With the arrival of their reality show on the horizon, the owners of Amy's Baking Company in Arizona have taken to the offensive, stating on Fox 10 News that they believe several websites including Yelp and Reddit should be shut down.

The couple, which first became an internet sensation after their public meltdown on Gordon Ramsay's "Kitchen Nightmares" seemingly wants to shut down the internet.

"[Reddit] needs to be closed down. ... I can't say anything that's not filtered and that you won't have to bleep," said co-owner Amy Buzaglo. She later referred to Yelp, saying "That's a four letter word. It's a four-letter word for me."

In a recent interview with LAist, Amy claimed that they are still being cyber bullied from users on Facebook and Yelp, and called "Kitchen Nightmares" host Gordon Ramsey the "king of the trolls on Yelp". (She believes he's leading the charge on the negative reviews of her restaurant.)

While there are undoubtedly many restauranteurs that wouldn't mind Yelp getting some sort of regulation, there's no one that says it quite as candidly and comedically as the Buzaglos.
