Global News reports:
The “heroic” teen that smashed an egg into the back of the head of an Australian anti-Muslim senator over the weekend has doubled-down on his internet fame by donating his “reward” money to the victims of the horrific New Zealand mosque attacks.
William Connolly, who quickly became known as “Egg Boy,” was thrusted into social media fame after the 17-year-old egged Fraser Anning after the senator blamed New Zealand mosque attacks on the country’s immigration program.
A GoFundMe page was set up for “Our hero EggBoi,” to help cover any “legal fees” and “more eggs.” However, since Connolly’s new-found fame, the original goal had been raised to $50,000 “in homage to the 50 victims of the Christchurch terrorist attack.”
At this writing the fund has exceeded its goal and stands at around $37,000 USD.
#EggBoy has made headlines around the world and now a street artist has painted a mural of the 17-year-old egging Senator @fraser_anning. The painting went up in Hosier Lane overnight. @9NewsMelb @9NewsAUS pic.twitter.com/vWl4SGicH5
