MELBOURNE: Australian senator Fraser Anning has hit the headlines yet again after his controversial comments on the real reason behind the Christchurch mosque shooting.
A young man smashed an egg on Anning’s head in Melbourne while the senator was speaking with the media.
The incident was caught on video cameras and the video has since gone viral.
In the video, Anning can be seen talking on camera when a youngster emerges in the background and smashes an egg on his head. An angry Fraser Anning can then be seen to turn around and punch the youngster several times before getting stopped.

A senator from Queensland in Australia, Fraser Anning was globally criticised after blaming Christchurch mosque shooting on increasing immigration into New Zealand.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison described Anning’s comments as “appalling” and “ugly” with “no place in Australia”, as he announced a bipartisan motion of censure would be launched.
As many as 49 people lost their lives and 48 were injured on Friday in the mass shootings at two New Zealand mosques.
