Gabby Douglas isn't the only person being unfairly insulted on social media. In fact, if you're on social media, on some feed somewhere - you, too, are probably being insulted. Filmmaker Kevin Smith ( Clerks , Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back ) knows a thing or two about people trolling him and his work, and when he noticed his 17-year-old daughter Harley Quinn Smith (a star of Smith's new movie, Yoga Hosers ) being trolled on Instagram, he struck back.

Unlike her husband, former Daily Show host Jon Stewart, Tracey Stewart isn't comfortable in front of cameras - something she isn't shy about acknowledging. But she stood in front of more than a dozen reporters at a private animal-rehabilitation center in Kennett Square, Chester County, on Wednesday to gush about a new member of the Stewart family - Lily, the horse found malnourished and splattered with paint in Lancaster County in March. "She is just the sweetest, sweetest horse I've ever met," Stewart said.
