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'."

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
