Even while mercilessly slinging insults toward an adorable white kitten, Channing Tatum is still likable.

The actor said eight “hateful” things to a little kitten on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Monday, in honor of his upcoming Quentin Tarantino film The Hateful Eight.

Amid a room of pink and fluffy white furniture, with a backdrop of hearts and rainbows, Tatum faced off against the cat and delivered some hilarious slurs.

“You’re such a piece of s—,” he said, opening the floodgates of unnecessary hate.

Next, “Hey kitten, you smell like garbage and fish, bro.”

Throughout the tirade the kitten remained composed, until the clip’s end when it (aka a stuffed version of the animal) launched, claws bared, at the actor.

Tatum, 35, admitted over the weekend that he was “really intimidated” when he first began filming The Hateful Eight, which also stars Samuel L. Jackson.

After shaking off the first-day jitters, however, Tatum said he was happy to get to collaborate on the western with Jackson, who he met on his first film ever, Coach Carter.

“I did my first movie ever with Sam, and to come full circle like this is pretty extraordinary,” he said.

The Hateful Eight lands in theaters on Christmas Day.
