Mall Easter Bunny Gets Hopping Mad in Brawl With Customer

Hopping mad! A mall Easter Bunny got into a heated brawl with an unhappy customer at the Newport Centre mall in Jersey City, New Jersey, on Sunday, March 20.

The brutal fistfight went down after a 1-year-old girl slipped out of the Easter Bunny's chair during a photo op, according to city spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill, via The Associated Press. The father of the child got upset and reportedly started shouting at the 22-year-old man dressed as the holiday character.

Other shoppers looked on in horror as the two men started to throw punches. A video of the incident shows the mall employee — without his bunny mask and paws — hitting the parent in the face. Some onlookers tried to intervene, but the on-duty bunny returned for a second round.

Morrill tells the AP that both men were taken to the hospital for minor injuries. No charges have been filed and police continue to investigate the situation.
