The latest comments on Big Apple Pizza’s Yelp page aren’t about anchovies.
After President Obama stopped by and received a bear hug from owner Scott Van Nuzer, comments started being posted on the pizza shop’s page on Yelp, a site for posting reviews of local businesses. With two 5-star reviews dating back to 2009, Big Apple Pizza’s overall rating took a dive with new comments – from people living much further than the Fort Pierce, Fla., pizzeria will likely deliver – awarding 1 out of 5 stars.
Mike A, Murrietta, Calif., who awarded 1 star:
Well.. I’d eat there but after seeing the owner grab our leftist President I felt compelled to disrespect his establishment as much as the President disrespects our constitution. Shame on you Scott Van Duzer for thumbing your nose at all the small business owners this President has disrespected for the last four years. I guess you DIDN’T BUILD IT!
I hope you’re prepared for many more Yelps like this!!! Maybe you weren’t thinking, or maybe you are the only liberal pro Obama business owner, who knows.. but you won’t get mine or anyone else’s business for your treachery.
Andrew B, Meza, Ariz., who awards 1 star:
Owner states he is a Republican that supports Obama.
Greg S., Cottonwood, Ariz., who awarded 1 star:
Talk about committing business suicide. After picking up Obama, your books are gonna be in the red pretty soon. Not too smart.
Yet they were quickly outnumbered by positive Yelp comments – also originating far from Florida – from people awarding five stars, and bringing the shop’s overall rating back up. Among them:
Nathan C of Cambridge, Mass., gave five stars:
Simply to balance out the idiots, like Mike A., who are reviewing a place because the owner was able to not hate someone that they did.
