acebook and Yelp ratings are plummeting for BluFin Sushi in Grosse Pointe Farms after a group of black women say they were mistreated while at the restaurant. The Facebook Live video of the incident’s aftermath set off a social media firestorm calling for a boycott of the restaurant and prompting BluFin to temporarily close its doors on Sunday and delete its Facebook page.
