Michael Bay banishes racist robot twins from Transformers 3

It seems like just yesterday I was hearing a bunch of different Transformer names and Chevy car models being thrown around as the cast of TRANSFORMERS 2, and now apparently it’s time once again to start speculation as the sequel starts to coalesce.

The most recent rumor was that the twins, Mudflap and Skids were once again going to grace us with a robotic minstrel performance in the new film, but that notion was quickly shot down by Michael Bay himself on a message board where he definitively said the twins would NOT be in the film.

So as of this month TRANSFORMERS 3 has one point for it and one point against it in my book (I took one away after Grey’s Anatomy’s Dr. McDreamy was cast), brining the grand total to…negative ninety-seven points. Sorry, but TRANSFORMERS 2 was my least favorite film of that year (barely beating out THE LOVELY BONES) and it’s the closest I’ve come to walking out of a theater in years, so my biases are pretty stacked against another sequel. The racist twins were just one of many annoying issues the film had, but axing them is certainly a step in the right direction. Bravo Bay.

Extra Tidbit: I’m sure this will start a “they’re not racist!” debate but one had a GOLD TOOTH and said he COULDN’T READ. Come on!
