They could do a damages lawsuit that not advertising their business while pushing another with the same complaints hurts their ability to profit.I'm no legal expert either but I'm pretty sure that since TripAdvisor et al. are private companies, they can do what they want. It's still shitty virtue-signaling though.
It's a double standard sure, but if Disney doesn't pay them directly i'm not sure there is much that could be done.Is that how it works though? Isn’t it TripAdvisor’s right as a private entity to “discriminate” against once company as much as they want to?
Plus, since most of these sites have some sort of asterisk that “explains” the discrepancy between Disney and Seaworld, even if there was a case to be had, I feel like they could easily make the “captive mammals aren’t central to the Disney experience” cop-out argument and be safe anyway.
