If you harass Kevin Smith's daughter, the 'Jay and Silent Bob' star will strike back!

The 47-year-old actor, director, and proud dad supported his daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, on Monday, after an Instagram user left an NSFW comment on her page that called the 17-year-old actress a litany of derogatory remarks, including "ugly" and "talentless."

"What it's like to be my daughter," Kevin revealed on Instagram, explaining that she got the Instagram hate for "the heinous crime of posting a pic of herself."

"Way to unload on a teen girl because YOU have nothing to do in life," Kevin said, adding that despite the abusive comment, Harley Quinn "thought it was funny," and was "bemused by the bitterness."

"Here's a nickel's worth of free advice for folks like this Troll," Kevin suggested. "If you hate me (or my kid) this much, the better use of your time is to make YOUR dreams come true, instead of slamming others for doing the same."

"Create something nobody's ever seen before and there is a good chance the world will notice you," he wrote. "Attacking teen girls on the Internet ... requires no discernible skill or talent."

"You want attention? Don't make yourself mad, make something original and fun," Kevin concluded the post. "Because if you're not being useful in this world you're being useless. Don't be useless: go make stuff that makes people happy!"

Read on below for the entire comment and exchange. (WARNING: NSFW language throughout.)

What it's like to be my daughter: 17 year old @harleyquinnsmith_ received this message simply for the heinous crime of posting a pic of herself on @instagram. I have zero clue what the reference to #TheMatrix is all about but, wow - way to unload on a teen girl because YOU have nothing to do in life. But even though I should be apoplectic about it, my kid thought it was funny. "I'd be mad if I had a tiny dick and anonymous voice too," she said, bemused by the bitterness. But here's a nickel's worth of free advice for folks like this Troll: if you hate me (or my kid) this much, the better use of your time is to make YOUR dreams come true, instead of slamming others for doing the same. The best revenge is living insanely well - so if you wanna get back at a 17 year old girl for the grievous crime of enjoying her life, the best way to do it is to succeed in your OWN existence. Show the world WHY we should be paying attention to you instead of anyone else. Because randomly attacking others merely communicates how creatively and emotionally bankrupt you are. You think you have something to offer the world but others are getting all the attention? Don't bitch or punish the world: just create. Create something nobody's ever seen before and there is a good chance the world will notice you. Attacking teen girls on the Internet is the saddest form of masturbation that exists and requires no discernible skill or talent. You want attention? Don't make yourself mad, make something original and fun. Because if you're not being useful in this world you're being useless. Don't be useless: go make stuff that makes people happy! #KevinSmith #HarleyQuinnSmith #YogaHosers

Previously, Harley Quinn called out the same comment on her Instagram, writing, "There are trolls everywhere you go but you can't let it get to you!"

"At first I was like alright that hurts, but then I realized who the actual f**k cares?" she added. "I decided to laugh it off because no matter what, there are always going to be people in your life that are either jealous of you, don't like you or perhaps are just looking to be negative, but you can't let them get to you because if you let them upset you then they're winning."

Explaining that she "didn't sink to his level," Harley Quinn noted, "Everyone is so fantastic in their own unique way so don't let anyone try to demean you of your worth. With 1 person trying to shut you down, there will be another 100 people there to support you."

"Don't ever let some stranger on the Internet try to bring down your self confidence because you are wonderful just the way you are," she said. "Kill em with kindness kids."

What an amazing way to respond to online hate!

So lots of you probably saw this lovely comment someone decided to post on my photo out of the kindness of their heart and let this just be an example to you that there are trolls everywhere you go but you can't let it get to you! I was at Disneyland with my boyfriend and family yesterday having the most amazing day and while in line for a ride I opened Instagram and this stared me down in the face. At first I was like alright that hurts, but then I realized who the actual fuck cares??? Why should I let this sad ass troll who clearly either has a stick so far up his ass it's affecting his moral compass or is compensating for an insanely small dick ruin my day?? So I decided to laugh it off because no matter what, there are always going to be people in your life that are either jealous of you, don't like you or perhaps are just looking to be negative, but you can't let them get to you because if you let them upset you then they're winning. You may be thinking why are they making such a big deal out of a stupid online comment, but my dad and I just want to give you a glimpse of what we deal with all the time and how we're able to rise above it and carry on. This troll said he wanted me DEAD. That is obviously not something that anyone wants to hear ever, but I was still able to carry on and have a fantastic day because I didn't sink to his level. Words are an extremely powerful tool so it's your choice whether to use them to spread positivity and make the world a better place or be like this troll who was obviously looking to ruin someone's day. Everyone is so fantastic in their own unique way so don't let anyone try to demean you of your worth. With 1 person trying to shut you down, there will be another 100 people there to support you. So do what you love and spread positivity because life is too short to waste it either being a troll or paying attention to them!!!! Don't ever let some stranger on the Internet try to bring down your self confidence because you are wonderful just the way you are!! Kill em with kindness kids❤️💯✨💞🐇
