Australian right-winger Fraser Anning issued a stunningly Islamophobic statement on the very day 1 in every 500 Muslims in New Zealand were murdered in two mosques in New Zealand by an Australian — a statement praised by James Woods, by the way — so it was rather satisfying to watch him get egged by a teenager as he bloviated at a presser ...
A protestor has cracked an egg on Fraser Anning's head at a Melbourne meeting, following the Senator's controversial comments in the wake of the Christchurch shooting. Details here: https://t.co/qFnGpfr0oq pic.twitter.com/gJdLDvNvd0— The Sydney Morning Herald (@smh) March 16, 2019
Video shows the senator speaking when a kid with a smartphone steps forward and cracks an egg on the back of his head. Technically, I imagine this could be construed as some form of assault, but Anning then went ballistic, smacking the kid twice before being separated from him.

The teen was taken into custody, but later released. A GoFundMe has set up for his legal and other fees. (I have not verified it.)
