We want to see reviews like these Yelp reviews featuring boobs. We don’t want to see fake reviews featuring some negative things about a restaurant that kicked off when the customer themselves put their own hair in their own plate of food. Well, that’s exactly what occurred in a restaurant in Australia.
The incident happened this past weekend at Casa Nostra Ristorante, which is an Italian restaurant in Brisbane. Video shows a customer intentionally put her own gross hair in her plate of food, so she wouldn’t have to pay the bill. After this, the woman actually tried to blackmail the eatery by threatening to write a bad review on TripAdvisor if she didn’t get the meal free
But her plan didn’t exactly work out, because the eatery’s co-owner explained that the hair didn’t match any of her employees since they all have “short dark trimmed hair,” and the hair in question was a strand of dirty blonde curly hair. I guess you can call this #Hairgate.
“We all have short dark trimmed hair, and this was a strand of dirty blonde curly hair,” Biuso said. “The pair threatened to post a bad review [on TripAdvisor] if the meal wasn’t taken off the bill.” Well guess what? The woman didn’t get her free meal, so she went ahead and wrote the bad review.
And this idiot was actually caught on tape, too.
Check it out below thanks to the restaurant’s Instagram.
The garbage review was eventually removed by TripAdvisor.
Here’s what TripAdvisor had to say about the incident.
“We take very seriously any allegations of blackmail or threatening behavior by guests against business owners.
It is absolutely against the terms and spirit of our site to use TripAdvisor’s name to try and claim discounts, compensation or freebies that would not be available to other guests. We strongly encourage owners who have experienced blackmail to proactively report such threats before a corresponding review is submitted by using our free Management Centre.
When reporting such threats, we advise owners to provide as much information as possible to aid the investigation efforts of our fraud detection team. They will then be able to take action to stop those reviews from ever reaching the site.”
