A flying dildo hurled at a politician's head has sent social media into overdrive.

The incident happened in New Zealand at a controversial annual event that marks the founding of the country.

The recipient of the flying sex toy, Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce was speaking to reporters when a woman threw the object at his head shouting “that’s for raping our sovereignty.”

New Zealand media has reported the woman and the dildo were both taken away by police, but the woman later posted on Facebook she had been released without charge.

Joyce told media that was the first time he'd had an object thrown at him.

"I don't think those things happen every day. I'm fine. I was a little bit surprised but we thought it was humorous at the end of it all.

"[You have] new experiences in politics every day. It's the privilege of serving," reported Joyce saying.

He tweeted “Someone send the gif over to [television host] John Oliver so we can get it over with” referring to British comedian John Oliver who often makes fun of New Zealand politics.


Social media users have been posting about the event, calling it #dildogate, which is trending in New Zealand.

The event Joyce was at happens every year at a marae (Maori meeting house) in the North Island of New Zealand.

It is a controversial day as it is where the Treaty of Waitangi was signed between the native Maori people and the British in 1840.

It signifies when New Zealand was colonised by the British, there were two copies of the Treaty, one in English one in Maori.

A number of Maori chiefs refused to sign the document and the interpretation of key points in the text has been fiercely disputed over the years, regarding Maori giving up with sovereignty in their signing of the Treaty of Waitangi.
