Far-right Australian lawmaker finds himself -- literally -- with egg on his face

Christchurch shooting: Sajid Javid slams Australian Senator Fraser Anning over comments

Video footage of Saturday's altercation clearly shows the unidentified teen cracking the egg on Mr. Anning's head as the senator spoke to reporters following a speaking engagement. Anning's supporters tackled the unidentified boy.

Authorities then arrested the 17-year-old, whose name has not been released, and later released him.

On Friday, at least 49 people were killed following a shooting spree at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. "The incident is being actively investigated by Victoria Police "in its entirety" including the actions of the 69-year-old man and others".

Senator Fraser Anning came under sharp criticism over tweets on Friday including one that said: "Does anyone still dispute the link between Muslim immigration and violence?"

"The remarks by Senator Fraser Anning blaming the murderous attacks by a violent, right-wing, extremist terrorist in New Zealand on immigration are disgusting", Morrison wrote. Stating that he was opposed to "any form of violence", Anning claimed that the atrocity highlighted the "growing fear over an increasing Muslim presence", in both New Zealand and Australia.

Independent Queensland senator William Fraser Anning has hit the headlines yet again after his controversial comments on the real reason behind the New Zealand shootings in two mosques.

In a statement released just hours after the attack, Mr Anning condemned the self-professed fascist but said that "usually (Muslims) are the perpetrators".

"Those views have no place in Australia, let alone the Australian Parliament", Morrison tweeted.

"These comments are appalling and ugly and have no place in Australia and he should be frankly ashamed of himself".

His comments earned swift and blistering condemnation.

"I do wonder if he's made Australians less safe overseas", Shorten said.

The alleged murderer, Australian Brenton Tarrant, is said to have committed the crimes because he saw Muslim immigrants as 'invaders'.

'We call on the Australian government to expel this man who blames victims for their own violent deaths, and uses references to genocide to further his hateful agenda, ' the petition says.
