An unidentified man was criticized by social
media users for sharing a bite-sized amount
of ice cream with a cat in a now viral video.
On June 8, Twitter account damn_elle
posted an 11-second video of the man serving
the cat ice cream, using the end of a spoon.
The cat initially hesitates but eventually licks
the ice cream, only to soon tilt backwards
as a result of receiving brain freeze.
The video, which is set to rapper Vanilla Ice’s
hit single "Ice Ice Baby," has since received
over 15,000 likes and over 600 responses.
While some Twitter users found
the clip entertaining, most were
critical of the man’s behavior.
"This is actually dangerous," one person wrote. "They have
frozen the spoon for maximum effect & sent the cat into a
seizure. Sorry to be that person but this isn’t cute or funny".
"Brain freeze for a feline can cause it to seize,"
another tweeted in response. "Very effed up
vid. Extremely abusive to freeze the spoon".
"Can we not intentionally stress animals for
entertainment value?" a third asked. "This is
closer to abuse than it is cute or charming"
