In the wake of the Christchurch, New Zealand terror attack that killed 49 Muslim souls in two mosques, an Australian senator outraged many after he blamed the attack on Muslim immigration. One teenager took matter into his own hands and opted to crack an egg on the official's head. The senator responded by punching the kid in the face.
After a deranged madman live-streamed the shooting of dozens of peaceful innocents praying in their house of worship, Australian Senator Fraser Anning released a statement via Twitter saying, "The real cause of the bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place."
"Does anyone still dispute the link between Muslim immigration and violence?" Anning added in a later tweet.
This remark rankled many, including Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison. The Prime Minister harshly condemned Anning, saying, "I would normally not want to give this any oxygen, but I want to absolutely and completely denounce the statements made by Senator Anning...In his conflation of this horrendous terrorist attack with issues of immigration, in his attack on Islamic faith specifically — these comments are appalling and they’re ugly and they have no place in Australia, in the Australian Parliament"
Today, while the senator was speaking in Melbourne to a gaggle of reporters a kid pulled out his phone, then pulled out an egg, and cracked the egg right on Anning's head. Anning looked stunned and then walloped the boy right in the jaw.
The video shows the kid held down by those standing near the incident.

It's unknown who the boy is, but he is now trending worldwide on Twitter as "eggboy."
