ABC crime reporter Mark Reddie has shared his shock after he and his friends were egged by a group of homophobic thugs after Pride.

Reddie was returning from Sydney’s annual Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras on Saturday (6 March) with a group of “gay guys” when a car stopped suddenly in front of them.

The group of men inside the car then repeatedly launched eggs at Mark Reddie and his friends, the TV reporter alleges.
