Megan Fox Gets The Boot From Transformers III, Everyone’s Favorite Pair Of Racist Robots Out As Well
Transformers: Rise of the Fallen was a debacle of a film. Sure, it made however many million at the box-office, but the film itself was awful. Most people with any semblence of a brain rightly jumped all over the film’s wooden acting, confusing action scenes, and confusing/pointless plot. There wasn’t a lot to like about this movie. One of the things that did not go unnoticed was the presence of these two:
Following in the tradition of Jar-Jar Binks and the hyenesa from The Lion King, those two robots, called Mudflapp and Skidds, would appear to be egregious African-American stereotypes. They spend most of their on-screen time jive-talking, swearing, and not knowing how to read. Apparently, no one said to Michael Bay “Hey, these guys are kind of racist. Maybe we should take out Skidd’s gold tooth or something.” Despite Transformers director Michael Bay’s insistence that the characters were done “in good fun,” they are not they are being booted from the third installment of Transformers.
While I don’t see many people getting upset over the departure of Skids and Mudflapps, the announcement that Megan Fox will not be back for round three is sure to send sweaty fan-boys everywhere into a tizzy. It’s completely understandable too; if the internet has taught us anything, it’s that finding ways to look at attractive, barely-clothed woman is next to impossible these days.
I think Megan Fox is talentless, but I’m still suprised they’re not bringing her back. I feel like there’s a sizable population of people out there stupid enough to go see this movie solely to watch Fox run around in revealing clothing while giant robots battle for intergalactic dominance. Don’t worry, though, I’m sure Michael Bay will replace her with someone just as vapid, slutty, and talentless. Miley Cyrus, anyone?
