'Reppin' the Aussie legend': NBA superstar's nod to Egg Boy

Egg Boy has truly gone global.

Australian NBA star Ben Simmons has thrown his weight behind the viral star by writing ‘Egg Boy’ on his sneakers.

On Wednesday, Simmons was spotted before his game for the 76ers sporting a new pair of Nikes, the words “Egg Boy” scrawled across the side in texta.

It was the latest message Simmons has written on his sneakers in the wake of the Christchurch terror attack.

He then scored 28 points as Philadelphia held on to beat the Charlotte Hornets 118-114 for their fifth-straight victory.

Egg Boy released without charge

The Melbourne teen (real name Will Connolly) has been released by police without charge, pending further investigations.

The 17-year-old was whacked in the face by Senator Fraser Anning and taken to the ground after he slapped an egg on the independent’s head on Saturday.

Connolly’s actions came after the ultra-conservative Queensland senator said Muslim immigration contributed to the 50 deaths in the Christchurch massacres.

Police confirmed the teen had been interviewed and released on Tuesday afternoon, pending further investigation.

When asked if it appeared Victoria Police would lay charges against Will, his lawyer Peter Gordon said he had received “no indication” that would happen.

“But obviously police have got a job to do,” he said.

“To use Will’s own words, the police have been awesome.”

Mr Gordon also confirmed his client would not pursue legal action against the Senator or his supporters who put him in a headlock.

The teen will also donate the money from an online crowdfunding campaign to the victims of the Christchurch mosque shooting.
