Family sues Kissimmee daycare over child’s viral Easter bunny reaction video

OSCEOLA COUNTY, FLORIDA — A Kissimmee family is fighting back after a video of their toddler’s terrified reaction to the Easter bunny at her daycare went viral.

Cassandra Bryson is filing a lawsuit against the Around the World Learning Center where the video of her daughter Surai was taken. Attorney’s say the daycare violated her privacy request after she had signed a form denying workers permission to photograph or videotape the child.

The clip, which has been viewed millions of times on social media, shows Surai jumping out of her seat and screaming during a surprise visit from the costumed Easter bunny. The video quickly went viral, sparking memes and punchlines for late night hosts like Jimmy Kimmel.

“I think this is the proper way to react when a 7-foot tall rodent shows up at your school,”  Kimmel joked during his late night show.


Bryson tells NBC News in Miami that there is nothing funny about the video.

“You can see the distress in her face and it’s bringing millions of people so much joy and laughter.”

Details of the lawsuit will be released Wednesday.
