Yelp Gets in Business of Social Justice Shaming, Will Out ‘Racist’ Restaurants


Yelp is now allowing consumers to label businesses as racist. On Thursday, the company announced the new program it is rolling out that flags any business “accused of racist behavior.” Whenever a business “gains attention for reports of racist conduct,” Yelp will now tag them with a label that says “Business Accused of Racist Behavior Alert” on the business’ Yelp page. “Today, we’re announcing a new consumer alert to stand against racism. In the last few months, we’ve seen that there is a clear need to warn consumers about businesses associated with egregious, racially-charged actions to help people make more informed spending decisions,” Yelp announced on its official Twitter account.
