Exclamation Lacquer Thinner? HELP!

My main question is if lacquer thinner will hurt my factory paint job. I fell victim to a disturbing vandalistic paintjob.

Rattlecan spray paint is what it appears to be, but I don't want to hurt my clear coat in the process.

Some people...

ABSOLUTELY NO LACQUER THINNER OR ACETONE! You can use paint thinner commonly used for thinning oil based house paint, then wax immediately.
