It does appear that some Yelp images on their personal FB account were manipulated. Check out user samyamy.bouzaglo on FB.
@anonn There's a few reasons to think they weren't hacked. First of all, the local authorities don't care about your social media accounts. The FBI? Good grief, they'd say don't waste our time. Secondly, the KN show highlighted their sensitivity to online criticism. That's why they wanted help to begin with, to have Gordon vindicate them. They specifically noted Yelp reviews, so here's the kicker: they were 'hacked' and years worth of bitter responses by somebody posing as Samy were put in? I don't think so. And, all their social media accounts got hacked.. at the same time? (OK, maybe they used the same password?) And why did it take days for them to finally notice? No, it doesn't add up.
They shouldn't have aired the program, imho, let alone make it the season finale. It wasn't about food and Gordon didn't help them. They were obviously prime troll fodder, so it's not surprising to see the meltdown. Everybody likes to watch a train wreck, but it usually doesn't end well. OTOH, they are nasty abusive people. so it's hard to feel sorry for them.
