Following the shooting at two mosques in Christchurch which left 49 dead, Senator Fraser Anning wrote on twitter: “The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place.”
A 17-year-old teenager holding a smartphone, broke an egg on Mr Anning's head during a press conference in Melbourne.
Multiple videos show Mr Fanning appearing to respond by hitting the teenager twice.
The 17-year-old is then wrestled to the ground by members of the audience until members of the police arrive.
