Stating that he was opposed to "any form of violence", Anning claimed that the atrocity highlighted the "growing fear over an increasing Muslim presence", in both New Zealand and Australia.
Britain's Home Secretary Sajid Javid has criticised an Australian Senator who appeared to suggest that Muslim immigration was the cause of a mass shooting at mosques in New Zealand that has left 49 dead.
"The 17-year-old has been released pending further enquiries".
The 17-year-old's motives for egging the senator are not immediately clear, but he was quickly dubbed #EggBoy on social media and is getting worldwide praise for what many are seeing as him standing up against Islamophobia and racism.
Canberra, as well as the rest of the world, was quick to denounce Anning's statements, particularly the nation's prime minister, who stated that Anning's "views have no place in Australia", cited by the Washington Post.
While British home secretary Sajid Javid tweeted to say: "At a time for grieving and reflection, this Australian senator. fans the flames of violence and extremism".
The prime minister announced the government would censure the Queensland independent, after he and Foreign Minister Marise Payne joined the congregation at Lakemba Mosque for prayers on Saturday.
News.com.au political reporter Sam Clench wrote: "The Australian senator now spewing racist garbage in response to the New Zealand mosque attack got 19 votes at the last election".
