Update: Fact-checking website Snopes has said that the video featuring a woman snatching a vegetable steamer from a child was "probably staged," though no one has stepped up to explain the details behind it.
A girl slaps someone over a television. Men brawl on the floor of a mall. The scenes from this year's Black Friday rush are predictably bizarre and troubling.
And the worst part: there's probably much more to come.
In a clip from an unidentified store — a video that seems to be getting the most attention thus far — a woman is seen seemingly grabbing a vegetable steamer from a child's hands (after people literally throw themselves on top of the display of steamers in an effort to secure one).
That woman then finds herself the subject of another woman's rage — possibly the mother of the child — who tries to pry the steamer out of her hands as she screams, "Why are you being so aggressive?! You're scaring me!"
Presumably filmed on Thursday, a message accompanying the YouTube clip reads, "I'm posting anonymous because I don want 2b fired, but I work at this store ... and this lady stole a veggie steamer from a KID on black friday! Shame."
The video, which circulated widely on Friday morning, was said to likely be staged by fact-checking website Snopes, though that has not yet been confirmed. Some suspect that comedian Jimmy Kimmel is behind it, though that is not confirmed either.

Another video emerged showing two men knocking one another to the ground while throwing punches. The footage was reportedly captured inside the Mall St. Matthews in Louisville, Kentucky, on Thanksgiving night.
It's unclear what started that intense spat, but a crowd stood around the chaos and watched as it unfolded. See it below:
A similar scuffle unfolded at another Kentucky mall, according to the New York Daily News:

Then, there's video of a man at a Walmart location who apparently attempted to jump over an orange juice display:
And apparently punched a cop at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas:
At that same Walmart, there was a battle over a TV:

Unfortunately, there's likely plenty of scenes like these yet to unfold today.
