Read the petition in full below:
After watching the episode of Kitchen Nightmares on May 10, 2013, it is obvious that this establishment needs to be forced to close.
1) At the beginning of the show, Samy Bouzaglo physically & verbally assaulted a customer who waited for over 2hrs for his food. the customer never got it & proceeded to walk out when Samy confronted & in essence said “Pay or get arrested”.
2)The owners both admitted on camera that they take 100% of the tips from their wait staff, which is a violation of both Arizona and Federal law.
3)Former employees of the establishment spoke with Chef Gordon Ramsay on camera & said that there had been a turnover of about 100 employees within a 12mo period
4)As established by Chef Gordon Ramsay, the food did not look nor did it taste good according to his palate. When he spoke with the owners the 2nd morning, he told them he could not help them if they were not willing to accept constructive criticism.
Therefore, we the people of america who witnessed this atrocity, ask Mayor W. J. “Jim” Lane & the members of the City Council of the City of Scottsdale Arizona to revoke the business license of Amy’s Baking Company & force it’s closure
Scottsdale AZ City Council, Mayor W.J. Jim Lane
Revoke the business license of Amy’s Baking Company & force it’s closure
After engaging in online feuds with reviewers and bloggers, the feisty couple gained notoriety after appearing on Gordon Ramsay‘s hit FOX show — and hoards of information was subsequently dug up on Amy and Samy.
Amy is a convicted felon who was charged with a Class D felony for using someone else’s Social Security number to get a $15,000 loan from a bank, Samy is currently facing deportation, the restaurant has a past history of health department violations and the owners were threatened with a lawsuit that could cost them nearly $200,000 by attorneys for production of Kitchen Nightmares if they continued to publicly bash the show and its famous host.
So far, the petition has reached 70 signatures in it’s quest for 100.
