Aussie Senator Fraser Anning Hits Teen Who Egged Him

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".

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews today slammed Senator Anning for his "ignorant" views, following his widely condemned statements about Friday's deadly attack.

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

A shocked Senator Anning turned towards the teenager and slapped him in the face. Victoria Police said they arrested the boy but later released him without charge.

Lawmakers within Australia's conservative government had been quarreling in recent weeks over whether the firebrand commentator should be allowed to tour Australia this year.

"I would normally not want to give this any oxygen, but I want to absolutely and completely denounce the statements made by Senator Anning...on this horrendous terrorist attack, with issues of immigration, in his attack on Islamic faith specifically", Mr Morrison said.

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.

He also posted a statement on Twitter in which he tried to draw a link between Muslim immigration and violence.

He says those views have no place in Australia, let alone the Australian Parliament.

Australia's prime minister, Scott Morrison, tweeted that Anning's remarks on immigration were "disgusting".

American actress Chelsea Peretti tweeted: "why did egg boy vid make me cry".

A fundraising page was quickly set up to buy "more eggs" and collect donations to cover his legal fees.

"Rather than demonstrating empathy and compassion, he has chosen instead to vent his racist prejudice and hatred against Islam and Muslims by blaming the victims instead of the criminal perpetrators", he said in a statement today.

Egyptian social media users on both Twitter and Facebook have praised Egg Boy for his "bravery" and his stance against racism, with many calling him a hero who deserves being awarded for his actions.
