Drive-by nightmare. Kevin Smith’s daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, had a scary run-in with two strangers pretending to be Uber drivers in L.A. late last month. The Yoga Hosers actress revealed what went down in a lengthy Instagram post over the weekend.
“I was just standing outside a Starbucks in Brentwood, where I was waiting for my Uber, when a large, beige car drove up to me and tried to get me to think they were my Uber. There were two white men (age 20–30) in the driver (blonde hair) and passenger (brown hair) seat with an Uber sign on their front window, but they were most definitely not Uber drivers,” Harley, 16, wrote on Saturday, January 30. “When I asked who they were there to pick up, making sure it was the right car, they wouldn’t answer me and said to get in the car.”
Harley says she grew even more suspicious when she noticed they didn’t have the Uber app on their phone. She was in “too much haze of fear” to film the “disgusting dudes,” but hopes that her message will warn others.
BE ALERT! Two white men in beige Jeep posed as @Uber and just tried to talk my kid into getting in their car outside Brentwood Starbucks.

“Protect yourself and never ever get in a car without checking that it’s the correct car first!!!” she continued. “We have already reported it to the police, but more information would be helpful in finding them. Be careful and look out for yourself/others!!!!”
Harley’s famous dad also posted about the incident. “BE ALERT!” the Clerks director tweeted. “Two white men in beige Jeep posed as @Uber and just tried to talk my kid into getting in their car outside Brentwood Starbucks.”
He even bought her a “Sorry Men Suck” cake to make her feel better. “Just when I was about to lose faith in humanity after almost being kidnapped today, my dad got me this cake and made me remember that some people, like himself, make the world a lot better,” she captioned via Instagram.
