Amy's Baking Company Reacts to Social Media Post-Gordon Ramsay Walkout
Woah, someone needs to calm down and get off Facebook. Amy's Baking Company, which made headlines thanks to a recent Kitchen Nightmares episode where Gordon Ramsay walked out on the team, has gone to Facebook to react to the media backlash, Eater notes, and the results aren't pretty.
The husband-and-wife team of Amy and Samy Bouzaglo, who proved too delusional to have Ramsay save their Scottsdale, Ariz., restaurant, are freaking out on Facebook over Reddit and Yelp comments, posting status updates in all caps calling online reviewers all sorts of names. Sample posts include "I AM WONDER WOMAN. I AM A GREAT CHEF, A GREAT WIFE, AND A GREAT MOM TO MY KIDS. AND WE WILL BE PARENTS TO A HUMAN KID, ONE DAY TO. WE WILL SHOW ALL OF YOU," as well as "You are all little punks. Nothing. you are all nothing. We are laughing at you. All of you, just fools. We have God on our side, you just have your sites."
It would all seem like a parody, unless you actually watched the two episodes posted on YouTube. Samy has also written that he is noting the names of posters, promising that, "We will be pursuing action against you legaly [sic], and against reddit and yelp, for this plot you have come together on. you are all just punks."
The show revealed that not only did Amy's Baking Company owners use frozen raviolis instead of fresh-made ones, but also took waitresses' tips and had busboys wash their car. Right after the show aired, the owners responded with a statement on Facebook, saying, "We do not, nor have we ever stolen or taken any of our servers ,waitresses, or waiters tips at Amy’s Baking Company. We pay our staff members anywhere between $8.00 to $14.00 per hour to ensure that at the end of the week regardless of it being busy or not, that they go home with money and a well paid paycheck. As do many other restaurants. They are aware of this when they are hired." And while that seemed like a normal post, it all just went downhill from there.
