Tran operates the Tran Nhat Phong (TNP) YouTube channel which has more than 221,000 subscribers. He also has a website called

Peaceful protests across the U.S. are being held following the murder of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man who was killed by police officers in Minneapolis in late May.

Protesters are also demanding justice for other victims, including Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery and several others.

For the looters and rioters, Tran closed, “We are ready.”
