Since the incident though, the music world has been quick to show their support for the teenager, with artists, festivals, and promoters offering numerous benefits to the young man who has been dubbed Egg Boy.

Senator Anning's office has been approached for comment.

A joint media release was made from the government and the Labor party on Sunday announcing they will move a motion that "censures Senator Anning for his inflammatory and divisive comments seeking to attribute blame to victims of a horrific crime".

William has been hailed a national hero online, amassing close to 500,000 followers on Instagram.

The Aussie politician had tried to claim the deadly attacks on two Christchurch mosques that left 49 people dead and about 50 injured on Friday were a result of New Zealand's immigration policies.

Television cameras caught a 17-year-old boy break the egg on Fraser Anning's head whilst filming it on his phone.

The young boy was slapped on his face by the shocked senator, in response before a fight breaks out. He lashed out at the teen a second time as the pair were separated.

Teen who threw an egg at Fraser Anning tackled to the ground by the controversial senator's supporters.

"Don't you have any f***ing remorse?", Bidiri is heard saying in the video. He was released without charge released pending further inquiries.

One man can be seen grabbing the teen around the throat and placing him in a choke-hold.


"Egg Boy takes a punch like a champ then gets choked in a headlock", said one commentator on Twitter.

It's unclear if the senator will face any police action over his reaction. Police are conducting an investigation into the scuffle.

"The incident is being actively investigated by Victoria Police in its entirety", the statement read.

A GoFundMe set up to raise money for the teen's "legal fees" and "more eggs" had raised over $30,000 in a day. By Saturday evening $17,000 had been donated (the goal was $2,000). What did Anning say about the Christchurch attack?

Asked by a journalist what she thought of Anning's comments, she replied simply: "They're a disgrace".

Far-right activist Neil Erikson, who was involved in tackling Connolly, shouted for reporters to be removed from the area.

Footage of the altercation quickly went viral, and the teenager was dubbed "egg boy" by social media users.

Hilltop Hoods have also shown their appreciation.

The offensive comments have been widely condemned, including by the Australian prime minister, Scott Morrison, and by Quinlan. This guy is an Australian senator? "I hope it's not too painful".

He also called in question the outrage surrounding the attack in the New Zealand mosque.
