Jordan Clarkson selfless act helps restore SLC Filipino food truck vandalized with racist graffiti

The family that owns World Famous Yum Yum Food Truck in Layton is feeling the love from neighbors, local politicians and Utah Jazz player Jordan Clarkson in the wake of racist vandalism. “It feels so good that so many people care,” said head chef Ben Pierce. The Filipino food truck was spray-painted with anti-Asian messages sometime between 2 a.m. and 7 a.m. on Sunday, according to Layton Police Lt. Travis Lyman.  “The whole neighborhood basically stopped by the house,” said Pierce. “Even on Sunday, everyone was already coming out and apologizing for someone else.” Other businesses, members of the city council and Mayor Joy Petro reached out, too, Pierce said. Utah Jazz player Jordan Clarkson, who is Filipino-American, and print shop Identity Graphx are teaming up to restore the truck. Clarkson said on Twitter that it hurt him deeply to see that the truck was vandalized. He said he knows the pain that hateful language and racism cause.
