Texas Port Bans Food Truck Because of Its Cocky Name
A spicy Korean food truck has been banned from a San Antonio port that includes an Air Force base because they deemed the truck’s name inappropriate. And what was the name in question that earned the scorn of an entire port? Well…
Yes. Cockasian. That is the name of the food truck. Cockasian. And here’s the truck in action:
The proprietors of the food truck received notice about the ban yesterday, and took to Facebook to alert people of what happened.
“It makes me sad that the spoken and written word are the most censored forms of art. CockAsian to us is word that has boundless meanings none of which are sexual or a racial slur. If any of you has any contacts at the Port you might want to let them know that you would like to see us there and I would be more than happy to discuss the basis for our name with them.”
Following that Facebook post, they were almost immediately contacted by a local newspaper and it was only a matter of time before the news spread like wildfire.
Oh, and UrbanDictionary has a definition of Cockasian up, in case you were wondering.
