When a customer pulled his truck into Collision Masters repair shop, the entire crew fell silent.
That's because the truck was covered in spray-painted racial slurs. The employees were disgusted.
The owner of the shop, Frank Todaro, and his entire crew stopped what they were doing and immediately got to work on the customer's truck.
Todaro writes in his Facebook post that right after seeing the truck, he looked at the customer and said, "You are not leaving until I fix this!"
The employees immediately got to work and "attacked" the truck "like a pit crew" until it was finished. With the whole crew at hand, they finished the job in 30 minutes - and free of charge.
In an interview with Buffalo News, Todaro called the vandalism "disgusting."
Todaro shared the story on his business's Facebook page. It immediately blew up with over 50,000 shares, 159,000 reactions, and 8,000 comments.
Customer pulls into the shop today and literally hear crickets when all the air tools and employees stopped and shook their head in disgust on what they saw. This unfortunate customer had racist remarks with spray paint all over the vehicle. I looked at the driver and told him that "you are not leaving until I fix this!" Literally my guys dropped everything and attacked this truck like a Pit Crew and got the job done. I told the owner of the vehicle this ones on me and I wanted him to know that Buffalonians will never stand for this! Great job and many thanks to the team at Collision Masters.
People applauded Todaro's sincerity and generosity.
Todaro said that being able to help the customer, identified only as Mr. King, and take a stand against racism felt "amazing." As a result of the incident, a local anti-racism rally was held on June 15. It's heartwarming to see that even though some human beings positively suck, there are others in the community who make up for it with their kindness.
