The owners of Amy's Baking Company, an Arizona eatery featured last week on Fox's "Kitchen Nightmares" with British chef Gordon Ramsay, had a social media meltdown after they were attacked online for their outrageous behavior on the show.

Owned by husband-and-wife duo Samy and Amy Bouzaglo, Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, Ariz., was featured on the May 10 episode of "Kitchen Nightmares," a reality program where the acerbic Ramsay is sent across the U.S. to help overhaul failing restaurants.

But the Bouzaglos crazy antics — including telling customers to "go f— themselves," intentionally burning pizza that comes back too underdone, and pocketing their wait staff's tips — led Ramsay to walk off the program for the first time ever, and caused major backlash online.

In response to the negative reviews on Yelp and Reddit, the Bouzaglos posted a series of rambling, psycho comments on their business' Facebook page earlier this week.

Here's a sampling:

"You are all little punks. Nothing. You are all nothing. We are laughing at you. All of you, just fools. We have God on our side, you just have your sites."

"You people are all s—. Yelp s—, Reddits s—. Every s—. Come to here, I will f—ing show you all."

"To all of the Yelpers and Reddits: Bring it on. 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."

Now, the Bouzaglos are claiming their account was hacked

"Obviously our Facebook, YELP, Twitter, and Website have been hacked," read a statement posted Tuesday on their Facebook page. "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. Thank You Amy & Samy."

But the damage was done. The restaurant's Yelp rating is a disappointing one and a half stars out of five, with comments like "Samy is a terrorist" popping up often in the customer reviews.
