The Bold Italic is reporting on a film maker that is attempting to tell the Yelp is a bully story via a documentary.
Yelp gets zero stars in an upcoming documentary by local filmmaker Kaylie Milliken. Her film, Billion Dollar Bully (which is halfway done, according to the International Business Times) focuses on complaints from restaurant owners about Yelp’s business practices.
The doc contains interviews with business owners and lawyers who believe their ratings and those of their clients were affected by how much they were advertising — an allegation that, as SFist points out, Yelp vehemently denies.
The release date has not been set. But Bold Italic reports that the filmmaker, Kaylie Miliken plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money to finish the product.Yelp - The Story that Won't Die by Mike Blumenthal
