Australian senator punches 17-year-old after being egged

His comments have been widely condemned as Islamophobic and were likely the cause of the protest from a 17-year-old, who snuck into an interview he was conducting about immigration to hit him over the head with an egg.

The at times, controversial, Senator, turned around and slapped the man.

The Victoria Police did not identify the young man but said they released him after taking his details. He can be seen holding up his phone, seemingly to record the incident, before breaking a raw egg on the back of Anning's head. Police have arrested an Australian citizen in relation to the massacre.

"I am utterly opposed to any form of violence within our community, and I totally condemn the actions of the gunman", Anning said in his statement that was released after the mosque attacks.

A rabidly anti-Muslim politician in Australia is facing widespread denunciation after immediately blaming a Friday mass shooting in New Zealand - which killed more than 40 people at two local mosques - on the Muslim faith and Muslim immigration.

Australian Senator Fraser Anning blamed New Zealand's immigration policy for Friday's terror attacks on two mosques that left at least 49 dead and dozens injured.

On Twitter, Anning asked whether anyone "still disputes the link between Muslim immigration and violence".

Australia's PM said that "those views have no place in Australia, let alone the Australian parliament".

A fundraising page has already been set up to collect donations to cover the teenager's legal fees and to buy "more eggs", ABC reported.

In a video posted to Twitter overnight, the young man is seen walking down the street saying: "Don't egg politicians, you get tackled by thirty bogans at the same time, I learnt the hard way".

Meanwhile, critics of Australia's far-right platforms have suggested that Anning's comments are motivated by a desire to secure a senatorial election in May.

The internet has a new hero - egg boy.

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.

The senator, Fraser Anning of Queensland, had been speaking to reporters Saturday in Melbourne at a right-wing rally.

"While families in Christchurch mourn for loved ones they've lost, an obscure Australian Senator saw this act of terrorism and tragedy as an opportunity to blame the murder victims", Mr Shorten said.

He then allegedly returned to the scene of the crime hours later to grieve with the older man's family. The attack came three months after Zottola's son, Salvatore Zottola, was also shot, but survived.
