Far-right Australian senator egged after New Zealand shooting comments

(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Australian Senator Fraser Anning was left with egg on his face on Saturday (March 16), a day after his controversial comments about the New Zealand mosque shootings.

The senator, who has a history of racist comments, was egged at a news conference and proceeded to physically lash out at the person who egged him.

On Friday (March 15), Senator Anning released a statement saying that the "real cause of bloodshed" in New Zealand was the "immigration program which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand", and that it highlighted the "growing fear within our community... of the increasing muslim presence".

His comments sparked outrage across the country, and an online petition calling for his removal from parliament gained over 265 000 signatures within 24 hours.
