Just a little disclaimer here: if you want to use a photo, feel free to do so but I have two conditions- 1. Please do not alter my pictures in any way or remove the watermark. I put a lot of work into my photography and post-processing and since I don’t get paid for my photography yet, I would like to maintain some control of my work. 2. Please give me credit for the photographs and link back to the original source. Thank you
The internet has been blazing over a statement that director Michael Bay made regarding the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie slated to be released Christmas 2013. You can see the video here: http://dai.ly/AzBzby. In the video, he says that the Turtles are from an alien race. Yes, that’s right, alien race. After hearing that statement, fans of the Heroes in a Half Shell bombarded the internet with complaints over Bay’s statement. The outrage over Bay’s involvement was so great that it prompted voice actor, Robbie Rist , who played Michelangelo in the first three Turtles movies to write this statement to Michael Bay:
“You probably don’t know me but I did some voice work on the first set of movies that you are starting to talk about sodomizing,” Rist wrote in a message to Bay, according to TMZ. “I know believing in mutated talking turtles is kinda silly to begin with but am I supposed to be led to believe there are ninjas from another planet? The rape of our childhood memories continues…”
Late yesterday evening, Bay wrote a response on his forum page:
“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,” Bay wrote. “Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world.”
Now that the facts have been presented in this firestorm, I want to say this to Paramount Studios, “Remove Michael Bay from the new Turtles movie!!!!” I speak for all the fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise on this matter. Bay will ruin this classic like he ruined the Transformers movies.
