A rugby app partly-owned by Irish rugby legend Brian O'Driscoll has been forced to delete a social media post about Ireland's newly-qualified centre Bundee Aki.
Brian O'Driscoll's rugby app forced to delete Bundee Aki post after online outrage
O’Driscoll owns 45% of ‘Ultimate Rugby’, an app that provides fans with news, fixtures and information on international rugby teams with the remainder owned by technology entrepreneur, Ray Nolan - writes independent.ie.
In the post, they asked: 'On a scale of CJ Stander to Guinness, how Irish is Bundee Aki'
The questions was posed over an image of the New Zealand-born Connacht star with the message: 'Tag a mate who also thinks they're Irish'.
The post has since been deleted but not before it was heavily criticised online.
Aki recently qualified for Ireland under World Rugby's three-year residency rule and is likely to make his debut in this month's clashes with South Africa, Fiji and Argentina.
