A few days ago we wrote about a South Carolina pub that decided to insult gun owners by posting the above sign on it’s window. We, along with a few other pro-gun websites, linked to the pub’s Yelp page since the business does not have a website. Well, apparently the business was tired of all the negative reviews from gun owners and decided to ask (or pay) Yelp to remove any negative comments that came from pro-gun supporters.
Backstreets Pub and Grill perhaps was not informed that gun owners are some of the most organized and pro-active people on earth, so this sign was like an open invitation to use their Yelp page as a reply to the insulting sign.
The owner of the pub must have seen this negative feedback on Yelp as a threat to his business and some action has been taken to remove some of the comments and ratings that resulted from the pub’s actions to insult its customers.
One of the Thetruthaboutguns.com readers got this email sent to him after posting his comments on the Yelp page:

This is what the the pub’s Yelp page looks like now. It was down to a 1 star rating with several pro-gun pictures being added to the page. So as long as the reviews are about “customer experiences with the business” it seems Yelp is ok with it.
