The former Australian Diamond was furious with the scenario surrounding Blues star Tayla Harris and other folks in the AFLW.
“I am furious,” she told RSN Breakfast Club on Wednesday morning.
“I am so proud of Tay and the way she stood up since there are not a lot of persons who have the ovaries to be in a position to stand up and do anything like that.”
On Tuesday evening, the Seven Network’s AFL division deleted a photo of Harris, who was in complete flight kicking a ball from the 50. The selection to take away the photo came immediately after inappropriate and offensive comments have been produced by social media trolls.
A quantity of comments on the photo have been of a sexual nature and have been disgusting to study but rather of monitoring and removing the comments which have been of this nature or even blocking persons, Seven decided to delete the complete post.
What followed was a host of existing or former athletes, fans from all sporting codes and media rallying behind Harris and spreading the photo far and wide.
The 21-year-old was just performing her job, playing footy.
“Sufficient is sufficient of this trolling,” Layton stated.
“I’m furious. I am so proud of Tay for standing up. Sufficient is sufficient of this trolling. I am not OK (with this). AFL, I am asking you to stand up and not stand for this any longer.”

“At the commence, I believe I was a bit soft on it. I am not okay with persons jumping on and I never care if it is a jetski, automobile, what ever their photo is, get a life.
“Who wants to stand up? Our Tay is standing up but we want Twitter to stand up, block these persons, delete them off, Facebook, delete them off.”
