Controversial comedy Kathy Griffin is certainly one for shocking acts of political protest.
She proved as much with the viral and pretty gruesome video that she put out of her holding a fake severed Trump head last year as a sign of protest against the US president.
And so it’s no surprise that one Australia’s very own political protestors, who has made headlines around the world quite recently, has drawn Kathy’s attention.
That’s right, Kathy has heard all about Egg Boy, or the Aussie teenager who’s real name is Will Connolly, and she’s so impressed by his actions that she not only wants to meet him, but she wants to DATE him!
Will ‘Egg Boy’ Connolly went viral worldwide just over a week ago after he egged controversial senator Fraser Anning in the head at a press conference after he made out-of-touch comments about the Christchurch terror attack.
While he was originally restrained at the press conference, Will was released without charge and has since come out saying he understands it may not have been the right thing to do at the time, but he felt compelled to stick up for what he thought was right.
Kathy, who’s certainly one for standing up for what you believe in no matter what the consequences, was chatting with Kyle and Jackie O this morning when she revealed that she’s found a certain soft spot in her heart for Egg Boy!
It all came about when Kathy was telling us about her night out with famed porn star Stormy Daniels.
“We went out to a restaurant, I am going to go everywhere with her,” Kathy said.
“She’s just real, she’s just funny, she doesn’t give a crap, she says whatever she feels. “I believe she told me that she’s been with 180,000 guys or something,” Kathy continued. “That’s impressive.”
She went on to discuss her own magic number when she revealed that she might just have to hold out for that special someone. And it turns out, that special someone might be Egg Boy!
“I’m holding out for when Egg Boy turns 18,” she revealed.
“He is a global sensation. He is good for the egg industry… My favourite part of this whole story though is that Egg Boy got a time out by his parents. Like he’s a global star, whether he likes it or not, and he still got a time out.”
Kathy went on to reveal that she’s newly single having recently broken up with her boyfriend. She said that her ex was trying to win her back but that he’d now have some Aussie competition.
“Let me tell you something, I’m a lot of woman,” she said about her breakup.
“He found a path to get me back, but now he’s got to go against Egg Boy.
“We’ll see, I’m on the market.”
You heard it here first Egg Boy! Turns out it’s not just political attention that he’s getting from this incident but romantic attention too!
