Director Kevin Smith is best known for his hilarious films, such as “Clerks” and “Mallrats,” but the man who is so skilled at serving up comedy with a big side of raunch showed his softer, more serious side on Twitter recently. After watching the documentary, “Blackfish,” Smith shared his thoughts about the film.

When Smith first tuned in to the film, he wrote, “Finally watching @BlackFishMovie. Holy. S**t. This is depressing. I’m never going to a zoo or aquarium again.”

The film clearly stuck with the director, who took to the Twittersphere again the next day, writing:

“15 hrs since watching @BlackFishMovie and the mother orca screaming for her child still haunts me. Please, @SeaWorld: time to #EmptyTheTanks.”

The Blackfish Effect plows on!

    Good for him! $eaWorld, zoos, aquariums, rodeos, horse races, dog races, circuses are all prisons and labor camps where animals are denied everything that is natural to them and many are abused. I’m so glad to see people’s eyes being opened to the sad reality and not supporting cruelty anymore.

  • Reason # Whatever why Kevin Smith rules. The thing haunting me, when they jerked the whale off. Beastiality and prostitution. Also, the Mom’s screams.. they are ringing through my ears,

    Good for him, but I think the rest of the world is still haunted by what we had to endure in “Mallrats”.

My “fighting words” are not calling someone “elitist,” “stupid,” or a “lunatic.” They’re “education,” “freedom,” and “equality.”

Campaigns against fur, whether that’s at the PETA level or a small mobbing like this, don’t work because they promote the use of other animal products.

The two sides claim to both have the “health and well-being of animals” in mind in this partnership, but one likely said “after profitability” under their breath.
