The Denver Channel reports that there have been a slew of instances of vandalism involving hate speech across the country over the past week since the presidential elections. Swastikas and other forms of hate speech have been spray painted at schools and businesses across the country as thousands of others protest the election of Donald Trump.

By 11 a.m., Timmons posted that a police report had been taken and that her friends had come over and were cleaning the paint off – apparently with quite successfully, according to pictures she posted.

In an interview with Denver7, she said she assumes it was someone who knew her or at least about her. She added that she thinks the perpetrator might be someone emboldened by Trump’s election.

“Considering that it had ‘Trump’ all over my front hood, I think it’s directly related,” she said.

“Am I scared? Definitely,” Timmons added. “But if I have to change my lifestyle, it means hate wins, and hate doesn’t win. Love wins.”
