Whose Line Is It Anyway? improv actor Colin Mochrie is the kind of parent who would go to the ends of the earth to fight for his trans daughter, including taking on the trolls who direspected her on social media.

The haters would soon discover their pathetic remarks were no match for the blow delivered by the comedic actor.


When Kinley Mochrie came out to her parents in April 2016, she didn't doubt for a second they would be nothing but loving and supportive.

In January 2017, as all of Mochrie's followers on Facebook and family knew of his daughter's transition, the Canadian actor decided to share a message on Twitter about acceptance.

He posted:

The tweet got more likes and comments than the actor expected. Since then, Mochrie openly shared news of his family to a much broader audience.


On Monday, September 3, in a Facebook post accompanied by a beautiful family portrait, the proud father wrote:

"Happy birthday to my lovely daughter!"
"28 years old and everything we've ever hoped for in a child."


While the post got plenty of love, the trolls were not kind and posted judgemental comments blasting Kinley on her birthday.

But Colin Mochrie had the perfect response to the rude comments on his celebratory Facebook post.

The actor took to both Facebook and Twitter and posted:

"Thanks to the fans of this page for being supportive and human."
"To the trolls, my thoughts and prayers to your body for losing it's mind and soul so tragically."



As far as fans are concerned, this dad is winning.








Colin's love for his daughter inspired others to come forward with their own stories of struggle and acceptance.











Colin told CBC's Wendy Mesley that he consulted with Kinley before making that first Twitter post back in January 2017.

"I think we were both idiotic in a way."
"I didn't really think of the full ramifications. I just thought 'I'm just putting this positive thing out there.'"

And while the comedian was fully supportive of his daughter's gender transition, he couldn't help but be concerned about her safety when statistics show violence against transgender people, especially women, is so prevalent.

Mochrie said his first thought for his daughter was:

"God, let her be safe."

Mochrie was away from home when Kinley came out to her mother. The actor said he wondered:

"You go through this thing, 'Oh, well now my child has changed genders, does that mean that previous child is now gone'?''
"But then, once Kinley came through the door, I went 'Oh yeah, its my kid', its the exact same kid, but as I say 'with a different coat on'."

It seems that it's far more common to hear somebody complain about their job than to hear them give a glowing review of their line of work.

How many times have you stubbed your toe because you weren't paying attention and banged it against some furniture? Hurts like hell, doesn't it? Have you ever slipped outside because you didn't realize the rain––or ice––on the roads would be so slick? You probably have (and hopefully you didn't bang yourself up too much). You probably hope no one was looking... to save yourself from certain embarrassment.

Believe it or not, there are people out there who've fared worse.

Why are you mad? It's unhealthy. Do we even comprehend why we're miffed half the time? I don't, I've lost track. Although, I do get angry at the drop of a hat. So each origin can be arduous to track.

There really is no exact explanation as to why tempers can be set off. Of course, we are in sensitive times and emotions are are always at an edge, so that doesn't help.

But we really need to do some serious examining into what sets us off so easily. Anger is not an emotion that is sustainable or often has to do with logic. But let's try to find some...

Love is crazy. I've finally come to that conclusion. And marriage, you take your life in your hands and just throw caution to the wind in hopes of survival with that step.

When love falls apart, things can get real messy, real fast. And I've always been stunned by people's behavior when love subsides.

More often than not, it's like they become different people. Sometimes people are beset by tragedy and grief and sometimes people smile wide and move on. It's a coin toss.

But my favorite post divorce personality has to be the sudden super villain. Oh honey watch out for them!
