A social media commentator has exposed a deleted tweet from rugby league star Robbie Farah, sparking calls for an explanation from the anti-trolling campaigner.
Text100 digital strategist Karalee Evans found a Tweet from September last year, when Farah suggested Prime Minister Julia Gillard should get “a noose” for her birthday.
The deleted Tweet, in response to a question from rugby league mate Mark Geyer, read: “‘@markMgeyer: What would you buy the PM for her birthday? It’s her 50th today….’ a noose…”.
The next morning he dismissed criticism and said he was not talking about Ms Gillard committing suicide.
