Michael Bay Attacked on 'Transformers 4' Set: Report

UPDATE: The man who attacked Michael was reportedly wielding an air conditioner. Michael “ducked and wrested the air conditioner from his attacker, preventing what could have been a serious accident.”

Director Michael Bay was reportedly attacked on the set of his upcoming film Transformers 4 earlier in the day while filming in Hong Kong, China, Reuters reports.

A police statement given to the publication said that two brothers approached Michael and demanded HK$100,000 ($12,900). No reason was given as to why the brothers asked for that amount from Michael.

A discussion happened, and then the older brother attacked Michael, before attacking police officers. Both brothers were arrested.

Michael sustained injuries to the right side of his face, but refused medical attention.

We send our thoughts to Michael for a speedy recovery and hope he is doing okay!

Hahahaha! I hope they will include this scene in his next god awful movie. I am willing to pay just for the sake of it.

skipped out on a hooker’s bill perhaps. he probably thinks he was doing the hooker a favor since he believes he is god’s gift to women.
i seriously doubt anyone in hk would approach him and demand money for nothing.

@Carrie: Compensation for punitive damages is nothing to be messed with. An attack on M. Bay would be justified simply by perusing his film work.

Hard to feel sorry for Michael Bay… some karma had to come his way. I’m glad someone finally punched him in the face.

deserved it tbh @ 10/17/2013 at 11:22 am

…and brave Mark Wahlberg wasn’t there to save the day?

**** just got real.
In their defense, Pearl Harbor really wasn’t that great either. Pain & Gain inspired them it seems.

My heroes! Us TMNT fans keep it real yo.

I guess you could say he got the Michael Bay treatment.
Probably wasn’t just extortion, they wanted him to pay up his tab for all the underage wh*res he’s had on retainer while he’s been over there.

Because he’d just have $13,000 in his pockets, you know.

It is rumoured that the men were angry after missing out on disturbance fees paid by the crew to local business owners who were likely to be affected by filming.

Best news today! Hopefully he won’t continue filming and retire immediately.

They just wanted to be reimbursed for the time wasted watching Armageddon & The Island.

Dammnit. This is a gangsta way to demand your money back for the garbage movies he’s made over his career.

I’ll bet Shia LaBeouf sent those guys to kill Michael Bay in retaliation for Michael killing Shia’s career with those crappy Transformer films.

lol@ him claiming he lost that video of Megan Fox’s audition. He had her wash his car in short shorts as he filmed her. What a perv. It’s still part of his private videos collection. When he’s alone he probably puts it up on his gigantic theater screen and massage mr. happy into being happier.

The $12,900 extorsion fee was an inspired 1290 days anniversary thing.
