A restaurant owner in Arizona has says he decided to ban Yelpers at his restaurant after being inspired by a recent episode of the television show South Park.
Aric Mussman, who owns the Vero Amore restaurants, saw the episode which joked about Yelpers who think they’re real restaurant critics before he decided to hang a “No Yelpers” sign in both of his restaurants.
Speaking to KGUN9-TV, Mussman said: "They want the notoriety. You earn badges for reviews they earn online acclaim. That's where their friends are and they feel like this self-entitled thing that they can bash us. People can say whatever they want without any fact checking."
Mussman’s business has a four star rating on the Yelp website but he says this only obligates to make a stance, "Our reviews are great and that's why I want to be one of the people to stand up and say something.” In a further reponse posted on our own Facebook wall, Mussman said:
