NSFW Photo Of Australian Rugby Player Peeing Into Mouth Goes Viral, Gets Him Fired

Australia’s controversial DUI-plagued rugby player Todd Carney, was caught peeing into his mouth at a local pub on Saturday.

The photo spread like wildfire across twitter and Facebook and resulted with Carney’s contract with his team the Cronulla Sharks being terminated. The National Rugby League is also considering banning Carney for life.

The NRL released the following statement:

Firstly a club would need to determine they want him to be part of their team. And I would be surprised if any club made that decision considering his past. Then he would need to convince the NRL that he is a fit and proper person to play our game – and we would naturally take into account his past when making that assessment. Given he has been terminated from three clubs it is most unlikely he would be cleared to rejoin a club in the NRL.

In an interview on Nine News an emotional Carney said he has felt “betrayed and lied to” by Cronulla CEO Steve Noyce after he was told he was to have his contract terminated following the incident, according to The Daily Telegraph:

“I just said I wanted an opportunity to talk to the players firstly and then talk to the board and the staff and he said that he’d let me know about that after he sat down. But the boys got a text message ten minutes later saying there was a release about to happen, so, I felt betrayed and lied to there.”

“It’s hard to say if it’s personal or not (between him and Noyce) but he was the CEO at my previous club the Roosters that terminated my contract there, and if there was someone else in control at the club this time I don’t think I would be sacked.”

Stuff.co.nz was able to track down the first-known tweet of Todd Carney’s lewd act, which came at 10.19pm (AEST) on Saturday night.

“No way this is not true,” Twitter user @MarkRaider1 tweeted, along with a picture of the now former Cronulla Sharks player apparently urinating into his own mouth.

The Twitter user – who has 446 followers and is also known as “Mark Miler” – is the first person to have spread the image on Twitter, Fairfax Media believes.
