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

Although there is no evidence they also used eggs to convey their displeasure, many worldwide leaders had strongly criticized the senator's initial comments soon after news emerged of a heinous attack on two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. The teenager was filming on his phone as he smashed the egg on top of Anning's head.

Senator Anning responded: "Well he's obviously a little on the insane side, but yeah".

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

Anning came under scrutiny on Friday for making a comment on Twitter in response to the attacks in two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, where at least 49 people were shot and killed.

Mr Shorten was also critical of the way Senator Anning's supporters had restrained the teenager following the egging.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Sunday took Connolly's side, telling reporters: "The full force of the law should be applied to Sen".

Although Senator Fraser Anning called the New Zealand mosque shootings an "unfortunate tragedy", he appeared to double down on his earlier statements.

Social media users have been celebrating the courage an unnamed teen hero showed by slapping an egg on a far-right Australian Senator Fraser Anning at a conservative rally in Melbourne on Saturday.

If nothing else, it could make the Chiefs wait for another year before making Hill the highest-paid receiver in the league. Hunt has since signed with the Cleveland Browns, but is suspended for the first eight games of the 2019 season.

The alleged murderer, Australian Brenton Tarrant, is said to have committed the crimes because he saw Muslim immigrants as 'invaders'. That one, who, yesterday issued a statement, blaming the Christchurch attack on lenient immigration policy?

'There's a difference between hate speech and freedom of speech, what we say should never have a negative impact on another person or group of people, ' he added.

Anning swings two punches, with one managing to hit the young man's head.

It is understood the government and Labor party are drafting a censure motion against Senator Anning that will be presented when parliament resumes on April 1.

Furthermore, a petition to have Senator Anning removed from the Australian Parliament has received more than 250,000 signatures.

"We just condemn what he said and I'm absolutely delighted that his comments were condemned from the very top of Government here in Australia, and by the people of Australia", she said.

News.com.au political reporter Sam Clench wrote: "The Australian senator now spewing racist garbage in response to the New Zealand mosque attack got 19 votes at the last election".
