Canadian comedian Colin Mochrie shut down internet trolls earlier this week after wishing his transgender daughter a happy birthday.
On Monday, the Whose Line Is It Anyway? star celebrated his daughter Kinley’s birthday by posting a photo of himself with his daughter and his wife, Debra McGrath.
“Happy Birthday to my lovely daughter!” Mochrie wrote. “28 years old and everything we’ve ever hoped for in a child.”
However, Mochrie’s loving gesture was marred by anti-LGBTQ comments, most of which have since been deleted.
“Good that he loves his child but not that he supports a lifestyle of immorality. Just because people accept it still does not change the fact it is wrong against nature and God,” one comment read.
“It makes sense. He was always bats**t crazy. Doesn’t surprise me that gender dysphoria runs in his family,” reads another.
“Thanks to the fans of this page for being supportive and human,” the father responded. “To the trolls, my thoughts and prayers to your body for losing its mind and soul so tragically.”
Kinley revealed she was transgender in April 2016.
“My 90-yr-old mother-in-law and 87-yr-old mother[‘s] love and acceptance of our trans daughter warms me,” Mochrie tweeted. “Wonder why some who are younger can’t.”
