Teenager Who Egged Aussie Senator Has Been Released Without Charge

A mural of teenager Will Connolly, aka Egg Boy, has been painted over by right-wing trolls, only to be painted over again nearly immediately by anti-racism activists. A GoFundMe set up in his honor has since raised more than $70,000 with plans to "send a majority of the money to the victims of the Christchurch terrorist attack", the white supremacist attack on two mosques that claimed the lives of 50 people. The boy was later taken away by police and released without charge.

In a statement Mr. Anning clearly blamed muslims saying, "only this time they're the victims, most of the time they're the perpetrators" In the immediate wake of attck his Twitter he blamed immigration policies allowing muslim fanatics to enter New Zealand was the cause for the attack.

Seventeen-year-old Will Connolly aka "Egg Boy" cracks a raw egg over disgraced Australian politician Fraser Anning's head in Melbourne.

Lauren Bullock , 17, Morgan Barnard , 17, and 16-year-old Connor Currie were all killed in the crush. Relatives, friends and teachers have paid tribute to the three who died.

Police later announced that Connolly was released without charges. Will Connolly has become an online hero, hailed as ' Egg Boy' for many who have written to him, even raising money for his legal expenses. Following the mass shootings on Friday, Anning came under sharp criticism over tweets including one that said: "Does anyone still dispute the link between Muslim immigration and violence?" New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said she would tighten the country's firearms law in response to the mosque attack.

"We've had no indication of that but obviously Police have got a job to do and it's our instructions and it's our intention to cooperate in that process". "This was the moment I felt so proud to exist as a human being", he wrote.

A petition at Change.org to have Anning removed from Australia's parliament had garnered over 1.37 million signatures by late Tuesday evening.
