Sydney Roosters veteran Brett Morris has taken aim at Dylan Napa's trolls, saying it has got to the point that NRL players will reconsider going out.
Canterbury and Queensland prop Napa has become an easy target in the wake of his infamous sex tapes for which he has been fined 10 per cent of his 2019 salary by the NRL.
News Corp reported that Napa was last week involved in a volatile incident at a pub during which during which a group of men attempted to provoke him by filming him on their phones and verbally taunt him.
Morris described it as a sad indictment of society and said that NRL players were questioning whether they can still socialise like regular citizens.
"It's probably something that's going to happen to him quite a fair bit now," Morris said.
"He's going to get to a point where is it even worth going out for a meal with his mates now or stay home and have a BBQ?
"Because that's the way people are these days and that's a shame."
Morris, a father of three, said at 32 years of age he rarely goes out these days - and if he does he's usually in bed before midnight.
However, he said experiencing harassment was a common occurrence for NRL players and they were often the target of people looking to get a reaction out of them and capture it on film.
"With camera phones these days, anyone can film whatever you're doing - you might not be doing anything wrong," Morris said.
"You take that video out of context and flip it on its head, it can look like you're doing something wrong.
"There are people out there looking to get you. It's the reality, we've seen it with all these videos that are coming out. It's sad, it's a problem with society.
"They think they can make a quick buck out of filming someone on their phone.
"As players, you have to be more aware of your surroundings and the situation that you put yourself in."
