An angry protester threw a dildo at the face of a high-profile New Zealand politician during a TV interview on Friday.
The pink sex toy bounced off Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce’s shoulder as he spoke to journalists on New Zealand’s North Island. A protester flung the dildo at him, shouting “That’s for raping our sovereignty.”
“Fair to say I don’t think those sorts of things happen every day,” Joyce told TVNZ. “New experiences in politics every day; it’s the privilege of serving.”
The Minister has now been fondly re-named ‘Dildo Baggins’ by New Zealanders.
