WAYNESVILLE, N.C. — The passenger-side door panels of Andrew Windham-Harris’ Jeep Cherokee are clean of the anti-gay slur he says somebody spray-painted on Saturday night.

WLOS reported that Windham-Harris, who is openly gay and married his partner earlier this month, believes whoever did it knew it was his car.

“It about tore my heart out,” Windham-Harris said.

It happened between 11:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. Saturday night into Sunday morning. It was dark, but Windham-Harris had been called into work at a local takeout restaurant in Haywood County just outside Waynesville.

He had parked his Jeep in the back on one side of the restaurant. Two other cars, he said, were already parked there.
