In her Instagram bio, Kevin Smith‘s daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, 16, doesn’t tout her upcoming movie Yoga Hosers, which she co-stars in with Lily-Rose Depp (her dad’s the director). Instead she has these words: “proud mother of a bunny.” Harley isn’t just saying that; she has shared dozens of photos and videos of her adorable adopted pet, whose name is Cinnamon (if you think that’s cute, check out the two of them cuddling).
Harley, who’s made a cameo on reality show Comic Book Men about her dad’s Red Bank comic book shop, is a dedicated animal lover. She said in an interview with LADYGUNN, “I’m really a huge advocate for animals and I feel it’s like my job or civil duty to speak up for them. I would love to adopt as many animals as I can once I leave my parents house… I want as many as my heart desires!”
Here’s our favorite momeents Harley’s posted of Cinnamon, who’s giving us major bunny goals!
your girl has been a full vegan for a month as of today so here's a cute video of my bunny to celebrate! 🙂 being vegan is very hard but by maintaining this diet you save one animal's life everyday in addition to the tons of other animal's lives you save by not eating meat and you use 3700 less gallons of water a DAY just by not eating dairy products which require so much water to process. It's undeniably difficult, but it's worth it to be able to live cruelty free!!❤️❤️
Today is national love your pet day!!! This little bunny didn't even let me touch her when I first adopted her because she was so scared of humans after her traumatic past, but look how happy she is to be shown affection now. This is a very real example that animals DO have feelings just like us! They recognize love and compassion just like humans do and it's very clear that the feelings are requited and very appreciated. The lack of care or even understanding of the fact that animals feel things as well and have a soul is what enables humans to act so cruelly against them. This week a crowd at a beach in Argentina literally picked up a baby dolphin OUT OF THE WATER AND PASSED IT AROUND TO TAKE PICTURES WITH IT UNTIL IT DIED. When I saw that I felt physically sick and my heart broke for the lack of compassion or even humanity that some people have. They took a living, breathing animal out of the ocean and passed it around to take a fucking Instagram with it until the baby dolphin was killed and then left its dead body alone once it was no longer useful to them. Is this seriously what the world has come to? All animals, including humans, walk this world together so what makes it okay for one of us to dominate the other? It breaks my heart that living creatures have to die for the sacrifice of human pleasure. I encourage you to always treat other animals with kindness and respect because not only is it the right thing to do, but they will return the love and that is the most gratifying feeling you can have. You should do your part by advocating for animal's rights and contributing to a cruelty free life in every way you can. I've been a vegetarian for 7 months and I'm working towards being a vegan as well. In addition I try not to support clothing companies that use animal products, however it's hard sometimes because they're not always up front about it. Also educate others about what's going on in the world with animals! These are just a few simply measures that can be easily taken, but if you do any of these things your contributing to the greater good of animal welfare and I commend you for helping them with me. Let's make the world a better place for animals!
my sweet little bunny sitting on top of her house!???? Recently in an interview during Sundance, I stressed the importance of equality for animals and a lot of people had no idea what I was talking about so I thought I would explain! We as humans think that we're above other animals simply because we've progressed more as a species, and because of that, many people tend to forget that we're animals too. In fact, there was a time when we weren't able to articulate our feelings either and we were exactly the same as other animals. Other animals don't have the power of speech to defend themselves against us, so they're tested on, put in circuses, poached for their ivory and slaughtered for food/clothes against their will. A lot of people don't understand what animal equality is because they can't wrap their head around a world in which we respect one another for what we are. Humans have trouble enough respecting other humans for what they are, so it's hard for most to even accept the idea of letting other animals live a free and painless life. That is why I feel it's my responsibility to give a voice to the animals that aren't able to share their own. Species of animals are going extinct over the most inconceivable reasons and not a lot of people seem to realize that. Elephants and rhinos, especially rhinos, are on the brink of extinction because their ivory is sold for JEWELRY AND FURNITURE. DO YOU REALIZE HOW FUCKED UP THAT IS?? So in conclusion, animal equality is important to me, whether you can wrap your head around the importance of it or not, these animals need a voice to defend themselves against our very cruel and unfair world so it's our responsibility to speak on their behalf.
Cinnamon and her little tree :,) I've almost had my bunny for a year now and I can't even begin to explain the gratitude I have for the progress she's made. When I adopted her she was described as yellow and gray because of all the urine stains on her fur due to her owners' neglect to take care of her, she had two sets of metal stitches that were never taken out and had her ear spilt. Obviously having all of that happen to her dramatically affected her, and the trauma from it all caused her to be very closed off to all humans. I used to never be able to pet her or even come close to her without her getting nervous and running away, but over our year together she's come to realize how much I love her and want to take care of her. Now she LOVES pets and kisses and is so affectionate towards me. It's amazing to see how thankful animals are for simply receiving affection. A lot of people take animals for granted and think of them as an emotionless toy to have, but really they have so many emotions just like us and all they want is to feel safe and cared for. Humans aren't the only animals in this world that need affection and please remember that! Just because other animals don't have a voice like us doesn't mean that they don't have a place in this world. Stop animal violence and show compassion to those who live on this world with us! They will show compassion right back❤️
