Thousands of people have donated more than 80k to an online campaign launched this weekend in support of a California hot dog vendor ticketed Saturday by a U.C. Berkeley police officer, who also took money from the man’s wallet.
Flores launched the GoFundMe campaign on Sunday, which claims to be on behalf of the hot dog vendor, since identified as Beto Matias.
All funds will be going to Beto aka “Juan the Hotdog Street Vendor” (minus the fees that GoFundMe charges). He is planning to buy a food truck with the money raised.
