Elon Musk supporters are dissatisfied with JP Morgan right now and they’ve resorted to Yelp to express their displeasure. They have spammed JP Morgan’s yelp page. Tesla enthusiasts, encouraged by the techno king himself, bombarded the US’ largest bank’s Yelp page on Monday with spam of one-star reviews in response to the bank’s $162 million lawsuits against the electric vehicle maker.
Tesla, according to the bank however, violated a contract about stock warrants it owned after Musk tweeted in 2018 that he had “financing secured” to take Tesla private. Musk’s statements on the case to The Wall Street Journal that day sparked the barrage of negative ratings. “If JPM doesn’t withdraw their lawsuit, I will give them a one-star review on Yelp,” the CEO tells the Journal. “This is my final warning!” Some of the negative reviews on JP Morgan’s page include:
- “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 u one star for suing the company.

“Yelp’s mission is certainly to connect consumers with great local businesses. By giving them access to reliable and useful information,” a company spokesperson said in a statement. “Consumer trust is our top priority, which is why we take significant measures to maintain the integrity and quality of the content on our site. Yelp invests in both technology and human moderation to mitigate misinformation on our platform.” Elon Musk has not officially commented anything on the spamming but has replied to a meme.
“We have however provided Tesla multiple opportunities to fulfill its contractual obligations, so, unfortunately, they have forced this issue into litigation,” JPMorgan tells the Wall Street Journal
