The Lion King is a pretty emotional movie, especially for those young'uns. The same seemed to hold true for a pit bull pup named Luna, who was born only 4 months ago.


Josh Myers recently posted a video to Facebook of his dog Luna watching The Lion King. She stopped playing and stared at the TV to watch the scene where Mufasa dies.

During the scene, Luna begins whining and crying while Simba attempts to wake his father. She eventually settles down and can be seen watching the movie without further comment.

Myers captioned the video:

"'Anything you feel, I can feel too.' 🐾
"So Hannah and I were watching the Lion King while Luna played wildly with her toys. But right as Mufasa falls to his death, she stops and turns to the TV to watch. To see her crying at the TV was the sweetest thing I think I've ever seen."
"She even lays down right after Simba lays with his dad....We don't deserve dogs. 💚 4 months old and she's already showing empathy."

Facebook users couldn't get enough of Luna.

Several people commented on Luna's newfound fame.

Some agreed that we don't deserve dogs.

Apparently, someone insisted that there must have been a human coaching Luna, so Josh posted another video from a different angle.

Luna was tired out by the whole experience.

Dogs have a surprising capacity for empathy, as anyone who has been ill or upset and had their dog comfort them will attest. We hope Luna got lots of treats and extra attention for being so adorable!

The legal system isn't always fair, let alone just. Consider how many people out there commit serious crimes and get off with a slap on the wrist. Remember Brock Turner, the Stanford rapist? He was sentenced to six months in jail followed by three years of probation for raping college student Chanel Miller (and was later released after serving only three months). I haven't even gotten into how cruel the "justice system" is to survivors of sexual assault, which complicates matters further.

After Redditor maekeyisn't cool asked the online community, "What crimes do you think should have a more serious punishment?" people shared their opinions.

Just to put this out there: Making movies is hard.

Burgers, fries, peanut butter. Apple pie, hot dogs, cheesesteaks. American food is a big part of our daily lives, but it's not normal for everybody around the globe.

When was the first time you tried sushi? Or the first time you had curry? Have you even been able to try escargot? The world is full of so many fascinating foods, and some of those foods are American--especially to non-Americans.
