Kailua, Oahu– Kailua Businesses – Kailua General Store, Island Massage Kailua and BOSS Hawaii, created a youtube video to demonstrate what they describe as “Yelp Mafia like tactics”.

The video now at 10,000 views, recreates how YELP would work in real life at a storefront instead of online.  “We think the video really shows how damaging YELP is.  It is easy for YELP and their users not see businesses as real people.What YELP does online would not be acceptable in real life, so why do they feel it is ok to do online?  We think the video makes that point.”    said Daniela Stolfi -Tow of BOSS Hawaii.

Since creating the video Stolfi-Tow has been contacted by various media including the producer of the controversial upcoming documentary “BILLION DOLLAR BULLY”. They will be including the movie and their film as well as taking a trip to Hawaii interview the producers.

“This is a great step forward for those of us who have been trying to get YELP to make changes to their system.  They hurt businesses.  And that hurts our economy and our communities. We  hope when they see the film and our video, they will  start listening to businesses instead of fighting us.”
