"I am utterly opposed to any form of violence within our community, and I totally condemn the actions of the gunman", he wrote.
Anning blamed the Christchurch attack on the "increasing Muslim presence" in Australia and New Zealand.
Prominent Australian-Egyptian television host Waleed Aly made a speech on The Project, a nightly current affairs chat show, saying he would be "dishonest" if he said he was shocked by the attacks in Christchurch.

His controversial comments were widely condemned, including by Prime Minister Scott Morrison who described his statement as "disgusting".
Media Watch's Paul Barry went on to say Senator Anning can "resign from parliament as soon as he cleans (the egg) off".
