Michael Bay

RELAX, I'm Not Gonna Crap

on the Ninja Turtles

Michael Bay has a strong message for the panicked Ninja Turtles fans who are freaking out about his new TMNT movie ... CHILL THE HELL OUT!!!!

Turtle fans have been going INSANE ever since Bay announced he was planning to tweak the origin story in his upcoming live action movie ... with Leo and the gang belonging to an alien race instead of mutating from ooze in the sewer.

Now, Bay has released a statement ... saying, "Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script. Our team is working closely with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles to help expand and give a more complex back story."

He continues, "Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world."

Satisfied?

1) The country is going to hell

2) The world is going to hell

3) Michael, Whitney, Oprah, Rosie, LiLo and TMNT's are what people care about

4) If you are still reading...is there any wonder why 1 & 2 are happening?

Michael Bay can say whatever he wants. He has proven to the people who are fans on the 80's shows that he is a poor film maker. This movie will bomb based on that fact alone. It's insulting to think the fan base would just accept his choice to make the Turtles aliens. I hope this is the movie that either changes his approach or ends his mainstream career.

He's so full of S**T it's not even funny! Michael Bay is regarded as one of the most narcissistic, self-serving, pricks in Hollywood! He's rumored to have fired people on his crews for frivolous reasons. Are we really meant to believe he gives a crap what a bunch of true blue comic book fans think?! All he cares about is filling seats, he doesn't give a s**t who sits in them.

Relax. Bay hasn't read the script either so it will definitely go from bad to suck once he does.
