'Kitchen Nightmares' Couple at War with Reddit, Yelp Critics

Amy and Samy Bouzaglatell, who Gordon Ramsay felt were beyond salvation, have mounted a profanity-laced counterattack on social media users.

Kitchen Nightmares Amy's Baking Company - H 2013

They became instantly famous on Friday's episode of Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, a mercurial couple named Amy and Samy Bouzaglatell, who were featured cussing-out customers and allegedly hoarding tips left for the servers who work at their Scottsdale, Ariz., restaurant, Amy's Baking Company Bakery Boutique & Bistro.

The Bouzaglatells were so impudent, in fact, that Ramsay stormed out on them, deeming them the first case in Kitchen Nightmares history to be beyond salvation.

And once upon a time, that would have been the end of the story. But in today's social media-obsessed world, it was just the beginning. 

In the hours and days that followed, outraged viewers took to popular message boards like Reddit and Yelp to mock, bash and, according to one Fox 10 news report, even make death threats against the small-business owners.

Hardly the types to take that kind of criticism lying down, the Bouzaglatells have posted a series of angry, over-the-top responses to their detractors, many in all-caps, on their Facebook page.

The responses themselves have begun to go viral across the Internet.

A sampling:

"You people are all sh-t. Yelp shit, Reddits sh-t. Every sh-t. Come to here, I will f---ing show you all."

"This is Samy. I am keeping note of all names here. We will be pursuing action against you legally, and against reddit and yelp, for this plot you have come together on. you are all just punks."

"To all of the Yelpers and Reddits: Bring it on. you are just pussies. come to arizona. you are weaker than my wife, and weaker than me. come to my business. say it to my face. man to man. my wife is a jewel in the desert. you are just trash.reddits and yelpers just working together to bring us down. pathetic."

"I AM WONDER WOMAN. I AM A GREAT CHEF, A GREAT WIFE, AND A GREAT MOM TO MY KIDS. AND WE WILL BE PARENTS TO A HUMAN KID, ONE DAY TO. WE WILL SHOW ALL OF YOU."

"WE DO NOT NEED THIS. YOU STUPID PEOPLE. AMERICA IS ABOUT RESSLING, IT IS NOT A BIG DEAL. THE CAKES WE OFFER ARE EXPENSIVE BECAUSE WE HAVE TO REPACKAGE AND SHIP. DO NOT BLAME US BECAUSE YOU CAN NOT AFFORD QUALITY. THE YELPERS, AND NOW THE REDDITS, NEED TO BACK OFF. YOURE NOT RIGHT JUST BECAUSE OF SOME TV SHOW."

"WE ARE NOT FREAKING OUT. WE DO NOT CARE ABOUT A "WITCH HUNT" I AM NOT A WITCH. I AM GODS CHILD. PISS OFF ALL OF YOU. FUCK REDDITS, FUCK YELP AND FUCK ALL OF YOU. BRING IT. WE WILL FIGHT BACK."
