    ANN ARBOR, Mich. (WJBK) - An Ann Arbor bar that's meant to be a safe area for the LGBT community was vandalized Thursday night but clients as well as workers state it's not that $300 in damages that was done that's problematic. They say they really feel broken.

    The flags are flying once more and service is back to normal at Aut Bar in Ann Arbor. The gay bar\/restaurant was ruined early Friday morning. Keith Orr says somebody tore the flags, lights, streams, and also fascia board below his bar at some point after it closed at 2 a.m.

    \" The key objective of the Aut bar is to supply a safe room for the LGBT community that's greater on the goal listing than food or beverage also,\" Orr claimed. \"When something like that happens it certainly seems like an attack not just on us however on an area. \"

    It's vague that vandalized Aut bar, yet there's little supposition among the proprietors as well as customers about what motivated the person or persons liable.

    \" At specific times in our background for various factor people have felt like they can come out with that ugliness with immunity as well as I seem like Trump has done that to our nation,\" Orr claimed.

    Aut isn't the only company that's been targeted. There have actually been other acts of vandalism and hazards versus ethnic minorities in Ann Arbor lately. Someone spray repainted swastikas at a neighborhood skate park, police claim young adults spray repainted racial slurs on the running track at Concordia College, as well as someone contacted a bomb threat at the Jewish Household Solutions facility of Washtenaw Region.

    Customers, like Ann as well as Rub Rodgers, ended up in droves Friday to support Aut Bar.

    \" I do not know why there's a lot hate on the planet however I think if we took a minute to understand the people around us even more we would certainly realize we have a whole lot even more resemblances than you may assume,\" Andrea McAuliffe stated.

    Ann Arbor State Rep. Yousef Rahbi began a GoFundMe campaign for Aut Bar which since Friday evening raised more than $2,600. Orr prepares to add the added funds to the LGBT community.

    \" We'll be giving away anything over and also past the real fixings to a number of LGBT institutions right below on the yard,\" Orr stated.
