Last week, a Filipino food truck in Northern Utah, World Famous Yum Yum Truck, was vandalized with anti-Asian slurs and hateful graffiti.
“I really can’t believe that some people can be so mean. My family works so hard, sometimes 12 hours a day and we didn’t expect to come home to this,” posted Yum Yum Food Truck on their Instagram page earlier this week.
Utah Jazz star and the NBA’s reigning Sixth Man of the Year, Jordan Clarkson got wind of the situation and decided to give his most important assist this season by lending a hand to help restore the truck with a new paint job. Clarkson, who is Filipino-American and holds dual citizenship in America and the Philippines, came to the rescue along with Layton Mayor Joy Petro, city council members, and Identity Graphix to restore the truck with a brand new paint job.
