The Facebook page of an Arizona bakery became a national story after the owners of Amy's Baking Company were featured on Gordon Ramsay's FOX show.

But the insane-seeming duo now says they had nothing to do with the EPIC rants that followed their Kitchen Nightmares appearance, which was ridiculed online.

Instead, they're playing the "hacking" card.

On last week's episode of Fox's Kitchen Nightmares, loudmouth UK chef Gordon Ramsay paid a visit to Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Samy and Amy Bouzaglo

Yelp reviews call the restaurant itself “horrible” and accuse the owners of stealing waitresses’ tips ... and of being tyrannical nut jobs on social media.

Not even Ramsay could convince the stubborn owner to change her behavior, which only became more evident after their exploits aired on Fox.

The show caught the attention of Reddit, whose users slammed the restaurant's Facebook page with comments, triggering an epic social media meltdown.

As such, obviously, "[customer] cannot leave house to pickup."

A 23-year-old Norwegian guy thinks Charlie Sheen may be his father.

Certainly not unreasonable, based on the circumstances he explains.

His theory has gone viral, too, thanks to this hilarious Reddit photo:

Charlie Sheen Secret Son Photo

The picture really speaks for itself, but a few things do stand out:

  1. His English is great, save for his spelling of "stewardess."
  2. He's not a fan of his "dad's" show Anger Management.
  3. He certainly knows how to spread his message.
  4. He really does look like a younger Charlie.
  5. Would anyone be at all surprised?!
