R&B singer John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen showed their support to the NY protestor, and #EricGarner and #MikeBrown movement by purchasing a number of food trucks to feed them for free!
Check out the details below!
The protests concerning the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown are still going strong and on Sunday, singer John Legend and his food blogger and model wife Chrissy Teigen reportedly showed their support for the current movement with the purchase of a number of food trucks to feed protesters for free in New York City’s Lincoln Square.
Both Teigen and Legend have been quite quiet in this very thoughtful gesture, but Teigen did confirm with BuzzFeed News that she and her husband did, in fact, pay to feed the protesters. The pair teamed up with Operation Help or Hush, an online activist organization that rose up from Twitter following Brown’s death in Ferguson, Missouri and works to offer protesters food and other supplies needed to organize protests. Some of the food truck businesses that were on hand for Sunday’s public exercise of our First Amendment right included Milk Truck NYC and Korean barbecue’s Kimchi Taco Truck.
Major kudos go out to Legend and Teigen for their efforts. It’s always great to see that celebrities are aware of current events and will lend a helping hand when necessary!
