Toronto Police Confuse Residents with Post for Missing ‘Woman’ with a Goatee
'Woke' police face backlash for post
Toronto Police have caused confusion after posting about a missing ‘woman’ despite the picture showing a biological male with a goatee.
The Twitter post stated:
“News Release – Missing Woman, Ryerson Avenue and Bathurst Street area, Isobella Degrace, 27."
“She is described as 5’10″, with a thin build, shaggy blonde hair, and a full goatee,” the Toronto Police Service said.
“She was last seen wearing a black t-shirt and grey pants.”
Apparently, observing Canada’s gender identification rules is more important than accurately describing a missing person.
Respondents on Twitter were not blind to the absurdity of the post.
“How are we supposed to find her when you post a picture of a dude?” asked another respondent.
“How would you describe this woman on the radio or via text?” asked another.
“If you laugh, it’s a hate crime,” joked one person.
Conservative journalist andy Ngo also chimed in:
The Toronto Police has released a photograph of a missing woman named Isobella Degrace and are asking for help in finding her. "She is described as 5’10", with a thin build, shaggy blonde hair, and a full goatee," the police wrote.

Despite the stupidity, Isobella Degrace was eventually located by authorities about 9 hours after posting the tweet.
