Update 11:57 a.m.: A Yelp spokesperson says the company isn't actually suing South Park and Comedy Central, and reports of the news came from a hoax site, which Google News briefly attributed to NBC. "We have no interest in legal action against the fantastic team that makes the South Park magic happen," the spokesperson told Eater. Our original article appears below.

Yelp is not happy about the recent South Park episode, "You're Not Yelping," which compares the website's reviewers to ISIS. The company is so unhappy, in fact, that it has filed a $10 million lawsuit against South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker and Comedy Central on Wednesday.
