A Corner Brook man discovered his truck had been vandalized, with a hateful slur left on the vehicle. Jonathan Pearce, 24, was at work Thursday morning when customers began mentioning something amiss with a truck in the parking lot. Pearce went outside to see what they were talking about. It turns out a vandal had spray painted "#1 f**got" across the back and passenger side of his truck. Pearce says that he has no idea who the person was. "People have their opinions on other people and that's okay," he said. "That's the world we live in." This is the second time this week Pearce's truck has been targeted. Earlier this week, Pearce updated his Facebook status, stating that he was going to Memorial University's Grenfell Campus library. "When I came out around 9, it had been egged," he said. "I didn't think that anybody would ever follow me anywhere to do something like that. "I just passed it off as a random act."
