Online travel and restaurant review company TripAdvisor is making a major statement in the national discussion on combatting sexual assault with a rollout of a new feature aimed at pinpointing businesses where sexual assault has been reported.
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. "These badges are meant to be informative, not punitive", he told the paper. The company, through a committee, will now make decisions through TripAdvisor community comments and news reports about incidents. Love sent a letter to the company's CEO on Wednesday, accusing TripAdvisor of refusing to protect people and only being "concerned with their own growth and earnings", according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
