Ben Simmons Celebrates ‘Egg Boy’ With Custom Nike Hyperdunks!
A 17-year-old Melbourne boy, Will Connolly (‘Egg Boy’), became an internet sensation this week after cracking an egg on Australian senator Fraser Anning’s bald dome. The conservative Queensland senator copped intense criticism (and a little yolk) after suggesting that the violence of the recent terror attack in Christchurch was linked to Muslim immigration.
Australian point guard Ben Simmons has joined in the support for ‘Egg Boy’, rocking up in Charlotte today in a pair of custom yellow Nike Hyperdunk X with ‘Egg Boy’ written on the side.
The All-Star guard shared his support for the teen earlier in the week when he commented ‘Australian Legend’ on one of Connolly’s Instagram posts.
Scramblin’ those eggs obviously worked; the Philadelphia 76ers got up over the Charlotte Hornets 118—114.
