Restaurant owners slammed on national TV speak out


Amy's Baking Company was featured on Kitchen Nightmares season finale, and let's just say things didn't go well. For the first time in the show's history, its host, Gordon Ramsay, walked away.

The show aired Friday, showing owners Samy and Amy Bouzaglo flipping out on customers. Since then, it appears they've been flipping out on everyone. CBS 5 News found dozens of posts on their Facebook page. One of the only ones we can share on TV reads, "You are all little punks. Nothing, you are nothing."

Most have so many f-bombs they can't be repeated, but all are hurling insults.

CBS 5 News went to the bakery to find out what's going on. Amy Bouzaglo was not happy to see us.

"You can't film us," she said.

But we asked about those Facebook posts.

"I'm not making those," she said. "Someone has hacked into our account. The FBI is involved, you're not allowed to film me, you're trespassing, please leave."

Just as our cameras were being kicked off the property, the story got even more bizarre. Co-owner Samy Bouzaglo came out, pushed his wife away and decided to talk to us.

"I cannot give you any interview, we have a contract with Kitchen Nightmare and we cannot talk to no press for now," he said.

But then, he just kept talking. Samy backed up Amy and said someone else wrote those scathing Facebook messages.

"They hack to our Facebook, twitters, everything, you know," he said.

Since our visit to the bakery they posted a note on Facebook about their accounts being hacked, saying they're working with police to make sure it doesn't happen again.
