Kevin Smith, Daughter Harley Quinn Smith Talk Compassion, Going All the Way11:30 PM
In a funny and sweet new video, actress Harley Quinn Smith takes her filmmaker father Kevin Smith, an avowed meat lover, out for a #CompassionateMeal at plant-based restaurant Doomie’s Home Cookin’ in Los Angeles to show him that “vegan food can be just as good as non-vegan food” and to have a heart-to-heart conversation about why she decided to “go all the way” for animals.
In the video, directed by @smasherbrown, Kevin acknowledges that he came in thinking “Oh my God, how am I not going to vomit at the table because I can’t stand vegan food?” but after chowing down on a vegan pulled “pork” sandwich that he declares “100 percent convincing,” he concludes, “In a world where food tastes like this, I could do it.” Adding, “There’s a lot to eat on this planet. It doesn’t have to be something that used to be alive.”
This is the fourth video produced for Compassionate Meals, a new program from national nonprofit Farm Sanctuary which encourages people to take a friend out for a compassionate meal, engage in a dialogue about compassion, and then share the experience on social media using the hashtag #CompassionateMeals.
Founded in 1986, Farm Sanctuary works to change how our society views and treats farm animals through rescue, education and advocacy.
