Centre mall in Jersey City ground to a halt on Palm Sunday afternoon when a fistfight erupted between the shopping center’s Easter bunny and an apparent customer. Onlooker Kevin Pineda captured the incident in a Twitter video, which has gained over 1,000 retweets since it was posted Sunday.
“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 Post, “We looked down and a woman was attacking the man in the bunny suit and then the rest is in the video.”
While it’s unclear how the fight started, “the rest” in the video is a minute-long, multi-person brawl centered around the partly-costumed Easter bunny and a man in a brown shirt. A security guard and other mall-goers try to tear the two apart, with another man in red appearing to throw a punch in the altercation and a blue-clad woman seeming to get knocked back in the tussle. Meanwhile, a small child can be seen rushing out of the Easter set,
