    The two owners of Amy?s Baking Company Bakery Boutique & Bistro took over the restaurant?s Facebook page last night to fight unruly commenters, and man, was it embarrassing.posted on May 14, 2013 at 10:15am EDT


    This is the Facebook page for Amy?s Baking Company Bakery Boutique & Bistro, a restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona.


    [​IMG]

    If you recognize the name of the restaurant, it was recently featured on an episode of Gordon Ramsey?sKitchen Nightmares. The owners were dumped by Ramsey after being too difficult to work with.

    Apparently, last night, owners Samy and Amy Bouzaglo took to the restaurant?s Facebook to defend themselves against nasty comments from users.

    As they started posting, they started receiving nastier and nastier comments back at them.

    And the Facebook updates quickly spun out of control.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [/COLOR]They discovered a Reddit thread posted tor/cringepics about their Facebook meltdown and started monitoring it.


    [​IMG]

    And the Reddit thread was, unfortunately, sending more unruly commenters to the Facebook page.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    The whole thing blew up.


    [​IMG]

    And unfortunately, Amy and Samy just kept posting?


    [​IMG]

    And posting?


    [​IMG]

    And posting.


    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    They then Photoshopped a comment thread from Reddit, claiming police were calling users.


    [​IMG]

    Finally, the updates stopped around 9 p.m. Monday night, with Amy and Samy calling all their commenters ?punks? and saying they had ?God on their side.?

    The restaurant?s reviews on Yelp are definitely notfavorable.

    They were on the news tonight. They said their Facebook/Twitter was hacked after the show and claimed none of that stuff was posted by them.

    You dont't want to deal with them.

    I was thinking the same thing. How they run a business at all. The man is probably rich (was) and he started this restaurant for his wifey.

    This is the single most entertaining thread on Black Hat World.
    Nothing I can say about those people hasn't already been said.

    It was a joke, I'd rather do business with a Columbian cartel.

    Getting those people a good reputation back is close to impossible.

    They had a surge in likes tho... At the time of the buzzfeed post they had 2k likes, now they have 40k likes, so this "scandal" was good for their notoriety.

    Maybe the guys upstairs are testing new marketing methods but the "it wasn't me" stunt payed off. At least for now they're viral and they'll continue to be so for a while. It will backfire again on them if they really make crappy food.

    Good to know method..

    1) Get a celebrity to do a show about you
    2) Get that celebrity to talk shit about you
    3) When comments come pouring in go apeshit on all of your social profiles and keep going apeshit for the whole day
    4) A day or 2 after come and say you've been hacked and the CIA, Mossad and MI6 are aiding you in finding the hackers.
    5) Bank hard!!!
