This happened to bar/restaurant right near me. I go there a quite often- best bar food in town. It's a dive- only locals go.
Well two months ago they had a PR nightmare. After a Panthers game, a disabled Marine (amputee) came to the bar wearing a Cowboys jersey. Needless to say, some drunk loser mouthed off to the Vet and things went south.
The manager had to stop it and asked the Vet's party to leave and then kicked out the drunk.
Two days later it was all over the news- "Local pub refuses to serve double amputee Veteran". It went viral within a few hours. The pub had to delete their FB page. They received death threats- so they had to take the phone off the hook.
Hundreds of people went to their Yelp page (and G+L) and wrote scathing reviews.
Long story short- a few weeks later when the mob moved on, the Yelp reviews were deleted and filtered. Now it's back to pre-sh*t storm... with a few negative reviews still published.
