YouTube comments add to Rutgers brawl experience

The only thing better than a good, old-fashion street fight caught on video is the commentary that goes along with footage of people walloping each other.

Take, for example, this rumble outside the student center on Rutgers University’s New Brunswick, N.J. campus. The brawl broke out following a weekend celebration called RutgersFest (it should be noted that among prohibited actions are moshing, crowd surfing, video taping and smoking, but there’s no mention of beating the snot out of one another).

In the past you could witness a fight, get a giggle, then go on your way. But thanks to YouTube, now we get the rest of the story. Such as, according to laurie0091 (luckily she edited herself):

"first of all all u commenters dont know ish those were my two daughters , these dudes came at them nd got shut down so itis what it is THE BRATPACK GOT FD UP AND SO DID HER MAN ZAE JACKSON HE IS THE ONE GETTING HIS ASS HANDED TO HIM….ND FOR THE STUPID COMMENT ON WHY THE GIRLS WERENT ARRESTES THEY DONT HAVE THE WHOLE VIDEO WHERE IT SHOWS ZAE JACKSON OF LB RUNNIN UP ON MY DAUGHTER TRYN TO FIGHT HER HE IS A BITCH FOR HIS ACTIONS ND MY DAUGHTERS ND HER FRIEND DID WHAT THEY HAD TO Fll back..team yg"

But laurie0091 isn’t the only one talking. Listen to lolsmileyface017′s words of wisdom (and with a handle like that, how could this commenter not be a bundle of joy?):

"u should not be proud that this is how your girls behave in public. You shoulve raised them to act like women and not like menaces to society. I’m sure there are thousands of other mothers like you. YOU along with those like you are the reason why MY generation is going straight to hell! The racism on this page is quite disgusting. People want to be thugs over youtube.. seriously smh".

As for the racism, we’ll let you read that for yourselves, it’s too much to repeat here.

And summing it all up for us? GruntBIGG, who offers, "f- rutgers.. .its the penn state of new jersey…yuck"
