Who says politics is boring? Sometimes heated discussions involving political pundits can get a bit out of hand and end with in scuffle like this one involving two Jordanian journalists during a live TV discussion about the Syria crisis.

Appearing on the show "Between Opposing Opinions" on 7 Stars network, journalists Mohammed Al-Jayousi and Shaker Al-Johari had to be pulled apart by production staff after the two started shoving a table at one another, breaking it in the process.

The chaos erupted after Al-Jayousi reportedly provoked Al-Johari by accusing him of supporting the Syrian revolution.

Al-Johari responded by accusing Al-Jayousi of supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad's government in exchange for money, prompting Al-Jayousi to say, “Shut up.”

Al-Johari responded to the retort by getting up from his seat, sparking the shoving match.

A video clip of the on-air brawl has gone viral, watch it here:
