Scott O’Halloran, an Australian TikToker, has publicly shamed the Manly Sea Eagles players who refused to wear a pride jersey in a TikTok rant that’s gone viral, calling them out for their decision.
Taking a Stand

Calling Out Homophobia
Scott deemed their actions as “homophobic” and raised his voice against the players’ decision.
A Direct Message to the Players
In the vide, Scott directly addressed the players who refused to wear the pride jersey, making it clear that when these athletes put on their jerseys, they represent not just their religion but also the sport and their team.
A Call for Inclusivity
“There are fans at home that are Black, white, brown, Christian, Muslim, trans, gay, bi, straight.”
He says before asking who they think they are to, “Define the validity of that jersey.”
Respecting Their Employers
He emphasised that it’s the members and sponsors, who invest significant amounts of money, that keep these players employed.
Outdated and Backwards
Scott denounced the players’ views as “outdated, backwards, and homophobic.”
