CHRISTCHURCH: Will Connolly, from Victoria, rose to notoriety after footage of him hitting Senator Fraser Anning with an egg went viral on Saturday, March 16.
The 17-year-old has been hailed a hero by many people, with murals appearing in his honour.
People have been praising Connolly for standing up to Anning, who – after the horrific act of terrorism in Christchurch in which 50 people died – made a statement saying ‘the real cause of bloodshed’ was ‘the immigration program’.
Anning basically blamed Muslims for innocent Muslims being killed, some as young as three years old, by a white supremacist.
Connolly unfortunately took a few blows to the head after egging Anning, and was even put in headlock by some of Anning’s team.
Connolly was later escorted away by police, and has urged others not to do the same.
