A few days ago, we reported that Michael Bay was attacked by a man wielding an air conditioner on the Hong Kong set of "Transformers: Age of Extinction." And now, the director got in touch with TMZ to give them the full story. Watch the video below.
According to Bay, he was filming near some stores and paid the store-owners a fee for the inconvenience. Everyone was happy to take the fee, except one man, who wanted four-times as much. When Bay refused to pay, the man attacked him with an air-conditioner.
The story become crazier, when seven military men tried to restrain the man, who Bay said weighed 120 lbs at most. The man lifted all seven men off of him and then bit right through the shoe of one of the military guys.
Bay wasn't harmed. And while the man was eventually subdued, his punishment went beyond being arrested. According to the director, the man's mother was called in attempt to embarrass him.
^ well said, no point in ruining transformers more than it already has been...just because it might make a ton of money doesn't mean it wins my acceptance, but if they wanna flash all the profits in my face then good for them, i gave up on this when i first heard shia leboufe was involved from the start
What an arrogant prick. Bay thinks they're Triads? Just because he had a piss poor English translation from the local paper? If they were in fact the Triads, there won't be just 5 people, and they definitely won't be wielding an AC machine over the shoulder dumbass. Get out of your multimillion dollar lifestyle and do some research into the real world idiot. Machetes, aluminum pipes, dog chains are the typical Triad weaponry. Guns, if they show mercy on you. And if they were Triads, Bay wouldn't be doing a TMZ live chat. It would be a poster in a police report for a missing person's case.

This was barely news when it actually occurred. Now...even less.
