'Shameful to our game' - Connacht's John Muldoon slams rugby app partly owned by Brian O'Driscoll for Bundee Aki tweet
Connacht captain John Muldoon has slammed a rugby app, partly owned by Brian O'Driscoll, for a post on social media about newly-qualified Ireland player Bundee Aki.
Ultimate Rugby, an app that O'Driscoll has a 45% share in, yesterday shared a picture of Aki with the question: 'On a scale of CJ Stander to Guinness, how Irish is Bundee Aki?' The app also encouraged users to 'tag a mate who also thinks they're Irish'.
Muldoon expressed his anger on Twitter when he wrote: "Iv never in my life regretting spending €10 more than I have signing up to this app- shameful to our game @ultimaterugby."
The post has since been deleted but not before it was heavily criticised online.
App uninstall for me straight away— Second Row (@the2ndRow) October 31, 2017
I unfollowed them after seeing this today.— Mhuirlinne (@Mhuirlinne) October 31, 2017
I uninstalled once they started asking for a subscription...this confirms I made the right decision...#strongeringreen— Thérèse McIntyre (@cailinrua1) November 1, 2017
Shocking stuff— Sam (@sami_sp) November 1, 2017
Aki recently qualified for Ireland under World Rugby's three-year residency rule and is likely to make his debut in this month's clashes with South Africa, Fiji and Argentina.
