John Legend and Chrissy Teigen Paid for Food Trucks to Feed Protestors
After the two grand jury decisions not to indict the officers that shot and killed Michael Brown and held Eric Garner in a fatal chokehold, protestors took to the streets all over the country. In New York, where the Eric Garner incident took place, protestors are still out demonstrating in full-force, demanding justice for the violent, and what some are calling, racially-charged occurrence. But protestors have to eat, and that’s where John Legend comes in. The music icon and his supermodel wife, Chrissy Teigen, have hired a fleet of food trucks to feed the protestors in Lincoln Square for free, where many protestors have been camped out for days.
To be clear, the superstar couple has not taken direct credit for their help, but they have retweeted the information, and Teigen thanked the Kimchi Taco truck for being a part of the movement. According to ABC News, Legend’s rep has also confirmed that the duo is behind the generous offer. It looks like in addition to the Kimchi Taco truck, Nuchas Empanadas is also giving out food to protestors.
