Connolly rose to fame after he broke an egg on anti-immigration senator Fraser Anning's head.
The GoFundMe page was eventually set up to raise money to cover his legal fees and help him "buy more eggs".
On a previous occasion, Anning had blamed Muslim immigration for the March 15 Christchurch shooting in New Zealand.
Connolly probably got angry on Anning because of that, and broke an egg when the latter was speaking to reporters in Melbourne, Australia, last week.
Anning, in retaliation, slapped Connolly, who was eventually arrested.
He was later released and further investigation is underway.
Connolly, 17, is facing legal charges after the incident.
His Twitter account has been suspended and he has been asked to keep his social media posts to a minimum.
A GoFundMe page was initiated by his supporters to help him.
On the platform, Connolly recently announced, "Plans to send a majority of the money (from GoFundMe collection) to the victims of Christchurch terror attack."
Meanwhile, Anning, who said that Connolly's mother should have slapped him long back, is facing the wrath of millions who have signed a petition for his resignation.
Many politicians have also condemned his anti-immigration statement.
After the video of Connolly breaking an egg went viral, many have offered him free concert tickets and vacations, while others showed their support on Twitter.

The New Zealand attack happened on March 15 when Australian-born Brenton Tarrant, 28, opened fire in Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Masjid in Christchurch, killing around 50. Politicians worldwide have condemned the attack driven by Islamophobia and have called the gunman an extremist right-wing terrorist.
