Ed Miliband was pelted with eggs in East Street market in Walworth, south London. And now, the ugly incident is captivating online viewers who are watching the shameless incident on repeat.
According to the Daily Mail, Ed Miliband was hit with eggs by a man who was following the Labour leader and the large number of journalists that were following him.
The Labour Party is a center left political party in the United Kingdom.
Miliband, no doubt shocked and embarrassed, attempted to make fun of the incident with some humor.
"This is not the first time it's happened to me, I'm sure it's not the last," he said. "I'm always looking for new ways to connect with the voters."
Miliband even managed to continue cracking jokes at his own expense long after the incident happened. Jumping onto Twitter, Miliband said the following:
"Thanks to all at East St Market for the warm welcome today. Can recommend it for easy availability of eggs."
When Miliband was pelted with the eggs, he seemed to smile and laugh off the incident, brushing the cracked egg out of his hair with ease.
At least he knows how to take an ugly insult very, very well.
