Amy’s Baking Company, a restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona, gained nationwide fame last year after its owners became known for the worst attitude ever on Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares. The owners, Amy and Samy Bouzaglo, were seen on the show verbally assaulting customers and employees, and after their subsequent harsh and profanity-laced responses to criticism on social media, the episode went viral.
But now Amy’s Baking Company is back in the news with a brand-new eyebrow-raising incident: an onlooker caught — on video — owner Samy charging at a drunk and rowdy customer with what appears to be a knife.
The details of the angry outburst are admittedly fuzzy, but eyewitnesses say that an intoxicated and unruly customer was ordered to leave by Amy, and as he left, Samy ran after him with what appeared in the video, to be a knife, screaming to his wife, “let me!” while an onlooker shouts, “You're going to go to jail for the rest of your life!" and "Think about what you're doing." Representatives from Amy’s Baking Company told TMZ that Samy was actually wielding a pen.
Either way, we can hear Gordon Ramsay’s cries of angry frustration all the way from New York City.
