Jersey City police say the father of a one-year-old posing for a picture with the Easter bunny became physically and verbally violent after the toddler slipped off the Easter bunny’s knee.
A video of the unsavory event went viral on Twitter Sunday.
The clip shows what appears to be a brawl between the Easter bunny and patrons of the Newport Centre in Jersey City, New Jersey.
