Amy’s Baking Company Cancels Press Conference After Fox Makes Lawsuit Threat

amys-baking-company-press

Amy’s Baking Company — you know, that lovable couple America just can’t get enough of — cancelled a press conference after Fox sent them a friendly reminder to not “spea[k] publicly about Kitchen Nightmares.” Fox, the production company behind Gordon Ramsay’s KN, also noted that if the restaurant “disparage[s] the show, the host, or its producers,” they will be forced to pay “liquidated damages of $100,000.” Needless to say, the press conference scheduled for after tonight’s “Grand Re-opening” was promptly cancelled.

When word of the cease and desist from Fox went public, Rose+Moser+Allyn (the PR firm Amy’s Baking Company hired for damage control) parted ways with the restaurant. Jason Rose, president of the firm, explained to the Phoenix Business Journal that his company and owners Amy and Samy Bouzaglo had “differences on public relations strategies.” Apparently, these differences were enough to cause Rose+Moser+Allyn to split after a mere 5 days of working with the Bouzaglos.

However, despite the letter from Fox, which can be seen here via CBS 5 Arizona, the couple spoke publicly in a radio interview about their negative and unfair portrayal on KN. Whoops.

“Jason Rose, president of the firm, explained to the Phoenix Business Journal that his company and owners Amy and Samy Bouzaglo had “differences on public relations strategies.””

Let me guess–his firm wanted them to stop being whiny/defensive/OFFensive/vile on social media?

‘Differences on public relations strategies’ is PR speak for ‘Clients who refuse to do any of the things I’ve advised them to do, because they’re too far gone in denial of how THEY are the problem with their image, no one else.”

First Gordon Ramsay bails on them, because they won’t listen to him, and now Jason Rose does.
