Australian teenager Will Connolly made headlines around the world after cracking a raw egg over controversial Australian politician Fraser Anning’s head.
The egging came after Anning made victim-blaming comments in the wake of Christchurch mosque shootings.
This prompted the creation of a GoFundMe page to raise funds for his legal fees. However, Connolly promised to donate the money to the victims.
“Finally!!! After a huge amount of red tape,$99,922.36 has today been transferred to the Christchurch Foundation and Victims Support,” he said on Instagram last night.
“For those of you who don’t know, there were two GoFundMe pages set up to help cover the cost of my legal fees and to ‘buy more eggs’.
“Gratefully, Gordon Legal acted pro-bono for me so I don’t have any legal fees.
“I decided to donate all monies to help provide some relief to the victims of the massacre… it wasn’t mine to keep.”
