An American has been sued by an island resort in Thailand over a negative TripAdvisor review and could face up to two years in prison if found guilty. According to the review Barnes posted, he encountered "unfriendly staff" who "act like they don't want anyone here".

"We chose to file a complaint to serve as a deterrent, as we understood he may continue to write negative reviews for the foreseeable future," the hotel said.
