So, long story short, a couple who owns a restaurant in California was on Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsay. It went SO bad, Gordon told them they were beyond help, packed up his crew, and left. When the episode aired on Monday, the internet went crazy and blew up Amy's Baking Company on social media. The owners of this restaurant proceeded to go absolutely nuts fighting back.
This folks, is a lesson on how NOT to represent your business on social media.
From the Huffington Post:
One has to wonder what possessed Amy and Samy Bouzaglo, the owners of Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, Ariz., to behave the way they did on last Friday's episode of "Kitchen Nightmares." It's saying something that host Gordon Ramsay comes off as the reasonable, even-keeled one.
The British chef walked off the program for the first time in the show's history, after the couple's antics and finger pointing proved unsurmountable challenges. Some of the more memorable moments: the couple pocketed the waitstaff's tips, admitted to firing more than 100 people, picked a fight with a customer who'd been waiting an hour for his pizza and served up pre-made frozen raviolis.
The best part is after posting all of these horrible things on their facebook page, Amys Baking Company then claimed they had been victims of hacker. Thus, all the horrible things that were said.
You'll understand the craziness above if you just watch a few minutes of the "Kitchen Nightmares" episode.
