Transgender woman claims vandals spray-painted her car with hate speech

DENVER — A transgender woman says vandals spray-painted hateful words on her SUV in Denver after she decorated it with slogans protesting the results of the presidential election.

Amber Timmons previously had written messages on the windows of her silver Nissan XTerra, including “Not my president!” and “Equality!!”

When she woke up Tuesday morning, she said she found someone had spray-painted their own messages on the SUV.

Timmons posted photos of the vandalism on her Facebook page Tuesday, with the caption “Nothing like waking up and get ready to go to work and find this…”

The vandal or vandals wrote “Die he she” and “Tranny die!”  on the sides of the SUV and something about Donald Trump on the hood.

Timmons’ Facebook post received more than 400 comments in four hours.

Many accused her of vandalizing her own vehicle to get attention. Some pointed out the swastika was backward, and posted cartoons, graphics and images of swastikas.

Many others posted messages of support.

“I can do anything to help get this fixed don’t hesitate to ask,” one person commented.

“I’m so sorry you had to deal with such hate and evil… please know that you are loved!” another person wrote.

Timmons said she filed a report with the Denver Police Department. Police said they couldn’t find the report, but if it had just been filed within the past few hours, it wouldn’t be in the system yet.
