This is an egging that is trending worldwide.
In Australia on Saturday, a 17-year-old teenager Will Connolly, smashed a raw egg on the head of right-wing Queensland senator Fraser Anning while he was being interviewed on television about the controversial statement he had tweeted earlier.
His tweet read: Does anyone still dispute the link between Muslim immigration and violence?

The teen can be seen smashing an egg on the back of Anning's head. The senator whips around and hits the young man who is then tackled to the ground by a number of men attending the Conservative National Party Meeting in Melbourne.
The teen was then removed by police and later released.
A fundraising page has subsequently been set up to cover his legal costs. Thousands of dollars have already come pouring in and Connolly says he wants all the money raised to go to the victims of the massacre's families.
And various bands and festivals have offered him concert tickets for life.
He is being lauded as a hero by many on social media nicknaming him #EggBoyHero.
