Australian Senator egged after his comments on New Zealand shooting

The moment Fraser Anning was hit with the egg

The moment Fraser Anning was hit with the egg

Social media users have been celebrating the courage an unnamed teen hero showed by slapping an egg on a far-right Australian Senator Fraser Anning at a conservative rally in Melbourne on Saturday. Then he calmly lifts his right hand and cracks a raw egg on the back of Anning's closely shaved head.

The teenager was tackled to the ground and held in a headlock by four supporters of Senator Anning, including convicted criminal Neil Erickson.

It's unclear if the senator will face any police action over his reaction.

Fraser Anning, independent Senator for Queensland, tweeted: "Does anyone still dispute the link between Muslim immigration and violence?".

The ugly scenes unfolded at a public event in Moorabbin on Saturday afternoon and comes after the Senator released a statement blaming the Christchurch massacre on immigration.

Meanwhile, people are taking this opportunity to nominate precious Egg Boy for Australian Of The Year - that seems like a reasonable call to be honest, so here's where you can go if you would also like to do that. "Police at the front of the venue were notified, attended and arrested the 17-year-old shortly thereafter".

Scott Morrison, the Australian prime minister, said he expects Parliament to pass a resulting censuring Mr. Anning for the statement once the next legislative session convenes.

According to The Australian, "New Zealand's High Commissioner to Australia, Annette King, also rejected Senator Anning's remarks and declared it was up to Australian voters as to whether he remained in federal parliament after the May election".

"You don't get your message out by coming up and crunching an egg on someone - it's just stupid", he said.

"I think the full force of the law should be applied to Senator Anning", Mr Morrison said.

"The senator in question, I do not think operates by the beat of the same drum as the rest of us", he said.

Senator Anning responded: "Well he's obviously a little on the insane side, but yeah".

A fundraising page has already been set up to raise cash to cover the teen's legal bills, should he accrue any, as well as cover the cost of "more eggs".

A change.org petition calling for Anning's removal from Parliament has received over 450,000 signatures since Friday.

As many as 49 people lost their lives and 48 were injured on Friday (March 15) in the mass shootings at two New Zealand mosques.
