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.

To my family, friends and people around the world, I would like to thank everyone for all the overwhelming support. I’m so proud to stand for what is right and I encourage everyone to stand up for what you all believe in. I do not condone violence and I do not condone egging someone, and everyone has a right to an opinion, but as I listened to Senator Anning for over an hour, I realised a point had to be made and if no one was going to do anything, then I was. I’m so humbled to be able to shed more light in response to the Christchurch shootings. My heart goes out to all who are suffering. I’ve had one lady from Christchurch tell me that through this period of darkness in her life, it’s the first time she’s smiled since the shootings, which meant so much to me. The main focus here has to be the people who are suffering and the issue at hand, and I’m really happy it has united people the way it has. I will continue to try and make the world a better place and I hope the end of racism is on the horizon. Keep spreading the love ❤️. Will Connolly
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!
