    A food truck controversy is brewing in the District. The dispute has nothing to do with the food. It's about what the cooks on a truck are wearing. News4's Richard Jordan has our report. (Published Wednesday, May 16, 2012)

    Food trucks are common in D.C. these days, but one is feeling the heat after complaints were posted online – complaints that have nothing to do with the food.

    The Fojol Brothers truck is one of the most popular in the city, dishing out Indian staples while wearing turbans and fake facial hair.

    One resident found the costumes offensive and posted his opinions on Facebook, which led to a petition. Organizers of the petition say they plan to deliver the signatures to the Fojol brothers once they reach 1,000.

    The food truck owners said they mean no disrespect.
