Dillard can be heard saying “move cat” just before being pushed right into its path by fellow Duggar son-in-law Ben Seewald, who is married to Duggar daughter Jessa.

On the video clip, you can hear members of the Duggar family laughing and cheering as the cat is hit. The cat jumped to the side after being hit and did not appear to be hurt.

As of Wednesday morning, the video had received nearly four-thousand comments — mostly negative.

“It’s obvious you didn’t take to consideration the harm you could have inflicted on that innocent animal,” one person wrote.

“Poor cat… you horrible pathetic disgusting person,” another person wrote.

The video did receive more than 24-thousand likes.

The Dillards are expecting their first baby later this month.
