Protected Class

The CourierPost, a newspaper somewhere in New Jersey reports

Authorities are looking into whether an attack on a 5-foot-tall inflatable pink Easter bunny in the New York suburbs was bias-related.
The bunny with the big eyes and black line for a smile was left punctured and deflated in the snow-covered yard of the house where Isabel Gonzalez and her husband live in Cortlandt, N.Y.

I knew that unconstitutional (it is contra the XIV Amendment) hate crime legislation had gotten out of control, but exactly which class is protected in NJ, Inflatable, Pink or Bunny? (You can bet it ain't Easter ...)
