*Transformers director Michael Bay has decided to let what some critics would call, the “Amos and Andy” characters of Transformers 2.
If you didn’t get the memo or didn’t see the film, the movie introduced two Autobots named Mudflap and Skids, with mocking personalities.
Neither of the short, beat up bots could read, they spoke ridiculous slang and ebonics. One of them even rocked a gold front tooth.
After some harsh backlash about the characters, Bay says he’s taking the sequel into a different direction.
“We’re just putting more personality in,” Bay commented during the controversy. “I don’t know if it’s stereotypes – they are robots, by the way. These are the voice actors. This is kind of the direction they were taking the characters and we went with it. I purely did it for kids. Young kids love these robots, because it makes it accessible to them…”
The film giant has confirmed, however, on his movie forum that the Autobot Twins will not be back. But he is also known for his jokes and deceiving movie bate for the film nerds.
T3 has begun filming in Los Angeles.
