Sonny Bill Williams has posted on Instagram asking why a picture of him and fellow Muslim All Black Ofa Tu'ungafasi in prayer on the field prior to Saturday's win over the Springboks was taken down.
In the post, Williams posted the original photo as well as a screengrab of the message from Instagram saying the post had been removed because “a third party reported that the content infringes or otherwise violates their rights”.
He also questioned those Instagram users who had reported the photo.
“Surely a simple picture of someone expressing their gratitude for what they’ve been blessed with is ok?”
According to Stuff, Facebook - who own Instagram - explained to them the image was removed "due to a claim of intellectual property infringement."
