’19 Kids & Counting’ Star Derick Dillard Runs Over Helpless Cat — Watch
In a new video posted to Instagram on March 1, the reality star is seen scanning a large snowy hill for a path to sled down. We see that in his line of site was an orange cat perched halfway down the slope.
We then hear Derick laugh and yell out, “Move, cat,” but instead of going a little more to his left or right side, he stays in line with the kitty.
Seconds later he jumps on the cookie sheet and gets pushed straight down the hill, slamming directly into the innocent feline! That’s not all. His family is heard laughing hysterically in the background after the cat topples over down the hill. We don’t find this video funny one bit! There was plenty of space to sled elsewhere.
Derick Gets Backlash From Fans Over Video
As you can imagine, fans quickly responded to Derick’s video on Twitter — and it’s not good! They are prompting animal abuse and are trying to figure out if he did this on purpose.
