An Irish Gaelic football star has deleted his Twitter account after images of him on a ‘gay-for-pay’ pornographic site were shared across social media.

The video, which is pay-per-view, was uploaded last month to TheCastingRoom.net.

It features straight men undertaking same-sex sexual activity in exchange for money.

The man, given the pseudonym of ‘Fergus’, in the video has anal and oral sex with another man.

A description of the 25-year-old reads: “Big strapping footballer Fergus grew up in a rural area where sexual adventures were limited. Now that he’s living in the big city he wants to try it all!”

A source who worked for the company that produced the porn said to PinkNews.co.uk: “The actors in the films are almost always straight. The penetration is brief and usually consists of repeat shots.”

Dozens of people have sent the player homophobic messages, calling him a “sick fag”.

However, others were more supportive. A user said: “I think the lads making fun are a crowd of idiots – obviously the man is in a bad, bad place!”

Another added: “Fair play … whatever pays the bills.”

The player’s club have expressed support and concern for his welfare.
