The Facebook group of former students at Prime Minister Scott Morrison's school has been made private after alumni flooded the forum to speak out against the new leader of the Liberal Party.
The Facebook group of the Old School Old Boys School in Sydney was previously a public forum, until it began to attract heated comments about Morrison's most recent position.
It all started after one member expressed his excitement about having a former classmate named the new prime minister, The Guardian reported.

Others were not so enthusiastic.
One user expressed shame at attending a school that had "generated such intolerance," while others attacked Mr. Morrison's beliefs and values, including his religion and stance against climate change.
"I did not meet him in school, but I've seen this repugnant idiot exercise his powers to the detriment of all of us, the evil … Now I'm very ashamed to have gone to school with him."
"He's definitely not speaking on behalf of SBHS Old Boys, his political actions are a disgrace to humanity and his Christian hypocrisy is mind-boggling – just someone to hold up as a model of what SBHS turned out to be," wrote another.
A member of the group tried to spread the situation, but was quickly abused by other students
While others defended and expressed their pride, the moderators acted quickly to close public access to the page, which has more than 1400 members.
Morrison is the second prime minister who comes from the selective public school, the first being the leader of the Country Earle Page party, which served the nation as leader for 19 days after the sudden death of Joseph Lyons in 1939.
"I'm not a Morrison fan, but he's the first liberal leader since John Howard who did not go to a private school, so maybe he says something about diversity?"
Morrison quickly outlined his vision of Australia after having sworn his post, saying: "Our plan, my plan is an even stronger Australia."
He said he was on the side of all Australians who work for a living. "I'm on your side, that's what matters," he said at his first press conference at the head of the nation.
& # 39; We are on your side because we share common beliefs and values & # 39;
He described the Australian people as "ambitious and ambitious" and also promised to heal divisions in the Liberal Party.
