Teen who smashed egg on Australian senator’s head speaks out for first time
The 17-year-old boy who smashed an egg on an Australian senator’s head has spoken out for the first time since the incident – describing how he was "tackled by 30 bogans".
Queensland senator Fraser Anning was condemned this week for his rant on the Christchurch mosque terror attack, after he claimed the massacre was the result of New Zealand’s immigration policies.
A teenage boy was later filmed breaking an egg on the politician’s head while he spoke to journalists at an event in Melbourne yesterday.
The politician was caught on camera punching the boy twice and grabbing him before the crowd rushes in to break them apart.
The teen has spoken out for the first time since the incident in a video posted on social media.
He says: "Don’t egg politicians. You’ll get tackled by 30 bogans at the same time. I learnt the hard way."
During the struggle the teenager – who has been dubbed "Egg Boy" on social media – is wrestled to the floor, pinned down and put in a headlock by Anning’s supporters.
A petition calling for Anning to be removed from office has more than 225,000 signatures.
After Friday’s terror attack left 50 people and around 50 injured, Anning blamed the massacre on the country’s immigration policies.
He accused New Zealand of letting "Muslim fanatics" into the country.
His remarks were widely condemned, and Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said a motion censuring Anning will be tabled when Parliament resumes.
The Prime Minister said: "These comments are appalling and they’re ugly and they have no place in Australia. He should be, frankly, ashamed of himself."
