A New Zealand teen who has been named “Egg Boy” after smashing an egg on the head of an
Australian senator will donate the money raised for him to the victims of the
Christchurch mosque shootings.  Will Connolly, 17, was recorded on live TV Saturday
egging Queensland Senator Fraser Anning, who had remarked that Muslim immigration was the
reason for the recent terror attacks that left 50 people dead and dozens more injured at two

“The real cause of the bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program,
which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place,” Anning said in a
statement about the attacks on Friday. In the video, Anning slaps the teen two times after the
egging, and then Connolly is tackled to the ground and put in a chokehold. He was later arrested.

A GoFundMe titled “Money for Egg Boy” has been started for the Australian teen and had raised
more than $50,000 by Monday afternoon. The money was supposed to go toward Connolly’s
legal fees and “more eggs,” according to the campaign, but the teen has said he is going to donate
his money to the victims of the shooting.
