Want to earn the ire of the internet? Kick a cat. Arguably more disliked than rapists and murderers, people who harm animals and post videos of it online are pretty much signing their own ass-kicking authorization slip.
Take Andre Robinson, a New York man who has eight arrests to his name, including one for using a knife to rob someone. And yet, we only know of him now because a video was posted to Facebook of him luring a cat over with a friendly pat only to boot it a good 20 feet.
Initially unidentified, Facebook put on its cape and took to the skies to ferret out the nefarious kitty kicker by first figuring out his location and then narrowing it down from there.
Once found, Robinson was arrested and charged with animal cruelty. The best part of all? His mom came to his defense by stating that he must have been high because he would never kick an animal. She’d rather have a druggie son than a cat kicker.
Oh and because I know this is why you read this far: the cat is fine.
