The incident came on the heels of lashing out of Muslims by the Queensland senator, rather than supposed condemnation of the Christchurch mosque attacks in which at least 50 Muslims were killed.

The hero teen identified as Egg Boy, who won the nation's heart overnight by smashing an egg on the head of disgraced senator Fraser Anning, has taken to social media to speak out about the experience.

Fraser Anning punches 17-year-old boy in the face.

Anning immediately turned back and struck the boy on his face before continuing to fight with him.

The 17-year-old teenage boy at the centre of Senator Fraser Anning's egging has commented after he was set upon by members of Senator Anning's team.

A spokesperson from Victoria Police said the teen was apprehended and released.

"Does anyone still dispute the link between Muslim immigration and violence?" he wrote on Twitter.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has called an Australian senator's comments on the Christchurch mosque shootings "disgusting".

Australia's PM said that "those views have no place in Australia, let alone the Australian parliament".

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten today criticised the teenager, telling reporters in Melbourne that egging Senator Anning was "a mug thing to do".

Mr Morrison today announced the Coalition and Labor would pass a motion censuring Senator Anning for the statement when Parliament returns next month.

"Rather than demonstrating empathy and compassion, he has chosen instead to vent his racist prejudice and hatred against Islam and Muslims by blaming the victims instead of the criminal perpetrators", he said in a statement today.

"Money for EggBoi", a fundraising campaign launched to cover the teen's legal fees and "more eggs", had raised more than $10,000 of a $2,000 goal within 14 hours of being created Saturday.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison suggested Anning was unfit for office.

The grotesque response, as well as statements he made on Saturday about the killer, are so steeped in Islamophobia and racism that a single egg seems far too kind.

The petition states: "Senator Fraser Anning has no place in the government of our democratic and multicultural country".
