Amy and Samy Bouzaglatell, of Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, Ariz., lashed back at Gordon Ramsey after the at celebrity chef and "Kitchen Nightmares" host determined that the couple's restaurant was beyond repair.
"After 100 kitchen nightmares, I met two owners I could not help, it is because they are incapable of listening," Ramsay said on Friday's episode of the show. The Bouzaglatells then accused "Kitchen Nightmares" producers with sensationalizing their problems, and told KTAR in Arizona that they received death threats and falsely negative Yelp reviews after the episode aired.
In defense of their restaurant, reputation and lives, Amy and Samy appeared to take to their Facebook page in a series of outrageous and impassioned posts that quickly went viral.
The posts have since been deleted, but E! Online, The Hollywood Reporter and KTAR captured some of the most over-the-top messages:
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.
I AM NOT STUPID ALL OF YOU ARE. YOU JUST DO NOT KNOW GOOD FOOD. IT IS NOT UNCOMMON TO RESELL THINGS WALMART DOES NOT MAKE THEIR ELECTRONICS OR TOYS SO LAY OFF!!!!

WE WILL TEACH THEM HOW TO FIGHT AGAINST OPRESSORS (sic) LIKE YOU PEOPLE! WE WILL START A GENERATION OF TRUTHFULNESS ND WE WILL FIGHT TO BRING PLACES LIKE, YELP AND REDDIT, AND HORRIBLE PEOPLE LIKE GORDON TO THE LIGHT.
Samy and I will stand strong through the oppression that has been thrown at us. We ask that our supporters keep us in their prayers, through this rough and unjust time in our lives. Thank all of you, and thank God. We will not bend to the will of these haters and sinners.
Amy and Samy deleted those posts, however, and issued a statement saying that their social media pages had been hacked, "obviously."
"Obviously our Facebook, YELP, Twitter and Website have been hacked," the Bouzaglatells said in the most recent post. "We are working with the local authorities as well as the FBI computer crimes unit to ensure this does not happen again. We did not post those horrible things."
