Easter season is upon us, but the Easter Bunny is having none of it.
A fistfight broke out on Palm Sunday at the Newport Centre mall in Jersey City between the mall’s Easter Bunny and a female shopper.
Kevin Pineda was at the shopping center’s food court when the commotion broke out and captured the action on his cell phone.
“I was just at the mall eating on the third floor when me and a couple of friends heard commotion going on downstairs, like yelling,” Pineda wrote in an email to The Washington Post. “We looked down and a woman was attacking the man in the bunny suit and then the rest is in the video.”
Here’s the action.
