The world famous Yum Yum Food Truck, a Filipino company in Utah, is back on the road with the help of Filipino-American Jordan Clarkson, who plays for Utah Jazz in the NBA.
The truck became recently devastated with racist remarks and hate speech against Asians when « F * ck Ch * nks » were painted on the food truck.
Clarkson commissioned Identity Graphics to redesign the truck with the Philippine flag as the core of the design. </ "It hurt me deeply to see that Salt Lake's @yumyumasian food truck was recently vandalized – I know the pain caused by hateful language and racism," wrote Clarkson on Twitter Wednesday night.
“With the help of @identitygraphix we can restore the truck and hopefully lift the spirits of Ben and his family! #StopAsianHate. «
» I stand in solidarity with Utah’s Filipino community – love is stronger than hate! #UtahFilipino #StopAAPIHate #StopAsianHate. “
After the restoration of the truck, the Filipino owners thanked Clarkson via a Facebook post for his help and eyes to reopen the business on June 12th on the occasion of the Philippine Independence Day.
“It’s been a couple of emotional days. The love and support we have received from all of you has been deeply sincere. My family cannot thank you enough. Special thanks to Jordan Clarkson of Utah Jazz and Dan of Identity Graphics for the new We’d like to say thank you to each one in a few weeks time as we celebrate our LOVE celebration in the park and feed the community, « the post said.
