"The remarks by Senator Fraser Anning blaming the murderous attacks by a violent, right-wing, extremist terrorist in New Zealand on immigration are disgusting", Morrison tweeted.

In the wake of the attacks, several efforts are underway to support the local Muslim community in Christchurch, including one by the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh.

This isn't the first time Anning's comments have been received with condemnation and outrage.

So Fraser swiftly turned around and punched the young man in the face.

Footage of the incident shows a 17-year-old boy calmly walk up behind the Senator, pull out his phone and start recording before smashing an egg over his head in protest of the controversial comments.

Senator Anning struck the 17-year-old twice after the teenager broke an egg on his head while he spoke to media at a political meeting in Moorabbin, in Melbourne's south-east yesterday.

Following the altercation the teen was questioned by officials before being led away by police.

Australian Senator Fraser Anning's statement blaming the mass shootings in Christchurch on immigration and Islam is utterly contemptible and illogical, said Minister of Economic Affairs Datuk Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali.

The incident comes as Australian pols plan to censure Anning for his Friday comments linking the New Zealand mosque attacks to Muslim immigration.

The alleged murderer, Australian Brenton Tarrant, is said to have committed the crimes because he saw Muslim immigrants as 'invaders'.

An Australian politician, who blamed the New Zealand mosque attacks on Muslim immigration, was egged by a teen during a press conference in Melbourne on Saturday.

However, Scott Morrison went further today, when asked if a parliamentary motion was enough, saying: "I think the full force of the law should be applied to Senator Anning".

On Saturday, a GoFundMe page dedicated to "Our Hero EggBoi" was created to buy the teen "more eggs" and pay for his "legal fees". "He should be, frankly, ashamed of himself", said Mr Morrison, who is an evangelical Christian, after visiting Sydney's Lakemba Mosque.
