YELP* CEO Jeremy Stoppelman: We WILL NOT Expand Our Company To Indiana – #BoycottIndiana

YELP BOYCOTT

 

It is unconscionable to imagine that Yelp would create, maintain, or expand a significant business presence in any state that encouraged discrimination by businesses against our employees, or consumers at large. I encourage states that are considering passing laws like the one rejected by Arizona or adopted by Indiana to reconsider and abandon these discriminatory actions. (We’re looking at you, Arkansas.) I hope that in the future the legislatures in the nineteen states that have these laws on the books will reconsider their actions. In the mean time, Yelp will make every effort to expand its corporate presence only in states that do not have these laws allowing for discrimination on the books. I also hope that other companies will draw a similar line in the sand for equality on behalf of their employees and the greater public to persuade legislators to do the right thing and stop or rescind these harmful laws. – YELP* CEO Jeremy Stoppelman whose company went public in 2012 and says it will grosses roughly $575M this year.

Can I give Yelp a good review on Yelp?!

YELPERS Fight Back Against Bigoted Big (No Gays Allowed) Earl’s Restaurant and Bait Shop With Some Very Creative Reviews

Big Earl 3

A few days ago it became BIG news that some redneck bigots in the small podunk town of Piittsburg, Texas, (at a restaurant/bait house/country store called Big Earl’s, no less) told a gay couple not to come back because apparently they were touching legs, and apparently that’s not acceptable couples’ behavior especially and only if you are gay with the waitress (who happens to be Big Earl’s daughter) actually told the men “we don’t like fags here.

Well just to prove that there are all types of fun and creative protests.  All normal, non-rednecks have taken to YELP and have posted some very creative reviews of BIG Earl’s that essentially turns it into a gay bar.
