One of Anning's staffers eventually broke up the fight between Anning and the 17-year-old, prompting Anning's supporters to place the teen in a choke hold until authorities arrived, according to a video of the incident.
The altercation unfolded on camera as Mr. Anning, a senator for Queensland, faced condemnation and calls to resign over a statement he issued in the aftermath of dozens of people being slaughtered Friday at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand. "The incident is being actively investigated by Victoria Police "in its entirety" including the actions of the 69-year-old man and others".
Anning has a long history of offensive and Islamophobic statements. At the moment, there is also a fundraising page that has been set up to collect donations to help the boy with his legal fees and to acquire more eggs.
He added: "Let us be clear, whilst Muslims may have been the victims today, usually they are the perpetrators".
The attacks were perpetrated by an Australian who appears to have white nationalist views.
"These comments are appalling and they're ugly and they have no place in Australia", he told reporters in Sydney. "He should be, frankly, ashamed of himself". The KAP was initially punished for not denouncing Anning's "final solution" speech but eventually expelled him for the comments.

The Australian Labor party leader, Bill Shorten, said Anning was "chasing a headline".
Anning hit headlines yesterday for his comments regarding the Christchurch terror attack, which left 49 people dead.
Calling Friday one of the country's "darkest days", New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern described the shootings as a "well-planned terrorist attack".
