    I'm Cackling At These 18 Fake Revenge Reviews That Got Debunked By The Business Owners Themselves

    I give all these customers one star.

    Here are 18 customers who tried to tear down businesses with fake reviews and got called out by the owners:

    5. This car salesperson who forgot how Google works:

    6. This free haircut finesser:

    7. This meddling ex-manager:

    8. This pissed-off Pokémon Go player:

    9. This hater who got terminated by Schwarzenegger:

    10. This embellishment with deadly consequences:
