Yelp Will Alert Users Of Businesses Accused Of Racist Behavior


If you intend  to only support businesses that share the same values as you? Yelp can help. Yelp is adding an alert for businesses that have been accused of racism towards customers.
The crowd-sourced review app is adding a feature that allows users to flag “overtly racist actions” at an establishment, which includes “using racist language or symbols.”
Each claim will be verified, says Yelp’s VP for user operations, to ensure that reviews are based on personal experiences with the business.
“We don’t allow people to leave reviews based on media reports because it can artificially inflate or deflate a business’s star rating,” writes Noorie Malik in a blog post.
