Dean Cain And Brian McFadden Got Dragged To Hell For Dissing 'Egg Boy'

We Aussies aren't too fond of anyone coming for our national heroes, so when actor Dean Cain and Brian McFadden criticised the teen who egged Senator Fraser Anning over the weekend, people weren't impressed.

Will Connolly, 17, was thrust into the spotlight on Saturday after he approached Anning during a rally in Melbourne and cracked an egg on the back of his head.

In footage of the incident, Anning can be seen turning around and punching Connolly twice, before Anning's supporters violently tackle Connolly to the ground.

'Egg Boy' -- as he has now been dubbed -- has since been hailed as a national treasure, with calls to award the teen 'Australian of the Year' for his efforts. However, not everyone seems to be a fan of the young man, with American actor Dean Cain now facing backlash on Twitter after saying he would have "knocked that kid cold," referring to the egg-wielding assailant.

Apart from the obvious fact that the actor seemed to be encouraging violence against a teenager, many Twitter users also pointed out the irony of Cain formerly playing Superman in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.

It's not the first time the 52-year-old has stirred up drama online.

In October last year, Cain almost came to blows with fellow actor Tom Arnold, after their Twitter feud boiled over into real life while backstage at Larry King's studio, after Arnold called Cain "another Donald Trump loving, fake Christian coward" as well as "anti-LGBTQ and racist.”

Along with Cain, it seems that former Westlife singer Brian McFadden is also not the biggest fan of Egg Boy, as he backed up Cain's Tweet by insisting the egging was an act of "violence."

People swiftly dragged the duo to hell and back over their condemnation of Egg Boy, and honestly, these guys might need to duck out for some Aloe because these guys got BURNED.

It seems the pair are in the minority, however, with a slew of celebs and artists praising Egg Boy for his brash political statement, with Aussie hip hop legends Hilltop Hoods even offering the youngster free attendance to their gigs for life.

Looks like Egg Boy won't have to ever pay for a beer in his life after this.
