A lot of kids cringe in mild shame when their parents post on social media. But not Kinley Mochrie. Ever since the trans woman came out to her father in April 2016, he was nothing but supportive. Even if it means responding to nasty internet trolls.
“Happy birthday to my lovely Daughter,” Colin Mochrie, a symbol of the popular improvisational comedy television show Whose Line Is It Anyway? wrote. “28 years old and everything we’ve ever hoped for in a child.”
After people tried to bring him down, Colin crafted another message. Only this one was a little more savage. And by a little, I mean they probably had to call the fire department after a burn like this.
But before you scroll down to check it out, you have to understand where Colin is coming from. “You go through this thing ‘now my child has changed gender, does that mean that previous child is now gone?’” he told CBC a while back. “It’s the exact same kid [with a] different coat on.”
Kinley said she never doubted her parents’ understanding during her transition. “It took some time but I knew that support and acceptance were on the other side,” she said. “I was not worried for a second.”
