Utah Jazz player Jordan Clarkson provided an assist after a Filipino food truck was vandalized with anti-Asian graffiti. The Guardian has teamed up with the Identity Graphx vehicle wrap store to get The World Famous Yum Yum food truck back on the road, CBS affiliate KUTV-TV reports.
The owners of the Layton, Utah food truck shared images of the graffiti, which included offensive images and swear words, on social media Sunday. World Famous Yum Yum has received a wave of support from the community, including Clarkson.
Clarkson, who is Filipino-American, took to twitter condemn vandalism.
“It hurt me deeply to see that the @yumyumasian food truck in Salt Lake was recently vandalized – I know the pain of hate language and racism. With the help of @identitygraphix, we can restore the truck and hopefully lift that of Ben and his family. spirit !! #StopAsianHate, ”Clarkson wrote.
World Famous Yum Yum unveiled the impressive new packaging on Wednesday and thanked the many who have reached out in the wake of the vandalism.
“I really can’t describe how much this means to us right now,” the truck owner wrote on Instagram. “I’m upset that in the middle of the playoffs #jordanclarkson took the time to support our food truck and get our truck wrapped.”
Even though the Jazz are currently facing the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference semifinals, Clarkson has said he will stop to eat soon.
The food truck will make its return during the Philippine Independence Day celebration on Saturday June 12 in Salt Lake City.
