Last weekend yet another uptight ignoramus joined the ranks of the infamous “BBQ Becky,” “Permit Patty,” and “Cornerstore Caroline” all of whom gained viral internet exposure for their overreactions and police complaints that could be considered racially motivated.
In a recent viral video, a woman now-dubbed “Taco Truck Tammy” threatens to call Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on a taco truck in her neighborhood.
The incident was recorded in Dallas by the food truck operator Claudia Lopez who says she had a permit to operate in the area.
Lopez uploaded the 48-second video to YouTube with the caption, “racist woman talking about how she gonna call ICE ON US FOR SELLING FOOD IN DALLAS WHEN WE HAVE A PERMIT.”
The video shows “Taco Truck Tammy” holding up her phone to film the truck while asking Lopez to move. After someone with Lopez agrees to move the truck, the woman walks back toward her front door and holds her phone up again.
At this point, one of Lopez’s coworkers starts speaking Spanish and “Tammy” responds by threatening to call ICE.
“Okay, baby girl. Vámonos,” she says to Lopez. “I’ll call ICE.”
“I’m not your baby girl,” Lopez responds. “Okay, call ICE. Call them. Okay? You can call them. Call them right now.”
At the end of the footage, the woman can be seen standing on her front steps phone still in hand.
Since posting, Lopez’s video has garnered more than 11,000 views on YouTube and more than six million views on Twitter.

And people were not fans of “Taco Truck Tammy”.
Someone needs to call ICE for the sorry state of her yard. Also, buyers beware, that’s a bad karma – bad juju house.

Just another hater. She wanted taquitos pronto couldn’t get any and flipped out.
They possess a permit so what was the problem besides that nasty looking inside-out shirt and her neck?
They should’ve squirted some Tapatío in her face. It would’ve improved her personality. pic.twitter.com/QQjB19bhw9

It’s people like Taco Truck Tammy who kept us from having a taco truck on every corner.

Several even pointed out that her shirt was on inside out.
They should’ve call the Fashion police on her. pic.twitter.com/JBgeUsOJIm

She wears her shirt that way 7 days then turns it inside out, this gives her 7 more days,,, does the same shit with her socks. The storage container is full of her life long rejections, dead personalities, ex husbands and other minorities she called ICE on. Skankasaurus.

While others couldn’t comprehend anyone getting upset about a taco truck sitting in front of their house.
So… this appears to be the only living person ever who ISN’T excited beyond belief that a taco truck is outside her house. I’m trying to imagine how happy (and fat) I would be if they drove around neighborhoods where I live. Why can’t she appreciate her luck?

A person fighting a taco truck is no Texan. She needs to be on her way.
