Once again, Australia’s “Egg Boy” has proven to be not the hero we deserve, but the one we need.
Will Connolly, you may recall, is the teenager who became an instant star after smashing an egg over the head of a racist, xenophobic Australian politician following the massacre in Christchurch, New Zealand. And now he’s donating legal funds raised for him on GoFundMe to victims of the shooting.
While it’s been known for a few months now that Connolly was going to donate the money, the teen posted on his Instagram account on Tuesday that he finally had made the donation, totaling nearly $100,000. No word if that’s in Australian or U.S. dollars and how much, in total, was raised from the GoFundMe campaigns, but we’ve reached out to GoFundMe for more information.

Finally!!! After a huge amount of red tape,$99,922.36 has today been transferred to the Christchurch Foundation and Victims Support. For those of you who don’t know, there were 2 Go Fund Me pages set up to help cover the cost of my legal fees and to ‘buy more eggs’. Gratefully, Gordon Legal acted probono 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. I want to thank Corey and @sajjad12345 who set up the funds and every single person who donated to the money and made this possible. To the victims of the Tragedy, I whole heartedly hope that this can bring some relief to you. Keep spreading the love. ❤️🙌🏻
In the wake of the Christchurch mosque shooting, which killed 51 people, far right Australian politician Fraser Anning issued a statement directly blaming Muslim immigrants for the attacks, saying, “The real cause of bloodshed on New Zealand streets today is the immigration program which allowed Muslim fanatics to migrate to New Zealand in the first place.”
Connolly responded by egging Anning at a public appearance, which earned the teen a punch in the face from the politician and then a gang-tackling by Anning’s entourage.
In the wake of the incident, money was raised for Connolly’s legal fees and “more eggs” on GoFundMe. That money was then handed over to Gordon Legal, who, as Connolly notes, handled his representation pro bono. So it appears as if all the money he eventually received did, indeed, go to the charities.
