One 17-year-old Australian boy is becoming an internet sensation after smashing an egg on the head of a senator who blamed the New Zealand shooting on immigration. The video of the egg smashing has gone viral.
The real #eggboy has not been named by police, but he gained international fame after smacking an egg on the head of Senator Fraser Anning. Anning is a far-right senator who publicly claimed that immigration was to blame for Friday’s shooting. These comments have since been denounced by the Prime Minister, but egg boy decided to take matters into his own hands.
After getting smashed by the egg, Anning actually turned around and began to hit the 17-year-old egg boy who was then tackled down by Anning’s supporters until police arrived. Egg boy was arrested and later released by police. His whole ordeal has earned him big attention around the world though.
The hashtag #eggboy is now trending on Twitter in multiple countries, where the 17-year-old is being praised as a hero.
