Aw, Man, Do I Have To Feel Sorry For Him Now? Michael Bay Punched In The Face By Strangers.

Michael Bay, Hollywood hajillioaire and peddler of the schlocky, ‘splodey boom genre, was assaulted in Hong Kong on the set of Transformers 4. No it wasn’t someone defending Megan Fox’s honor. Nor was it someone shouting “A FOURTH ONE?! YOU’RE MAKING A FOURTH ONE?! WHYYYY” It was two men who walked right on set and asked Bay for $13,000. An oddly specific and unrealistic amount to expect from a walk-by stick up.

One of the fellas then socked Michael Bay in the face. Yaaaay! I mean. No. No that’s really too bad. He’s fine. His face is fine. He didn’t even go to the hospital. And we do not encourage violence against people we don’t like. That’s what our words are for. So cheer up, Michael Bay, and get better you second-rate pusher of robotic opiates chock full of uninspired characters, unimaginative narratives and brain blisteringly dull special-effects meant to stupefy* and corrode the masses. I hope you aren’t too bruised.

Comments Are Welcome, Jerks Will Be Banned


  • googergieger

    *leans back in chair and waits for a billion dollars and offensively long penis to magically happen*

  • **I AM** NotTheOne

    Don't forget that Shia Labeouf supposedly got beat up a few days ago. One by one, everyone associated with the Transformers movies will be taken down. Hide Megan Fox and Hugo Weaving*

    * I don't know who else was in those movies.

  • Welldressed

    The Transformers Tontine is getting brutal. Expect Tyreese's retribution to be swift and lethal.

  • Sean

    Does anyone really think Bay got hit for no reason? Really? Do you think it more likely that he probably owed someone money for blow or hookers, and didn't pay?

  • carrie

    i love Bay for this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v... and his ET joke in the first Transformer movie

  • Bob Genghis Khan

    I'll never understand the hate for Michael Bay. He isn't posing as David Lean, Kubrick, or even Spielberg. He has a niche, he knows his niche, and he creates exactly what he sets out to create, and makes millions in the process. And anyone of you entertainment journalists would trade jobs with him in a second. So why not back off?

  • JustOP

    Like him, feel sorry for him, I don't particularly care. What I do feel uncomfortable with is using the assault of a man to ridicule him and his work.
    I somehow feel that this article would have had an entirely different tone if this had happened to a female director.

  • sanity fair

    Yeah, I'm uncomfortable with using a real-life physical attack to denigrate someone's work. He is still a human being, after all.

    However, I don't think we need to make the conversation about gender.

  • JustOP

    True, and I normally wouldn't have mentioned it. However, given the authors history of articles on this website (many of which focus on equality between gender/race etc), I thought it was a relevant point to be made.

  • sanity fair

    I see your point. But violence perpetrated on a woman carries its own stigma that would make the whole incident different for a lot of people. (I say this as a woman who has some experience with violence, so I'm pretty biased, I guess.)

  • Ben

    I think the point is that it shouldn't. Violence against anyone should be treated as abhorrent regardless of their genitalia.

  • sanity fair

    I'm uncomfortable with lambasting the man's work right after he's been a victim precisely because violence against anyone IS abhorrent. Making it about gender at all only overshadows that very valid point, because some people are so sensitive about it.

  • ShagEaredVillain

    And of course my favorite part of the whole thing is you clarifying that when you said "stupefy," you did not mean a stunning spell.

  • AvaLehra

    Ha! He's filming in the neighborhood I grew up in. Score one for the old 'hood.

  • Justin Hess

    Hopefully, he suffered such a powerful blow to the head that it rewrote his entire mental architecture, thus inadvertently making him a better director.

    Violence is completely acceptable in this case

  • i normally don't endorse violence, but i saw pain & gain a couple of weeks ago and i'm finding it hard to sympathize when it comes to this knucklehead.

  • Fredo

    "You keep talking like a bitch, you're gonna get slapped like a bitch."

  • stryker1121

    This still won't stop him from adding a gay Puerto Rican comic relief robot to T4.

  • BWeaves

    OK, I just got a visual of Jar Jar Blinks with wheels. I don't know why.

  • Not that I think anyone deserves to be punched in the face, but this altercation is exactly the kind of thing Bay would use to beef up his macho cred.

    "Dude! I got punched in the face by a couple of guys in Hong Kong and LIVED. I don't back down for NUTHIN'!"

    *KABLOOEY*

  • TherecanbeonlyoneAdmin

    Everyone knows you can't hurt Michael Bay in the face. All of his powers are concentrated in his baynis. I actually hear that if you punch him repeatedly in the junk he pays out like a slot machine jackpot.

  • e jerry powell

    Then we can send his Boy Parts to New Orleans.

  • emmalita

    Hehe. You said baynis.
