Itâ€™s the kind of trashy scene you would expect to see on an American reality TV show. Two mothers get into a fight just outside of an elementary school.
The altercation however, played out in Britain.
The two women curse at each other, yelling back and forth before the moms brawl in front of children.
The footage was anonymously shared online to several social media sites.
The video starts outside the Carr Infant School in York, with a blonde-haired woman, who is initially holding a child, yelling at another mother.
She tells the woman to â€œGrow up!â€ Her rival responds with â€œOr what? Shut up.â€
Itâ€™s a simple exchange that quickly escalates. As they go back and forth, the dark-haired mom points out the literal child in the other mom’s arms.
She responds saying:
â€œI don’t care. You’ve got kids around ya. Shut your mouth.â€
She then hands the toddler to someone else before continuing to yell at the dark-haired woman.
For those of us in the states, this is apparently somewhat expected in York, England.
Welcome to Yorkhttps://t.co/Kkb5ppmGzc

Just HAD to be in the UK. Common as a particle, and begs the question, who the hell knocked these strumpets up?, clearly deaf, dumb & blind males, who thought they struck it lucky after an average of 15 years spent on dating sites, Jesus FC!https://t.co/L9dE472sSY

Bro just the fact that this happened in Acomb by someone who went to Milthorpe and York college for civil services just adds to people's already biased opinions about those places. Mums brawl in front of terrified children outside primary school https://t.co/dM9ZymPUCY

At one point the blonde-haired woman yells that the dark-haired woman needs to stop being a bully.
A-ha! Some context!
This will totally tell us who to root for.
Except it doesnâ€™t. If you were hoping for something beyond that, we donâ€™t get much.
While the â€œbullyâ€ comment seems like it should put you on the side of one of the women, that same person literally sets her child down to get ready to fight.
The pair of moms start brawling, pulling each otherâ€™s hair and fall to the ground. As they do, they knock over a child on her bike.
And thatâ€™s when they move from entertaining to dangerous.
Disgusting behaviour, how embarrassing! https://t.co/qhiOBqilJB

The women continue fighting on the ground as children scream and cry around them. Other parents rush over to separate the two.
It takes three other people to pull the two apart. The two trade comments before the video cuts out.
In a since deleted post, the Carr Infant School tried to request people stop sharing the video and report it to have it removed from Facebook.
That will likely not help, as it looks like it was initially shared to Reddit. Over on the siteâ€™s r/PublicFreakout board the video was titled â€œBritainâ€™s finest mumsâ€.
The commenters were very unimpressed with the womenâ€™s actions.
“Calm down mate. Donâ€™t drag us into this sh**. Thatâ€™s Englandâ€™s finest mums.” – MojojojoDH
“Fighting in front of your own kids and others children is about as trashy as you can get” – infecktd
“Disgusting. They don’t even have a Popeye’s in England.” – WhileYouEat
“BY ORDER OF THE PEAKY FOOKING KARENS!” – jgbelvis
It’s a nice change of pace. Usually when you have potentially bad moms on Reddit, the situation gets a lot murkier.
At this time, it has been confirmed that at least one of the women was arrested and charged with a public order offense.
She is due to appear before the magistrates in December.
