A Restaurant “Kitchen Nightmares” Couldn’t Help, Has Internet Meltdown

If there are college classes about the uses of Social Media for businesses, this is sure to go down as a major DON’T. 

Amy’s Baking Company is an Arizona based restuarant that recently appeared on an episode of the Gordon Ramsey hosted show, Kitchen Nightmares. It soon became the first restaurant in such bad shape, that Ramsey walked out.

Apparently Ramsey felt he couldn’t help a restaurant that pocketed their server’s tips, claimed to “have three little boys but they’re trapped inside cat bodies…They’re cats…”, or served food made somewhere else.

After the episode appeared Friday, the restaurant has seen a major backlash on various social media sites. Of course, they responded with tirades in ALL CAPS, declaring war on their Yelp and Reddit “haters”.

With no understanding of how the internet works, the posts on the Amy Baking Company Facebook page also claimed that a major conspiracy was going on. There were no clues as to who was making the posts including one post that called Amy “a jewel of the desert” and another that said “come to my business. say it to my face. man to man. my wife is a jewel in the desert. you are just trash,”

Of course the owners Amy and Samy Bouzaglo took the Anthony Weiner excuse, and claimed that they had been hacked. Without apologizing they issued a statement that said:

“Obviously our Facebook, YELP, Twitter and Website have been hacked. We are working with the local authorities as well as the FBI computer crimes unit to ensure this does not happen again. We did not post those horrible things. Thank You Amy&Samy.”

You can check out the their shenanigans on Kitchen Nightmares, in the video below. And if   Amy’s Baking Company sounds like the place you want to work, they were hiring (and probably still are since they bragged about firing “hundreds” of servers).
