20 Kids Who Are Totally Freaked Out By The Easter Bunny

The Easter Bunny is a traditional and much-loved figure in our American history, and many of us have fond memories of the sweet treats left behind by the bunny every year on Easter Sunday. However, somewhere along the line, some misguided soul thought it would be a great idea to dress up a full-grown adult in a bunny suit so kids could sit on the Easter Bunny's lap, ala Santa Claus. The trouble is, sometimes those bunny costumes get a little... scary. And weird. And definitely creepy.

The traumatized tots in these images are saying it all with their faces. It ain't pretty... but it sure is funny! Can you blame these kids for being scared? I don't care if these Easter Bunnies poop chocolate eggs and sneeze marshmallows, I wouldn't go anywhere near this bunny's lap. Good luck in therapy, kids!
