Earlier Saturday, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, along with politicians around the world, condemned Mr Anning for his comments.
The senator had drawn widespread condemnation for his remarks after 49 were killed in the attacks on two Christchurch mosques by Australia-born terrorist Brenton Tarrant. Whilst addressing reporters, a young male snuck behind him and smashed an egg on the back of Anning's head.
So Fraser swiftly turned around and punched the young man in the face.
Anning was criticised on Friday after trying to seek attention by saying the mosque attack highlighted a "growing fear over an increasing Muslim presence" in Australian and New Zealand communities.
Fraser Anning, who has represented Queensland in the Australian Senate since 2017 has caused outrage after he blamed "Muslim fanatics" for the horrendous killings.
Yiannopoulos said on Facebook that attacks like Christchurch happen because "the establishment panders to and mollycoddles extremist leftism and barbaric, alien religious cultures". Twitter has confirmed that an account matching the suspect's name has been deleted, and numerous media outlets report that the account had tweeted a white nationalist manifesto in the moments before the attack.
"It's not somerthing my government assosicates with or any one would seek to associate with".
I H Kauser said in a statement that unity against bigotry was critical at this sad time. "These views have no place in Australia, let alone in the Australian Parliament".
Mr Shorten said Senator Anning was "chasing a headline" and wondered whether his comments had made Australians less safe overseas.
As you can see in the video, Anning responded by hitting the teen before others nearby tackled him.
Many chose not to share the statement at all.
This is an official press release from an elected senator in Australia. "Just a nasty, ugly waste of human life".
