Now, when a business gains attention for reports of racist conduct, Yelp will place a new Business Accused of Racist Behavior Alert on their Yelp page to inform users, along with a link to a news article where they can learn more. https://t.co/1K2bJ46uM8

What an INSANELY stupid idea –> Yelp goes WOKE, creates alert system so users can accuse businesses of ‘racist conduct’

Yelp's HQ is in San Francisco.

That says it all.

I'm done with Yelp then. Which unfortunately kinda just leaves googles as the best of a bad lot.

I’m guessing Yelp will be contacting flagged businesses with an offer, for a small fee of course, to remove the flag. pic.twitter.com/cmnG4ts86s

Louis Rossmann gets hit.
Got some BS reviews and a raciest mark and yelp refuses to do anything about it. The racist one even had a picture of George Floyd as it's avatar.

Yelp wrote a fake review of my business, then called 3 days after the review was made to ask if I would like to upgrade my account which would hide/remove the review. They denied the action and I was a new business at the time. When Apple decided to merge their safari search with Yelp...I was screwed.

How I know it was fake

- I'm the UK, they used American terminology to describe a fringe as a 'bang'
- They accused me directly of coming on to them sexually - I cut men's hair only and this review claimed to be a woman, I'm a guy and I'm heterosexual and I would never act so unprofessionally.
- They said they went to a local competitor to rectify my bad hair cut - the salon they mentioned is a high profile salon 40 miles away in the city.

I tried to take action, they did nothing.

I had 20-30 reviews all positive, filtered as Yelp defined them as not credible.

YELP need to go. YELP need to be sued. Set it up Louis!

Yelp is a shakedown scheme disguised as a company.

You pay them $X a month and people can see the positive reviews as well as the negative. No money, no positive reviews.
