Two New Jersey daycare workers are facing charges after allegedly setting up fights between children as young as 4-years-old — and posting them to Snapchat!
According to reports, Erica Kenny and Chanese White, the two women at Lightbridge Academy, “instigated fights among children ages 4-6…on at least one day in Mid-August.”
One of the women is reportedly accused of:
“recording video of the fights with her cell phone and sharing the video clips with several friends on social media via the Snapchat app.”
22-year-old Kenny and 28-year-old White were both charged with fourth-degree child abuse for encouraging “the children to engage each other physically.”
Kenny is also charged with third-degree endangering the welfare of a child.
The press release continues:
“In the video clips, Kenny can be heard referencing the activity as ├óΓé¼╦£Fight Club,’ quoting from the book and the movie… Approximately a dozen boys and girls at the daycare center can be seen in the video clips shoving each other to the ground and attempting to strike each other.”
Both women were fired from the Cranford, New Jersey daycare and are due in court this Friday. White faces up to 18 months in prison, and Kenny faces five years.
No children are believed to have suffered any serious injuries as of now, but officials are still investigating the case.
