Following the horrific terror attack at a mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand, that left 49 people dead, Australian senator, Fraser Anning, sparked outrage after blaming 'Muslim immigration' for the massacre.

The senator for Queensland claims that the attack highlighted 'the growing fear within our community, both in Australia and New Zealand, of the increasing Muslim presence'.

Anning's comments were met with widespread condemnation on Friday and things got even worse for the controversial politician after he was left with literal egg on his face.

While speaking to TV cameras, a 17-year-old teenager, without fear or hesitation, cracked a raw egg on Anning's head and recorded the entire incident on his phone.

A shocked Anning responded by twice punching the boy in the face before the culprit was eventually tackled to the ground and restrained. The teenager has since been arrested and released without charge pending an investigation.

Footage of the prank and the subsequent scuffle have gone viral and, while we can't condone these sort of actions, people can't help but enjoy the Anning's comeuppance and are hailing the teenager, who has now been dubbed as 'Egg Boy,' a hero.

Elsewhere, Anning and his cohorts have been criticised for the way that they handled the situation by assaulting, physically restraining the boy with a choke hold and insulting him.

Warning: Some may find this footage distressing.

Regardless of what happens next, Anning, who 24 hours ago was a fairly anonymous politician with contemptuous views, is now being publicly ridiculed for his words, so we can sleep soundly knowing that he is having a great time.
