Andy Haden does not represent us

Andy Haden is a "Rugby World Cup Ambassador" for New Zealand. He is also a racist and a misogynist. In his latest outburst, he seems to think that women who "target" sportsmen deserve to be raped.

These are values utterly abhorrent to the vast majority of New Zealanders. He does not represent us, and he should not; he should be stripped of his ambassadorial role and sent back to whatever hateful cave he normally dwells in. But knowing National, they'll probably select him as a candidate instead.
