A video posted on Reddit showing a priest slapping a baby during a baptism is shocking viewers and garnering attention.

Attempting to console the child, the priest grabs the child's face and tells him to "calm down".

The baby can be seen crying as the family hands him over to the priest.

The parents are visibly shocked by the slap and try to pull the baby away from the priest.

After the slap, the crowd can be heard gasping and the mother and father of the child appear shocked. But he soon loses his temper and hits the child in the face.

It is still unclear where the video was filmed. However, the priest is speaking French and the story appeared on a local news website of Martinique and Guadeloupe, French territories in the Caribbean Sea.

The 40-second video has sparked outrage across social media with one user saying: "I probably would have slapped the dude myself".

According to the poster, the baby starts crying and the priest points and says: "This is called a tantrum". After several failed attempts, the priest smacks the baby on his face.
