  • Senator Fraser Anning was egged by a teenage boy during a press conference in Melbourne

One day after the mass shooting that left 50 people dead at two mosques in New Zealand, a lawmaker in Australia who blamed the attack on Muslim immigration was struck on the head with an egg by a teenager. He then lunged for him again, throwing another punch before the two were separated and a group of adult men tackled the 17-year-old, pinned him to the floor and held him in a chokehold.

"The 69-year-old retaliated and struck the teen twice before he was taken to the ground and restrained by by-standers", Victoria Police said in a statement describing the incident. A 28-year-old Australian-born man is now in police custody.

A senator from Queensland in Australia, Fraser Anning was globally criticised after blaming Christchurch mosque shooting on increasing immigration into New Zealand.

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.

Queensland Senator Fraser Anning drew global condemnation for his efforts to blame the attack that killed 49 Muslim worshippers on immigration.

An online fundraising page is collecting donations to pay for the teen's legal fees and to buy "more eggs".

At the event in Moorabbin, on Saturday, a man can be seen smashing an egg over the senator's head as he was speaking at a press conference.

Diet-related changes in human bite spread new speech sounds
As per some linguistic experts, most humans share identical biological tools and sound-making abilities for spoken languages. Human speech organs do not use all that much energy to begin with - not relative to movement, for instance.

In Australia, ministers and MPs have been quick to slam Anning, discrediting his platform and saying he is not representative of the country's stance on Islam and migration and "should be ashamed of himself".

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the attack was carried out "by an extremist right-wing violent terrorist".

"What a difference an egg makes", one Twitter user wrote.

Opposition leader Bill Shorten voiced his anger at the comments.

"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".

Nihad Awad, Executive Director of The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation's largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, called on President Trump to speak out against the attacks and the white supremacist motive of the terrorists.
