Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Jarryd Hayne, the rugby league player who briefly played for the San Francisco 49ers last season and now plays for the Gold Coast Titans, took part in a presentation about cyberbullying and cybersecurity at a high school in Australia. The demonstration ended abruptly when a bunch of porn showed up on the screen.

The Robina State High students in the audience giggled and gasped as the smut was on display for all. The organizers quickly shut off the projector while Hayne looked helpless:

One might reasonably assume that Hayne was looking at or had looked at porn, since the presentation was supposedly using his device, but Norton, the company behind the event, disputes that. According to a statement given to the Gold Coast Bulletin, the porn came from a device that wasn’t Hayne’s:

“However, (we) can categorically confirm that the inappropriate images were not from Jarryd’s mobile phone,” the statement said.

“The content was traced back to a Samsung device while Jarryd was utilizing an iPhone.

“Currently, there is no evidence to suggest that any of the students from the school were involved in the incident.”


It wasn’t Hayne, and it wasn’t the students. Someone put that porn on the screen, though.
