Two workers at a daycare center in New Jersey are facing child abuse charges after they allegedly instigated fights between children. The employees of the Lightbridge Academy in Cranford reportedly took and posted videos and Snapchats of the baby brawls.

Erica Kenny and Chanese White have both been fired from their jobs and could face jail time. Luckily, it seems that none of the children involved were injured.

"As parents and caregivers, we are shocked and saddened by the actions of these two individuals, and we have assisted the prosecutor’s office from the start of its investigation into this matter," the daycare said in a statement to R29. "While no children were physically harmed during this incident, we have a zero-tolerance policy for anyone who acts in conflict with the core value of Lightbridge Academy — the safety and well-being of children."

It's sadly not the first time such accusations have occurred. Three workers at a Delaware daycare were accused of similarly urging kids to fight, and filming it. The children involved were as young as three.

We want to make a "the first rule of fight club" joke, but we're too depressed by these stories.
