Footage from the event shows the teen approaching Fraser Anning with his phone held aloft, before cracking the egg, a moment that will live on forever in the annals of wild Aussie political shit. Noting that the Christchurch shooter was 28, one Anning supporter called out that "it's the younger generation taking up the fight".
A teenager is seen breaking an egg on the head of Senator Fraser Anning on Saturday, March 16, 2019. Victoria police said in a statement that an investigation is continuing, including into behavior by Anning and "others".
Mr. Anning was addressing reporters in Melbourne about Friday's rampage when he was unexpectedly egged from behind, creating a loud cracking sound and leaving him covered in yolk.
Following the horrific terrorist attack on a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand on Friday, the vast majority of the world condemned the actions of the 28-year-old Australian shooter. He was wearing a T-shirt with the same year (in Roman numerals) of a famous 1917 incident when Australian Prime Minister Billy Hughes was egged in Queensland while he campaigned for conscription to help the British war effort.
The former Australian prime minister Malcolm Turnbull wrote: "Fraser Anning's comments today are contemptible".More news: Alleged mosque shooter was armed to kill even more people

It is understood the government and Labor party are drafting a censure motion against Senator Anning that will be presented when parliament resumes on April 1. "If you don't like, get out", he said.
"I wonder if there will be as much outrage from the left wing when the next Muslim terrorist attack occurs?"
On Saturday, a GoFundMe page dedicated to "Our Hero EggBoi" was created to buy the teen "more eggs" and pay for his "legal fees".
A change.org petition calling for Anning's expulsion from parliament has amassed about 250,000 signatures.
Anning earned just 19 first-place votes in the 2016 election, but he took over the seat in 2017 after one of the initial winners was kicked out of the Senate for being a British citizen at the time of his election.
Far-right activist Neil Erikson was involved in tackling the teen to the ground, according to The Age.
