The Twins Dropped From Latest Transformers Flick

| Filed under: Film Flickers

This is Michael Bay stepping away from the controversy.

When the last Transformers was released, some people were offended by two allegedly stereotypical and "racist" robots, The Twins, Mudflap and Skids.

The heavy criticism might have been avoided had it not been for the characters' use of "exaggerated slang." Also, the gold-tooth and inability to read didn't help.

So instead of standing by his creations, Michael is taking the easy way out and just tossing them. He officially announced that The Twins won't be making it into the next Transformer's flick.

So, you are a racist and coward? Now we get it.

    NOOOOOO! these guys were the best part of T2! ugh…stupid Bay.



  2. 2

    Damn, you are so dumb. If he got a boatload of complaints and was made to see the error in his ways, why would he "stand by" a mistake he made?!?!?!?! Why is it cowardly to correct your mistakes and move on?

    You are the coward. A fame seeking celebrity wannabe coward.



  3. 3

    sound of crickets chirping



  4. 4

    sigh. the racism thing is getting old.



  5. 5

    dude how are those bots even racist! i didn't get that all! Michael Bay and transformers suck any way!



  6. 6

    There's a lot of stereotypes in movies. Take "Cars" for example. The tow truck was a stereotype of a southerner with buck teeth and all. It's what makes it funny. People need to chill out with the whole jumping- to- conclusions- he- must- be- a- racist, b.s…



  7. 7

    Whiny ass bitches. The twins were BY FAR the best part of that shiteous movie. Blah. FOR SHAAAME Michael Bay, for shame.



  8. 8

    If I was Bay I would make the entire movie about those two stealing cars and dealing dope. Please, why arent people in a uproar about Donkey from shrek.



  9. 9

    NOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! SOMEONE PLEASE START A PETITION!!!!!! the twin robots were funny!! how the hell can robots be racist? they are ROBOTS not PEOPLE.



  10. 10

    WHY WHY WHY make another Transformer movie? They are sooooooooooo boring.



  11. 11

    I agree with Aquarela. Perez, you're the coward. A sad, fat wannabe coward.

    PLUS, I didn't see anything "racist" about the twins.



  12. 12

    Who know why it's called a stereotype? Because it true.



  13. 13

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! i love them! as a black person i wasnt offended at all..i was laughin..ugggh! HOLLYWOOD!



  14. 14

    Michael Bay is a HORRIBLE director.



  17. 17

    Exaggerated slang? Aint nuttin exaggerated about how they talked. I hear ignornant ass people talking worse than those two robots everyday. Fo Real ! If you don't want to be thought of as a stereotype then DON'T PLAY INTO THE STEREOTYPE !! People act ignorant as hell and then get pissed when "they" are potrayed as such.



  18. 18

    This is ridiculous.



  19. 19

    I guess all the other robots are steriotypically white? hahhaa



  20. 20

    no are you kidding me? Why must a black man be stereotyped as a hoodlum. I can not STAND anyone who stereo types! They are also the same people that pull out "race/homophobic/religion/etc card" seriously sit down and stfu!

    Act like a human being, nobody will ever respect you for acting like a stereotype and IM GLAD THEY REMOVED THOSE GHETTO WANNABE TRANSFORMERS they were a joke!



  21. 21

    Perez Hilton is to the LGBT community as Sarah Palin is to the Republicans. WE DON'T WANT YOU! Stop talking about LGBT issues! You do nothing positive for us. You are a closed-minded, negative, insensitive, and bigoted person. YES PEREZ HILTON IS A BIGOT (A bigot is one who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices).



  22. 22

    Ok, I never saw this movie, but you just had me laughing. MUST see it now….hilarious!



  23. 23

    The "racists" are those who argue that using slang, being illiterate, and having a gold tooth is stereotyping.
    Cowardly? No. Avoiding another uproar from ignorant viewers and critics? I believe so.
    Idiots.



  24. 24

    What! He's making another Transformers movie? It'll probably be 4.5 action packed hours of lame ass jokes, shaky cam syndrome, stupid plot lines, 3D!, and Megan Fox for no good reason. Also, It'll continue to include none of the cool transformers while making up new, annoying robots. Ugh, Bay sucks balls.



  25. 25

    He's probably taking them out because they sucked, were unnecessary and people hate them. or at least that should be the reason.



  26. 26

    noooo! i loved the twins. they're hillarious!



  27. 27

    Get a fucking GRIP, it's just a movie people …
    GET A SENSE OF HUMOR !!!!!



  28. 28

    NOOOO!!!!!! THEY WERE MY FAVORITE BOTS!!!!!! :( Such a lame controversy. People need to get over themselves and Bay needs to put them back into the T3 movie.

    This is so stupid,I have a 7years old little boy who adored these 2,not only him but a large amount of his mates too. I think its a bad idea to leave these 2 out as I know plenty of little boys who love them…. For gods sake I looked for these 2 figurines for 3 months-here they sold out before they hit the shelves!!! I think this may be a decision he'll regret….

    god damn it perez
    you are not allowed to agree with me on anything

    don't twits like you love michael bay?
    you fucking pig shit



  33. 33

    People need to relax, it's getting to the point you can't say or do anything without it being questioned as racist. I think racism is very wrong and hurtful, but come on! You can't always be political correct since it's always forever changing.



  34. 34

    People need to relax ! It's getting to the point were you can't do anything without people calling you a racist! Racism is very wrong, i know how it feels, but come on! You can't always be political correct, since it's forever changing!



  35. 35

    oh my god hollywoooooooooood!!! that's ridiculous, this world is getting way to PC. Exaggerated stereotypes is what gets people laughing, making fun of each other is human nature! they were FUNNY. not once did i think 'omg racist'.



  36. 36

    what?!?!! i loved these characters, never even crossed my mind that they were racist!
    u know why? because i am not a racist and i dont think in stereotypes.
    the racism issues nowadays come from racist people themselves, because they do clearly believe in stereotypes, if they didnt, they wouldnt think like that.
    its like when u say a joke with inuendo and someone goes; you're so dirty minded -but if they werent dirty minded themselves they wouldnt get the inuendo in the first place.

    The cries of racism had merit in the 50's, some merit in the 60's, questionable in the 70's and pretty much a joke for the past thirty years. You never hear about the rampant racism in the Black and Hispanic communities though.



  38. 38

    Old news.



  39. 39

    Well the first token black died so they needed a replacement. Now how will they meet the minority quota?



  40. 40

    LOL…they were the only robots that didn't suck in that movie!



  41. 41

    Racist? AHahha man Perez..



  42. 42


  43. 43

    its a movie for christ sakes stop making everything about Gender and Color.



  44. 44

    if people are getting mad because they say its racist and stereotypical. then the stereotype must be true, correct?



  45. 45

    seriously…. the twins were HIGHLARIOUS!! and anyone who felt they were racist needs to pull the stick out of there a** and realize it was all in good fun. what is this country coming to that we cannot poke fun at people anymore without throwing the race card in…. He should bring them back on purpose!!



  46. 46

    AWWW! I loved them. :(



  47. 47

    aw man that sucks! they was hella funny!



  48. 48

    THEY WERE MY FAVOURITE ONES!!!!!



  49. 49

    So now Perez has decided that Bay is a racist.
    Strong accusation.
    The founding fathers must regret ever having thought about this whole «freedom of speech» thing.
    Sue bastard Perez, sue!



  50. 50

    I am sooo tired of the racist card being pulled! Civil rights happened in the 60's, get over it!



  51. 51

    awww….how sad! i thought they were hilarious especially when they would beat each other up



  52. 52

    oh boofuckinghoo…something somewhere offended someone. imagine that. not wanting to deal with idiots doesn't make him a racist or a coward…it makes him normal.



  53. 53

    Re: spavrum – im white and i am offended by your lack of class and tact to a much sensitive/painful era in our american history. how about you relearn how to pass for something human, you insensitive prick!



  54. 54

    FAIL!!! They were awesome and hysterical!! You suck Michael Bay.



  55. 55

    Why was it racist???? I just do not get this anymore!!!

    When I see 'mexican' people in movies speaking with the accent that we have… why in the world am I going to be offended for!!! That is the way most mexican people speak… with that accent!!! If it's the truth, why the offense then?

    Did the french were offended by Steve Martin's hamburger in the Pink Panther??? I do not think so!!!

    If that's the way some black people speak which they do, I do not see why they were offended and called it racist!!!

    The world we live in is a melting pot!!! All of us are so different yet the same



  56. 56

    The twins were hilarious in a pretty poorly developed film. They weren't racist at all, and Michael Bay should have the balls to keep them in the next movie. Clearly he doesn't.
