Celeb Duo Stuns NYC Protesters This Weekend

December 8, 2014 by staff 

Celeb Duo Stuns NYC Protesters This Weekend, Musician John Legend and his wife, model Chrissy Teigen, have come out to vocally support the protesters in New York, and now it appears they are putting up their own money to prove it.

Protesters have been demonstrating in the streets of New York city for days now, voicing their opposition to the Eric Garner and Ferguson, Mo. Grand Jury decisions. To feed the hungry protesters, it has been reported that Legend and Teigen hired a slew of food trucks to pass out meals to demonstrators and New York City’s homeless on Sunday.

News aggregator Bipartisan Report tweeted a photo of the trucks with the caption, “BREAKING: #johnlegend pays for a food truck in Lincoln sq to feed #EricGarner supporters before the #NYC protest”
