Yelp launches alert that identifies businesses accused of racism

Yelp launches alert that identifies businesses accused of racism

CLOSE

Americans are increasingly using Yelp to sound the alarm after encountering racist practices at businesses across the country. 

In the months following George Floyd’s death under the knee of a police officer, an increasing number of reviewers have warned fellow users of racist conduct at local businesses, Yelp says. 

On Thursday, the platform announced plans to pick up where watchdog users left off with the launch of a consumer alert that flags businesses accused of racist behavior. The move is meant to give patrons “reliable” and actionable information while holding business owners accountable for their actions, the platform says. 

“Now more than ever, consumers are increasingly conscious of the types of businesses they patronize and support. They are ‘voting with their dollars,’ so to speak,” said Noorie Malik, Yelp’s vice president of user operations.  “We needed a better solution to inform consumers about businesses allegedly associated with egregious, racially-charged actions to help people feel comfortable patronizing a business.”

Yelp’s new “Business Accused of Racist Behavior Alert” is meant to serve innocent business owners and Yelp users alike, the app says. On one hand, it protects businesses from an avalanche of angry artificial reviews and it lets consumers know what they might be up against before patronizing a store.

This type of scenario played out in 2012 after a pizza parlor owner hugged President Obama igniting social responses from people on both sides of the aisle. Some posted one-star reviews on the restaurant’s page attacking the owner. Others
