Philadelphia 76ers point guard Ben Simmons wrote "Egg Boy" on his sneakers in honor of 17-year-old William Connolly, who smashed an egg on Australian Senator Fraser Anning's head during a conversation with reporters on Saturday.
Tom Steinfort of the Today Show tweeted a picture of Simmons' shoes during the 76ers' game at the Charlotte Hornets on Tuesday.
Anning made controversial remarks following the Christchurch terror attack, which left 50 people dead after shootings at two New Zealand mosques last Friday.
Simmons, who is from Australia, isn't the only person to support Connolly. Isabella Kwai of the New York Times reported that money raised for the 17-year-old will be used to help Christchurch victims. A mural showcasing the moment has also been painted.
