Milano Market, Forest Whitaker, and Yelp

Just saw this article on Forest Whitaker being patted down at Milano Market in Manhattan, and I couldn't help it, but the first thing I thought of was how many people had trashed the place on Yelp, which has happened several times recently for other places:

I have never been to this place, but find it hard to understand why everyone there should be labeled a racist because of one employee's misdeeds, and then for people to jump on Yelp to try to "bring the place down."

    Even worse, people are posting these "reviews" to a different place with the same name as well.

      stunningly poor judgement by one employee does not equal a racist establishment. I think the owner did the right thing by firing that employee... and it would have been the correct thing to do even if the offended patron wasn't famous.
