CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The following statement is on behalf of Beall Research:
On August 28th, a person named Bruce Alan Beal tweeted a hateful comment about Hurricane Harvey and suggested that the people of Texas were welcome to drown. His company was named Beal Research. Unfortunately, when people typed in ‘Beal Research,’ another company came up with a similar spelling: Beall Research (spelled with 2 L’s). That company was immediately inundated with phone calls, vicious emails and fake reviews on Google.
“We received threats of violence, threats to shut our business down and then the hate campaign turned to Google reviews,” stated Anne E. Beall (CEO) of Beall Research. “People started posting fake reviews about us saying that we were an awful company and that the owner was rude and hateful. Beall Research has no affiliation with Bruce Alan Beal. He does not work for this company and we do not condone this tweet in any way. Beall Research supports all efforts to help victims of this recent tragedy. We stand with Texas.”
