'Egg Boy' is back and this time he's celebrating Easter by posting a cheeky snap on Instagram.

Will Connolly shot to internet fame when he cracked an egg on the back of Australian Senator Fraser Anning's head, in response to the controversial comments the Senator made towards Muslims following the Christchurch terror attack.

The Melbourne 17-year-old uploaded a picture of himself holding a tray of chocolate eggs, with the caption "EGGS: also for the ones you love... and for protein shakes." 

Connolly commented on his post he was "just taking a serious photo with an egg that has zero connotations or underlying messages".

The Australian Senator has also made a social media post to celebrate Easter, advising people to "avoid halal certified eggs".

The 17-year-old was released without charge following the egg-cracking incident.

Connolly was hit in the face twice by the Australian Senator, and then wrestled to the ground by his supporters.

One man was charged following the altercation, after he allegedly kicked the teenager during the tussle.

A GoFundMe was created to raise money for Connolly's legal fees, despite his lawyers confirming he would not be pursuing legal action.

More than $70,000 was donated to the fund, which Connolly said he would donate towards families of the victims of the Christchurch terror attack.
