If you aren’t terribly excited about Transformers: Age of Extinction, then you aren’t alone as Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari is less than enthusiastic about the fourth Transformers flick as well. Maybe you’ve vented about Hollywood putting out yet another Transformers movie on your social media account, but it’s probably a safe bet that your mini rant didn’t quite garner the same reaction as Ansari’s comment on Twitter.
Just a little more than a week after Transformers: Age of Extinction took the box office by storm and had the best opening weekend of the year with $100 million in domestic ticket sales, Ansari got on his Twitter account and accused Transformers fans of making the world worse (when it comes to movies, that is).
Check out Aziz Ansari’s tweet on Transformers 4 below.
With all due respect, people of China, stop seeing Transformers so much, you're making movies worse for everyone!

No surprise there, but quite a few folks found themselves in agreement with Ansari. After all, the box office this summer has been all about the sequel, which may be getting a little old for some people. (Seriously, how many X-Men and Spider-Man movies can they make?)
Think I'll have to agree with Aziz Ansari on these 'Transformers' movies … gotta stop. http://t.co/JjgFrKc19j

And while we saw more people supporting Aziz Ansari’s anti-Transformers post than not, there was a select group of people that didn’t quite see eye to eye with the funny man:

Aziz Ansani criticizes #Transformers and yet he forgets he was in 30 Minutes Or Less

In the meantime, when Aziz Ansari isn’t busy ruffling feathers by ragging on Transformers movies on Twitter, the comedian made an appearance on the latest episode of the Jerry Seinfeld web show Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which you can check out here.
