Jealous girlfriend contacts TikTok user over 'flirty' Yelp review she left for her waiter boyfriend

A TikTok who posted a positive Yelp review for a waiter was left speechless after she was contacted by his girlfriend just 20 minutes later.

After eating out with friends at a restaurant, Antonia, from Wisconsin, put a jokey post on the review site at the request of the waiter, Ira, writing: 'My King, Love you!' 

Less than half an hour later, she received a message from the woman via the review app accusing her being 'inappropriate' and questioning if her boyfriend had been  'flirting'.

Antonia posted a video explaining the bizarre exchange to TikTok, which already has over 35,000 views and sparked a fierce debate in the comments with some saying it was a 'red flag', while others took the girlfriend's side.

Flirty: A TikTok user named Antonia left a positive Yelp review for a waiter but was left speechless after she was contacted by the waiter's girlfriend just twenty minutes later

In the clip, Antonia speaks to the camera saying: 'So we were all just at a restaurant and the waiter asked all of us to write a review on Yelp and mention his name in it.

'So I did, it was pretty funny, I wrote 'Thank you, Ira our king'. But then I get a message on Yelp twenty minutes later.'

She shared a screenshot of the review she left for the waiter writing: 'Love the atmosphere. Pretty good drinks, nice food menu. Ira? My king. Love you. Xoxo'

The waiter's girlfriend replied to her review on the app and asked her to remove or edit the review, writing:  'I saw your review for my boyfriend Ira and I don't really appreciate what you said calling him your king etc.

The girlfriend reached out to the woman over the review app accusing her being 'inappropriate' and questioned if her boyfriend was 'flirting' saying that she 'would like to know'

Antonia posted a video explaining the bizarre exchange to TikTok on May 7, which already has over 35,000 views, and sparked a fierce debate in the comments with some saying it was a major 'red flag', while others took the girlfriend's side

'I felt like it was inappropriate and a comment about his services would have sufficed.

'I don't know if he gave you some kind of impression or was flirting etc but I'd like to know.

'If not, then if you don't mind editing the review or writing a new one that would be great. Thank you.' 

Antonia assured the girlfriend that they were not flirting, telling her there was 'nothing to worry about' because the waiters were simply having a competition to see who could get the most Yelp reviews that night.

The girlfriend then apologized, telling her to enjoy her night, saying: 'It wasn't about writing one [a review], it's about how it was written and perceived.

'But if it's nothing, I apologize and enjoy the rest of your night.'

In the video, Antonia said: 'This is the rest of our conversation, I didn't want to be like you're f*****g crazy.

'Imagine going on Yelp to look at your boyfriend's restaurant and messaging someone from a review within 20 minutes.'

People flocked to the comments to give their opinions on the girlfriend's behaviour with one user writing: 'TWENTY MINUTES LATER?! Does she get alerts for Yelp reviews at the restaurant he works at or something?' 

Another wrote: 'Tell me your girlfriend doesn't trust you without telling me your girlfriend doesn't trust you.'

However, while some called the girlfriend's actions a 'red flag', they also called out the 'flirty' nature of the Yelp review saying they can understand why she felt 'insecure'.

One TikTok user named Kristiana wrote: 'Her behavior is a red flag but that review is a bit odd too.'

And one woman named Kristen defended the waiter's girlfriend saying that Antonia's review was 'pretty flirty' and she wasn't crazy to feel insecure about it.

She wrote: 'I mean, your review was pretty flirty. Is she crazy for feeling a little insecure about that? No. Is she crazy for messaging you? Quite possibly.'
