    Tayla Harris: How 'repulsive' social media comments sparked outrage in Australia - CNN

    (CNN)It is a picture which has been described as showing a "great athlete at her most powerful." Tayla Harris, a star forward for the Australian Football League women's side Carlton is captured in the air having kicked the first goal of the game in a match between her side, the Blues, and Western Bulldogs.

    The picture of the 21-year-old was posted on Australian broadcaster Channel Seven's AFL Facebook page, but what followed has become all too familiar -- "repulsive" comments of a sexual nature posted by trolls which have left the athlete herself saying she felt she had been "sexually abused" on social media.
