Tayla Harris targeted by online trolls over AFLW photo

Article image for Tayla Harris targeted by online trolls over AFLW photo

Tayla Harris has been attacked by online trolls over a photo taken of her loading up a drop punt.

The photo of the 21-year-old Carlton player was taken during their final round match against the Western Bulldogs in the AFLW.

Channel 7’s AFL social media department posted the photo online before removing it due to a number of offensive and inappropriate comments.

The decision caused outrage, with several sporting stars rallying behind Ms Harris.

She tweeted the photo, stating it was simply “a pic of me at work”.

Former host of the AFL Footy Show Rebecca Maddern tells Ben Fordham the trolls have only strengthened the image of women in sport.

“Isn’t it great that this image now is much bigger than ALFW?

“This is about women in sport, this is about displaying an image that is so strong and powerful.”
