19 Kids and Counting reality show star Derick Dillard, who has married into the controversial Duggar family, posted a video to Instagram on February 28 that shows him deliberately sledding down a snowy hillside into a cat, that he hits to the delighted laughter and cheers of family and friends.
While the vocal Christian has his defenders over the incident, many are disgusted and appalled by the cruel and insensitive act and the merriment it brings from the onlookers.
We hear Dillard laugh and yell, “Move, cat,” before positioning the cookie sheet he’s using as a tiny sled directly in front of the cat and heading right for him. The startled cat is seen being sent off to the side upon impact.
A young man identified as brother-in-law Ben Seewald gives Dillard a push down the hill straight at the cat as a female is heard in the background saying “Push him, push him!”
The Duggar family are widely known for their polarizing positions and activism. This Buzzfeed article, A History Of The “19 Kids And Counting” Stars’ Anti-LGBT And Anti-Abortion Comments gives an overview of the Duggars’ stance on those topics.
Here’s the video:

Call yourselves Christians, you disgusting moronic HYPOCRITES
FULL OF IT BS THAT IS AND ANIMALS ARE PURE AND KIND NOT PEOPLE THAT GO TO CHURCH AND TALK ABOUT HOW GREAT THEY ARE SIDE HUGS NO KISSING FULL OF IT IS WHAT YOU ARE
You Duggars are total scum
i don’t see a video here. i’m going to wait on judgement until i actually see the cat being hurt. the fact that you point out their traditional views on abortion and gays in such a slanted way makes me very suspicious of your motives.
The video is here — just watch it.
They had the rest of the hill to ride down and intentionally aimed at the cat.
And just so you know, “Christian” is not synonymous with “Good”. I have met many who claim they are of the Christian faith that would most definitely not land in Heaven after the lives they led.
there is a video there! Christians doesnt mean good people! horrible. act and he didnt even stop to see if the cats was ok!! hes a real WANKER!
Somebody big and strong needs to run over that no good punk!!! Why weren’t animal abuse charges filed? And the station who runs this stupid show and pays them needs to cancel this show. No one needs to ever abuse an animal! To me this show should not even be on…earning money cause you keep popping out cold hearted brats …my grandmother had 20 kids and didn’t use them to gain money. So they proudly showed off this video???? Where is the cat? Hurt ? Terrified? Shame on them for boasting about hurting one of Gods creatures!!! They are sick and evil.
This clearly is animal abuse and I don’t care if they have a TV show or not. They portray themselves as upstanding citizens, honorable, loving and a bunch of other lies. Why haven’t the authorities stepped in and removed the animal from their home. Are they above the law? They’re disgusting and should be ashamed of themselves. These are evil people.!
Can somebody please spay and neuter the Duggars!!!!!!!!!!! They really need to stop breeding!!!!!
This is unacceptable PERIOD !!!!!!
Like Holly Hobby Lobby, they’ll be all high and mighty and claim that they’re not perfect, just forgiven.
AFAIC, they give religion a bad name.
Christian is Christ like. I in no way am agreeing that an animal should be hurt in any way. I am an animal lover. But a true Christian is someone who has accepted Jesus as lord and savior and His sacrifice for the cleansing of their sins past and future . We are all human and we will ALL still make bad choices snd mistakes. Accepting Jesus is living under His grace. Not one of us could work our way into heaven. I know I surely can’t no matter how hard I try. I will not judge here. ..because I AM NOT THE JUDGE! ♡
I think spaying & neutering these morons is an excellent idea. And please take their show off the air-these people are just too stupid to live. Don’t understand why anyone would be interested in what goes on in their lives.
i will NEVER watch the Show again. Cruelty to animals is not funny and no joke!
