rugby Australia and Rugby NSW, tore up my employment contract.
"The case he is going to run is an anti-discrimination case, basically that he has been discriminated against on the basis of his religion, and he's got to establish that the reason he got sacked was because of religion".
For while GoFundMe has clearly had a busy weekend comparing the contours of the Folau appeal with its own charter, before determining it lay outside that charter, that determination was only reached after being overwhelmed by a tide of tweets, Facebook posts and emails from outraged people.

He launched the crowdfunding last week, saying he and wife, Silver Fern Maria, had spent $100,000 of their own money as they fought to keep his rugby career in Australia.
Folau started the GoFundMe campaign last week, asking people to donate $3m to fight Rugby Australia over the termination of his contract.
"Since my contract was terminated, I have been overwhelmed and humbled by the support received from family, friends, fans and the public".
Although Folau has committed no crime with his posts, he is asking for money for legal action to defend a penalty imposed because of his anti-gay social media posts.
In 2015, the site shut down attempts to raise funds to defend a Christian florist in Washington and a baker in OR who both used faith as a justification for refusing to supply their wares to same-sex weddings and faced legal sanctions as a result.
Folau's fundraising efforts has been widely condemned, with many critics pointing out that the Wallabies fullback was one of the best-paid players in the world.
