TripAdvisor deleted warnings of rape and assault at Mexican resorts, reviewers claim

The site issued a statement of apology after more than a dozen users complained that their negative reviews had been taken down.


TripAdvisor depends on its users to generate reviews of travel destinations along with restaurants and hotels, but according to a recent report, the website has been filtering out negative comments than could in fact be of great help to future travellers.
On Wednesday, 1 November, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel published an exposé in which more than a dozen people claimed that their reviews of various Mexican resort destinations were deleted because they were in violation of the website's guidelines. These included warnings about blackouts, rapes and assault.
