Colin Mochrie wished his transgender daughter a happy birthday in a touching publication on Facebook, only for the ferocious trolls to attack him and his family in response.
Whose line is it? Star, 60, posted a picture of herself with her daughter Kinley and his wife Debra McGrath, 64, earlier this week to commemorate Kinley's 28th birthday.
Colin first revealed last year, with Kinley's permission, that his daughter is transgender. Since then, he has been a champion of the transgender community and both he and Kinley have opened up to go through the process of transition as a family.

Kinley can be seen in the picture between her two parents, smiling at the camera with one arm around her mother's shoulders. Colin and Debra appear on each side of their daughter, both with a smile on their faces.
After Colin posted his message, some people left disparaging and abusive comments below the family snap.
One person wrote & # 39; son * & # 39; as if to correct the word & # 39; daughter & # 39 ;, deliberately denying Kinley's genre. Someone else called Colin's bats "crazy" and added: "I'm not surprised that gender dysphoria runs in your family."
A Facebook user left a comment that consisted of the word "Ew" next to three green-faced emoji, who were about to get sick.
