An Australian teenager gave the world a much-needed moment of catharsis on Saturday and owned Australian Senator Fraser Anning over his reaction to the terrible Christchurch, New Zealand mass photography and took a punch in his face for his efforts.
Video of the event, showing the teens sliding up behind Anning while talking to reporters, immediately went viral. The teenager splits an egg on the back of Anning's head, plays it all with the phone, which led Anning to spin around and throw a blow on the baby.
The egg was almost certainly in response to Anning's terrible statement to New Zealand's mosque shootings, killing 49 people on Friday.
After the tragedy, Anning issues a statement directly blaming Muslim immigrants for the attacks and says: "The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand's streets today is the immigration program that allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place."
The grotesque answer, as well as claims he made on Saturday about the killer, is so steep in Islamophobia and racism that a single egg seems too kind. Turning the child several times also seems like a bad answer, but here we are.
So now, the teens, paused to face and everything, quickly become the hero of the latest Internet people. There is even a GoFundMe fundraiser for teens, because of course there is. Aiming to raise $ 2,000 for him to pay any legal fees and "buy more eggs", it had darkened $ 5,000 at 1
And Twitter responded in kind as well.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison condemned Annings comments, tweeting that they "have no place in Australia".
Senator Fraser Anning's remarks that blame the murderous attacks of a violent right-wing extremist terrorist in New Zealand on immigration are disgusting. These views have no place in Australia, let alone the Australian Parliament.

After the attacks, several efforts are underway to support the local Muslim community in Christchurch, including one of the Jewish Federation in Greater Pittsburgh. After two hate-inspired shots in a synagogue in Pittsburgh that killed 11 people, the Muslim community in Pittsburgh supported thousands of dollars.
