Images of a vehicle in Hobart with a racist sticker on its windshield have circulated on social media, prompting the state government to encourage anyone affected by it to lodge a complaint with the Anti-Discrimination Commission.
The vehicle in question was parked on Elizabeth Street in Hobart's CBD on Saturday and photos of it were subsequently posted to Facebook and Twitter.

The sticker on the windshield included a racial epithet and referenced the white supremacist organisation the Ku Klux Klan.
It's understood Tasmania Police is investigating the matter.
"The government strongly condemns any form of discrimination and strongly encourages a complaint to the Anti-Discrimination Commissioner by any affected person," a state government spokesperson said.
Tasmanian Greens leader Cassy O'Connor denounced the content of the sticker on Twitter, describing it as "hateful and unlawful".
A different car with the same sticker on its rear windshield was photographed at New Norfolk last year.
