Auto Shop Stands Up For Bullied Gay Student And Restores His Vandalized Car

This is a wonderful, heartwarming story about a local business that goes out of their way to make things right for a bullied college Student.


Jordan Addison told WDBJ-TV that his car was vandalized four times between March and May of this year and that someone even keyed “die” into the side of the vehicle because he is gay.
Addison said the lowest estimate he received to fix the car was $2,500, but that he just couldn’t afford to repair it. Some Roanoke businesses heard what happened and pitched in to fix the damage for free.
“Once I saw the vandalism that was done to it I said that’s uncalled for we’re gonna fix your car that’s the least we can do,” said Quality Auto Paint and Body’s Richard Henegar Jr.
The auto body shop repainted the car and even added in $10,000 worth of extras for Addison.
