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.

Jersey City spokeswoman Jennifer Morrill said both the father and the 22-year-old man inside the Easter bunny suit were hospitalized and treated for minor injuries.

The police are currently investigating the incident. So far, no charges have been filed.
