Yelp’s $10M Lawsuit Against South Park a Hoax


A few days ago, people got done in by a satirical news post from NBC.com.co, which reports that online review portal Yelp has filed a $10M lawsuit against South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker due to the recent episode that made fun of Yelp reviewers. The post was picked up by a number of other sites as legitimate news, no doubt caused by the NBC.com.co URL.

Food blog Eater LA wanted to get to the bottom of things and asked Yelp, and a Yelp representative not only clarified the entire thing as just satire, but also expressed their support and fondness for the South Park creative team:

“The rumor about a Yelp lawsuit is entirely untrue and was started by a satire site that has received far too much media credibility,” a Yelp spokesperson reportedly said. “We have no interest in legal action against the fantastic team that makes the South Park magic happen.”
