Gay Man's Truck Vandalized Twice In One Week: PHOTO


Jonathan Pearce faced anti-gay hate twice last week.

First, the Canadian man posted on Facebook that he was headed to Memorial University's Grenfell Campus and, after completing his work, found his pick-up truck had been egged in the parking lot. Then, on Thursday, someone spray-painted "#1 faggot" on the passenger side and back of the car, CBC reports.

"I didn't think that anybody would ever follow me anywhere to do something like that," Pearce said of the initial incident. "I just passed it off as as random act."

He now thinks differently, but has no idea who would harass him. Nor do police: they have no leads in the case.

  1. It is entirely possible that the average Canadian is in some ways more polite than the average American, but that doesn't mean that all Canadians are equally polite or that all Americans are equally polite. To assert that would be ridiculous.

  2. I wonder how people would react if I started vandalizing the words "straight, original, and hetero" everywhere.
