    Anning made headlines around the globe when he was egged by a teenager following anti-Muslim comments he made after the Christchurch terror attack.

    Someone has just slapped an egg on the back of Australian Senator Fraser Anning's head, who immediately turned around and punched him in the face. @politicsabc @abcnews

    Anning unexpectedly became a senator in the middle of Australia's political citizenship crisis, during which several politicians were ejected from the parliament after discovering they held dual citizenship.

    He replaced One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts, but ended up leaving the party and creating his own — Fraser Anning's Conservative National Party — to contest the 2019 election.

    Although Senate results are yet to be finalised, it appears Anning has fallen far short of gaining the required votes to win back a Senate seat.

    His term in the current parliament will expire on June 30.

    Needless to say, there is little love lost here.
