A lot has been made of Australian cricket star Shane Warne' apparent solicitation of monies for the online poker website he represents, 888.com.  In fact he caused an international stir according to Pokerati.com.

The tweet that caused the outcry:

It included a link to 888.

Politically powerful Aussie Rev. Tim Costello publicly chastised the cricket superstar, whose followers include some 50,000 kids.
