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.

WATCH: This is the moment Senator Fraser Anning was egged by a teenage boy during a press conference in Melbourne. With anger running high following the deadly mosque shooting in New Zealand, the senator then punched the young man, who was then dragged to the ground. The boy was later arrested and released without charge pending investigation. "However, whilst this kind of violent vigilantism can never be justified, what it highlights is the growing fear within our community, both in Australia and New Zealand of the increasing Muslim presence".

Anning came under blistering criticism over tweets on Friday, including one that said, "Does anyone still dispute the link between Muslim immigration and violence?"

Anning was strongly criticised by Australian politicians on Friday after making controversial comments about the New Zealand attacks on Twitter.

And New Zealand's high commissioner to Australia, Dame Annette King, has condemned Anning's words and says she is "absolutely delighted" he has been condemned by Australia's government and people too.

Basically, his motivation behind the sly egging of Fraser Anning was a result of the politicians comments about the recent terrorist atrocity that killed 50 people in New Zealand.

It is understood the government and Labor party are drafting a censure motion against Senator Anning that will be presented when parliament resumes on April 1.

But the remainder of his lengthy statement attacked Islam and Muslim immigrants in startling terms.

He added: "Let us be clear, whilst Muslims may have been the victims today, usually they are the perpetrators".

"When one looks at his statement, it may as well have been an extract from the manifesto of the person that perpetrated these heinous crimes, this act of terrorism in Christchurch", Rauf said.

"The senator in question, I do not think operates by the beat of the same drum as the rest of us", he said.

"For somebody to use the privilege of Parliament, the privilege of this platform, to spew such hate is beyond comprehension", Anne Aly, the body's first female Muslim member, told the Times then.

A petition calling for Anning's expulsion from parliament has amassed about 250,000 signatures.
