Last week’s season finale of chef Gordon Ramsay’s Kitchen Nightmares featured Amy’s Baking Company Bakery Boutique & Bistro of Scottsdale, Ariz., a restaurant so vile and beyond repair that it led Ramsay to walk off the show for the first time ever.
The owners of Amy’s Baking Company were shown stealing tips from waitresses, calling customers by homophobic slurs, reselling store-bought food as if it had been made in-house and just generally being gigantic twats (to steal a word from Ramsay himself).
After the episode aired, someone took to the official Amy’s Baking Company Facebook page and posted the following message: “We do not feel the need to make any excuses for our behavior on tonight’s show.” The spokesperson then denied that the restaurant’s owners ever stole from employees.
This didn’t really stem the tide of negative comments the page started getting from viewers of the show, though. Then, someone posted YouTube clips of the episode (which have since been taken down) to Reddit and Yelp and the tide of negative comments became a tsunami.
And then things got really good.
In the past 24 hours, whoever has control of the Amy’s Baking Company Facebook page has completely lost it, posting message after message of rambling threats and denials. It’s as good a corporate social media meltdown as you’ll ever see.
Check some of this utter insanity out:
The images above are just scratching the surface. You really need to head over to the Facebook page and log in to take in the full extent of the batcrap craziness. Heck, maybe you’ll even want to join in the commenting fun.
