Love claimed she had been raped by a security guard at a resort in Mexico in 2010 and had posted at that time about the alleged crime on TripAdvisor. TripAdvisor later issued a public apology to Love.

These badges are only temporary and last for a three-month period.
The rep told The News the warnings will remain on the TripAdvisor site "for up to 3 months", though they reserve the right to keep the badge up longer if new reports come in or the issues persist.

"As with any product development in the Internet industry, there will always be continued iterations as we work to improve how we provide travel information to consumers", he added. The company did an inventory of reviews posted in the previous year and found "thousand of issues come up about health and safety and discrimination", he said.
