In six seasons of Kitchen Nightmares, Chef Gordon Ramsay has never quit on a client. Until last week, that is, when he found Amy and Samy Bouzaglo, owners of Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, Arizona, simply beyond help.
"It is because they are incapable of listening," an exasperated Ramsay told viewers.
Ramsay was being unusually euphemistic: Throughout the episode, the Bouzaglos threatened some customers, screamed profanities at others, fired waitstaff, and proved generally terrifying.
"You have the right to run the business the way you want to run your business," Ramsay tells the couple after giving it his best shot. "I have the right to do the right thing. And the right thing for me is to get out of here."
And it was that real talk that finally convinced Amy and Samy to straighten up and fly right.
Nope: Since the show aired, the Bouzaglos have taken their now-infamous charm online, and have been going unequivocally apeshit over comments being left on their Facebook page.
Apparently driven right over the edge by a flood of one-star reviews on Yelp and similarly unflattering takes on their professionalism by Redditors, Amy and Samy have left a series of increasingly loud Facebook posts blaming their impending financial ruin on everyone and everything besides themselves:
It was around this time that Reddit users started to back off and moved on to other matters.
Nah: They've spent the last 10 hours debating the real possibility that Amy's Baking Company is just front for a money laundering operation.
Update: Amy's Baking Company has since updated their Facebook status to read the following:
Amy's 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.
This is probably not true, but there it is anyway.
