Easter Bunny Gets Into Pre-Holiday Brawl at New Jersey Mall (Video)

Costumed employee punches things up in altercation with shopper

Forget about people in superhero costumes getting into brawls; people in Easter Bunny costumes getting into brawls is apparently all the rage.

A man dressed as the Easter Bunny brought new weight to the phrase “rabbit punch” at a New Jersey mall over the weekend, when he was captured on video exchanging blows with shoppers.

According to NBC’s New York affiliate, the melee arose after a 1-year-old child slipped from the Easter Bunny’s chair after his photo was taken, prompting the child’s father and the costumed employee to get into it.

The fight broke out at approximately 5 p.m. at the Newport Centre Mall on Sunday, Jersey City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill, who added that the child’s father harassed the costumed man and went into attack mode after his kid slipped.

No charges were filed according to NBC; however, police are investigating the incident.
