  • The owner of Corner 17, an Asian restaurant in St. Louis, says her restaurant was targeted with a negative review from an influencer in retaliation for denying his request for a collaboration.
  • Antonio Malik (@antonio_eats_la) shared the review on his Instagram Stories, describing his meals at the restaurant as “the worst dumplings ever” and claiming that they “taste like ass.”
  • The restaurant’s Instagram account posted alleged screenshots of the conversation that preceded the review, which appear to show Malik requesting $100 off his meal in exchange for recording and sharing a video of it to his page, which the restaurant politely declined.
  • “An intentionally bad write-up from a large following influencer because of our refusal to accept their collaboration is unprofessional and such a hostile manner can simply ruin their businesses,” the owner wrote in the caption.
  • Malik has since removed the posts and made his Instagram account private.
