Elon Musk fans are fuming at JPMorgan and are venting their anger on the company's Yelp page to prove it.

The JPMorgan Yelp page was temporarily disabled as Tesla fans bombarded it with one-star reviews. This barrage was in response to Elon Musk having said he’d give JPMorgan a one-star review if it didn’t drop its lawsuit against Tesla. The bank has sued Tesla over its 2018 bid to take the company private.

Taking their lead from the techno king himself, Tesla fans plastered the bank’s Yelp page with a stream of one-star reviews on Monday over the bank’s $162 million lawsuits against the electric vehicle maker.

The bank claims that Tesla breached a contract related to stock warrants it held after Musk’s 2018 tweet “funding secured” to take Tesla private. 

Musk’s comments to The Wall Street Journal spewed a barrage of bad ratings about the lawsuit.

“If JPM doesn’t withdraw their lawsuit, I will give them a one-star review on Yelp,” the tech giant’s CEO told the Journal. “This is my final warning!”

And on Tuesday morning, JPMorgan’s Yelp page had multiple negative reviews, including: 

  • “JP Morgan Sucks from a Tesla owner.”
  • “That’s what you get for playing with Elon.”
  • “They got my order wrong. I wanted curly fries.”
  • “One star only for their frivolous lawsuits against their business partners, particularly against Tesla.”
  • “I’m here for Tesla, obviously. Give you one star for suing the company.”

Some of the Tesla-related ratings managed their way past Yelp’s defenses into the recommended reviews. Yelp said, later Tuesday, posting new reviews of the bank was disabled. 

A company spokesperson said in a statement, “Yelp’s mission is connecting consumers with great local businesses by providing them access to useful and reliable information.”

In addition, the Yelp spokesperson said the company invests in technology and human moderation to restrict misinformation on its platform. Automated software recommendations drive the approach to this mitigation, and reports by Yelp’s community of business owners and users, Consumer Alerts, and human moderation. 

Yelp is very aggressive and successful at identifying and weeding unreliable reviews, as observed by academics, economists, industry pundits, the media, and regulators.

Musk did not speak publicly about the review bombing. Instead, Musk responded to a parody tweet of a one-star Yelp review of JPMorgan that says, “Used to come here. Service has degraded. The place is just living off its name. Doesn’t accept DOGE.” The Twitter user captioned the image, “Elon’s Yelp review of JPMorgan is lit.”

Musk responded with emojis of fire and laughter.
