Scott Morrison has condemned comments from Senator Fraser Anning blaming the Islamic community for the New Zealand mosque shooting, saying they are "appalling and they're ugly and they have no place in Australia". What did Anning say about the Christchurch attack?

A teenager, who appears to be filming the event on his mobile phone, suddenly walks toward Fraser and cracks an egg on the back of his head while continuing to film.

Meanwhile, he has also received more than 30,000 comments of praise from all over the world including the Netherlands, Morocco and Egypt.

In this image made from video, a teenager breaks an egg on the head of Senator Fraser Anning while he holds a press conference, Saturday, March 16, 2019, in Melbourne, New Zealand.

He was late released by the police without any charge.

"Today's shootings in Christchurch highlight the growing fears within our community both in Australia and New Zealand over the increasing Muslim presence".

"I wonder if there will be as much outrage from the left wing when the next Muslim terrorist attack occurs?"

The senator lashed out at the boy punching him in the face before attempting to hit him again as by-standers stepped in to restrain him.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid accused him of fanning the flames of extremism, while Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison called the views "disgusting". Supporters have launched a GoFundMe "Money for EggBoi" page to raise funds for legal fees and "more eggs".

Government Senate leader Mathias Cormann and his Labor counterpart Penny Wong will jointly move the motion to censure Senator Anning "for his inflammatory and divisive comments. which do not reflect the opinions of the Australian Senate or the Australian people". "And he should be, frankly, ashamed of himself".

"Egg Boy takes a punch like a champ then gets choked in a headlock", said one commentator on Twitter. According to the Guardian, he was ousted from his political party, Katter's Australian party, for advocating immigration policies that were too openly racist.

Multiple people were killed in mass shootings at two mosques full of people attending Friday prayers, as New Zealand police warned people to stay indoors as they tried to determine if more than one gunman was involved.
