Chairs thrown as South African TV debate descends into mass brawl (VIDEO)
A televised election debate in South Africa erupted into chaotic violence when rival groups began throwing chairs at each other live on air.

Supporters of the Land Party and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) turned on one another during Friday’s event, though local media reports that it’s not clear what exactly sparked the huge brawl.

Presenter Leanne Manas tweeted that the event was canceled after the violent outburst.

South Africa’s general election is due to be held on May 8.
