The Easter Bunny was hopping mad during a mall brawl.
With the spring holiday only a week away, parents flocked to the Newport Mall in Jersey City, NJ, so their children could get a photo with the Easter Bunny himself.
What they didn’t expect to see was the Bunny exchanging blows with customers waiting in line to have photos taken.
Video captured shows the man, sans his bunny head, wailing on a customer before security was able to separate them. He even punched another man, who was trying to get him away from the chaos, in the face before rushing back and continuing to fight with the first man.
The fight occurred when the 22-year-old man, playing the role of the bunny, said a baby slipped off the chair after she took a photo with him, according to Jersey City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill. The baby’s father reportedly began verbally and physically attacking him before the bunny sprang into action, taking off his costume head and paws in order to use his fists.
Both men were taken to Jersey City Medical Center-Barnabas Health for minor injuries, Morrill said.
No charges have been filed as the investigation continues.
Surely this will be an Easter to remember for any child who witnessed their beloved Cottontail with fists up.
