Will Connolly, 17, was hit twice by Senator Anning after he cracked an egg on the Senator's head on Saturday in protest at his controversial comments following the Christchurch terror attacks.

Connolly went viral as the flawless, realtime response to the racist views espoused by Annig, who spoke of anti-immigrant (and anti-Muslim) rhetoric directly following the Christchurch massacre despite himself being an immigrant to New Zealand.

These tributes come as "egg boy" was interviewed by police and released without charge on Tuesday, as they continue their investigation into the incident. Now he's being offered free tickets to concerts for life.

Mr Anning told reporters on Monday: "He got a slap across the face, which is what his mother should have given him long ago".

Drinking hot tea linked with elevated risk of esophageal cancer
The study examined 50,045 individuals aged 40 to 75 in Golestan, a province in northeastern Iran, for a median period of 10 years. It is generally caused by repeated aggravation to the esophagus by smoke, alcohol, acid reflux and, apparently, heat.

More than a million people have signed a petition calling for Anning's resignation.

Connolly has not responded to requests for comment.

After the egging, Connolly took on Twitter to say he was "proud to exist as a human being". Let me inform all you guys, Muslims are not terrorists and terrorism has no religion.

Anning wrote: "Today's shootings in Christchurch highlight the growing fears within our community both in Australia and New Zealand over the increasing Muslim presence". What do you do with your dissatisfaction when you have no hope of entering that sphere and effecting change there, of tackling the structures of oppression using political power denied to you? "I learnt the hard way".
