Michael Bay Apologizes to Korean Fans and Press

Posted: June 17th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Michael Bay Apologizes to Korean Fans and PressSubmit Comment
According to ScreenDaily, Michael Bay decided to send a note of apology to the press and fans in South Korea following some controversy around his recent publicity tour.

The evening of the "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" Seoul premiere, about 600 fans and members of the press waited in the rain for over two hours for the red carpet event with Bay, Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox. At the next day's press conference, Bay and the cast members arrived 30 minutes late, causing several members of the press to stage a walk-out.

Korean websites started to boycott the film and many fans now refuse to go see it in theaters. Since the country has high internet piracy rates, this makes it even more troublesome for Bay and the studio.

In his note, Bay explained his late arrival was due to "traveling from another country, and not allowing enough time for airport delays, city traffic and hotel check-in." He added that he was "in serious pain" due to a pulled back muscle.

South Korea is an important foreign market. The first "Transformers" film brought in over $50 million from the country.

On a side note: The Korean press was puzzled by Fox's comments during the premiere, where she likened actors and actresses to prostitutes.

Never have I heard a more stupid female in my lifetime being so vocal in public. She's not deep- she's just THICK....but either way I'll side with the reporters. We all know Korean d*cks are tiny- waiting in the rain doesnt takes whatever manhood they have left. Which is why they walked out like a bunch of little pricks...pun intended.

If she said that actors and actresses suck c*ck and have sex for money she might have some experience in the matter. Listen up South Korea!

Doesn't really sound like an "apology" more like a bunch of whiney excuses. Grow a pair Bayheimer! - Or at least grow a pair on one of your robots.

Whiney excuses? He's only 30 minutes late! Maybe its time South Korea stops being a bunch of pussies. Its rain...American paparzzi sleep in f*cking trees for a week just to get one shot of a nipple. These tools can wait 30 minutes in f*cking weather to grab a story.
