The boy was later taken away by police and released without charge.

The Australian teen who egged a far-right senator over his offensive comments about the Christchurch mosque attacks has said he is going to donate most of the money raised for him towards the victims of the terror attacks, the NZ Herald reported. The funds were originally meant to cover his legal fees and to help him buy "more eggs".

Senator Anning spoke at a press conference at Moorabin, in Melbourne's south after his comments, when teenager Will Connolly cracked an egg over his head.

"We are acting pro bono so there are no legal expenses and Will is committed that every cent of the money raised from the Go Fund Me page go to support victims of the tragedy in Christchurch".

Senator Anning released a statement after the attack saying: "The real cause of the bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration programme which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place".

Not only that, but bands and artists like The Hilltop Hoods and Violent Soho have tweeted messages of support for the teen, and offered him tickets for life to their gigs.

More than a million people have signed a petition calling for Anning's resignation. Twitter has since removed his account.

The boy said after the incident, "You'll get tackled by 30 bogans at the same time". Let me inform all you guys, Muslims are not terrorists and terrorism has no religion. "I learnt the hard way". "All those who consider Muslims a terrorist community have empty heads like Anning".
