A Taiwanese parliament session turned into Friday Night Smackdown



On Thursday, a fight broke out in Taiwan's parliament for a second straight day.

Footage from SETTV shows the chaotic scene as it played out. One party refused to let the premier deliver a report and that's when the mayhem ensued.

Tea cups and chairs were used as weapons in addition to a few elbows and flailing arms.

The ruling party condemned what it called the main opposition party's "violent boycott" and demanded an apology according to Agence France-Presse:

"We call for rational discussions ...to resolve differences."
Democratic Progressive Party

The fight was reportedly over a controversial infrastructure project being pitched on the floor.
