Welcome to Black Friday 2016.
In a Durban, South African supermarket during the Black Friday sales riot breaks out over cheap toilet rolls.
Phone footage shows a huge crowd of people swarming over a shop assistant as she hands out large family-size packs of toilet rolls to customers.
Video from a Walmart in Bainbridge, Georgia shows shoppers fighting to grab towels from the display.
In a Houston Walmart shoppers fought over a $99 12-Volt kiddie convertible.
Via The American Mirror…
When given the signal, shoppers began grabbing the large boxes as quickly as they could, with one man digging for the bottom box and nearly losing his pants.
He repeatedly threw elbows and slaps, and fought off another man trying to grab the box, before another tried to claim it, too.
In Fairfield, California shoppers just started throwing punches in the middle of a shopping mall.
A group of about a dozen shoppers brawled as others stood by recording the melee on their cell phones.
There was a similar shopping mall fight in Modesto, California…
