Amy's Baking Company Goes Nuts on Facebook, Claim They Were Hacked

from Kitchen Nightmares: Amy's Baking Company Goes Nuts on Facebook, Claim They Were Hacked | E! Online

Quote:
Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, Ariz. subscribes to the philosophy, "The customer is not always right." Actually, the customer is never right.
The restaurant—run by Amy and Samy Bouzaglo—was featured on last week's episode of Kitchen Nightmares and was the first time chef Gordan Ramsay quit on a couple ("Because they are incapable of listening," Ramsay explained).
...
But Amy and Samy aren't going to let reviewers be right either, dammit!
"You people are all s--t. Yelp s--t, Reddits s--t. Every s--t. Come to here, I will f--king show you all," one posting on the company's Facebook rants.
They are currently trying to publicise another facebook page as their 'real' one. This article is not very long so also see ... oh hell, just google "amy's baking company" and take your pick.

I've never seen Gordon Ramsay look so bewildered. *snort* That show was epic.

I lol'd so hard at the gangster scared to tell his wife her cooking was being rejected by ... well pretty much everybody.

Its.... its such a train wreck, I cant stop watching.
At first I thought maybe they were actors so the Ramsey ratings would go up, but they have been in Scottsdale for a while, telling dissatisfied customers they dont know anything about food!
Gah and they have had a turnover of 100 employees this year? Can you imagine?
I'm sorry, if you ASK Chef Ramsey to come in to help your failing business and he tells you your food is bad, and what you're doing wrong, wth is wrong with you when you argue about it?

This one is when I burst out laughing:



Hacked? Maybe - but from what I've seen in the YouTube clip, it's probably just an excuse they 'cooked up' after one of them 'posted while being drunk'.

First thought after seeing the waitress speak up for the first time:

"You know who doesn't work there any longer? Her."

Wow. I just saw the episode of "Kitchen Nightmares" about Amy's Baking Company on youtube -- and they were as INSANE and delusional in front of the cameras as they were on FB.

"Hacked"? Maybe their brains were "hacked", but not their accounts.

I liked the comment someone posted: "Westboro Baptist has a bakery?" from the picture in one of eighth's posts.

How the heck are they still in business, is I want to know? I would say "more money than sense?", but.....that's a given, even if they're bankrupt.

Gordon Ramsey will kill off his own show if restaurants stop volunteering to be on it after this. I think he should step forward and make a statement and ask people to stop harassing them.

Are you kidding? This is the best press he's had in years.

And other restaurant owners would probably be lining up to show how much better they are than these two craycrays; I doubt very much anyone is blaming Ramsay for their behaviour.

yeah, I understand that. But he really shouldn't prey on unbalanced people just to get one of his three network shows re-newed for next season.

They invited him into their failing restaurant and asked him to help fix it. That meant reading and signing agreements with the network to put up cameras and a lot of other things. They knew exactly what they were getting into.

Then they turned delusional when he told them the truth about what the real problem with their restaurant was.

I don't think they were exploited at all - I think they're stupid, greedy people who deserve to go out of business.

After learning how they treated servers and about their taking tips I wouldn't step foot near their restaurant. Regardless of how "great" a chef she thinks she is.

His company chose which footage to release to the world. The didn't have to release any footage at all since Ramsey never started the makeover.

The woman is obviously emotionally unbalanced . Yes, she owes Katy an apology for firing her and making her cry, but the un-ending Reddit attack seems a bit much for her sins.

Ramsey may be so insulated that he may not even be aware of the shitstorm his footage directed as those people.

Blady, honestly, why are you defending these assholes? This needed to come out on camera. It could have been a nice wake up call (looking at yourself acting the fool on TV usually is), but these FB posts show that they're just not meant for the restaurant business.

Besides, crazy can never be contained forever. If not Ramsey, we'd find out some other way.

And HE owes every employee who's tip he took and apology. Oh and how about the 100 other people they fired?

The woman is not emotionally unbalanced she's an entitled greedy bitch who's delusional about her abilities as a chef.

Thread Title of the Week 
They have a history of 'defending' themselves on the internet, they created and continue to create the mess they are in, if you run a business and get a bad review there are only 2 options

ignore it

bullshit with 'sorry you feel that way, i hope you will try blah blah blah'

then there are no trolls to feed

There have been so many people on Kitchen Nightmares I would have personally walked away from that Gordon found the strength to try to help, I've often wondered if there was anyone who would be a big enough asshole that he'd throw his hands up at them.

No, the production team didn't need to air this episode, but I'm glad they did. Someone as delusional as that woman needs to be exposed to reality. Especially when its the reality she's made for herself.
