Director Kevin Smith slams online criticism of his daughter

Director Kevin Smith is taking on an online troll who called his daughter "ugly" and "talentless" and wished her dead on Instagram.

Smith posted on Facebook the comment he says his 17-year-old daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, received after posting a picture of herself on Instagram. Smith writes that his daughter took the comment in stride and was "bemused by the bitterness."

He says the commenter would be better off making his "own dreams come true, instead of slamming others for doing the same."

Smith directed his daughter in "Yoga Hosers," which is set for wide release next month.
