This is the Facebook page for Amy’s Baking Company Bakery Boutique & Bistro, a restaurant in Scottsdale, Arizona.
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, the 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.
They discovered a Reddit thread, posted tor/cringepics, about their Facebook meltdown and started monitoring it.
And the Reddit thread was, unfortunately, sending more unruly commenters to the Facebook page.
The whole thing blew up.
And unfortunately, Amy and Samy just kept posting…
They, then, photoshoped a comment thread from Reddit, claiming police were calling users.
Finally, the updates stopped around 9 p.m. Monday night, calling all their commenters “punks” and saying they had “God on their side.”
