Michael Bay Says Spielberg Told Him To Fire Megan Fox Over Her 'Hitler' Remark

Granted, there were lots of legitimate reasons for Michael Bay to fire Megan Fox off the Transformers franchise a year ago. (Refresh your memory by re-reading, MICHAEL BAY’S REVENGE! No More Megan.) But now the Transformers 3 director gives GQ this reason why he axed her: the film’s exec producer Steven Spielberg told him to because of Fox’s remark that Bay “wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for”. I say, shame on Bay for hiding behind Spielberg now. Man up, Michael:

Michael Bay: She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry. You gotta stay focused. And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven [Spielberg] said, “Fire her right now.”
