So apparently calling your boss Hitler is a good way to get your ass fired.
Turns out Megan Fox didn’t choose to leave the ‘Transformer’ franchise, homegirl was fired!
According to reports, Steven Speilberg, who is the executive producer of the ‘Transformer’ movies, demanded the actress be fired from the third movie after she compared director Michael Bay to Hitler.
The Daily Mail is reporting that Bay revealed that he was told to get rid of Fox, saying, “You know the Hitler thing. Steven (Spielberg) said, fire her right now.”
Spielberg is the executive producer of the ‘Transformer’ movies and Fox was replaced by Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the latest installation of the ‘Transformers’ series called ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon.’
Fox shot into the limelight after the first two ‘Transformers’ movie and it was due to her performance in them which helped her to be named one of the sexiest people in the world.
The drama between Fox and Bay started in 2009 when she told London’s Wonderland Magazine, “[Bay] wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in director mode, I kind of really enjoy his personality because he’s so awkward, so hopelessly awkward.”
Fox continued. “He has no social skills at all. And it’s endearing to watch him. He’s vulnerable and fragile in real life and then on set he’s a tyrant.”
Bay later on went to say that he was not hurt by the said the Hitler comment.
But others did not share the 25-year-old actress view and in an open letter on Bay’s website a crew member defended the director, writing, “We’ve had the tedious experience of working with the dumb-as-a-rock Megan Fox on both ‘Transformers’ movies.”
Do you think Megan deserved to be fired over her statement? Or is this another case of people being too dang sensitive!
