After celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay gave up on helping them on his show Kitchen Nightmares last week, a US restaurant has blasted its "s---" customers on Facebook.
But Amy's Baking Company in Arizona says its site was hacked and staff didn't write the obscenity-ridden comments about people who criticised its food on websites Yelp and Reddit.
"You people are all s---. Yelp s---, Reddits s---. Every s---. Come to here, I will f---ing show you all," one of the posts read.
In another post, the bakery boutique and bistro called those criticising them online "little punks".
"Nothing, you are all nothing," the comment said.
"We are laughing at you. All of you, just fools.
"We have God on our side, you just have your sites."
In an episode of Kitchen Nightmares last week, Amy's Baking Company became the first restaurant Ramsay said he wasn't able to help.
"They are incapable of listening," Ramsay said after walking out on the business.
"In a short period of time they've managed to p--- off the community and go through over 100 employees in one year.
"Samy and Amy continue to blame everyone else yet their biggest problem is themselves."
During the episode, the duo swore at customers, threatened to call the police and kicked people out for complaining.
The restaurant has since deleted most of the aggressive posts and says staff didn't write them.
"Obviously our Facebook, YELP, Twitter and Website have been hacked," it posted today.
"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."
