Remember yesterday when Michael Bay tried, once again, to ruin our childhoods by announcing that his Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were going to be aliens? Well that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle fan outrage caused Michael Bay to respond. In case you didn’t have your mind blown yesterday. At a recent Nickelodeon event, Bay had this to say:
Ummmmm, what? Aliens? Everyone, and I mean everyone, knows they are mutants. Transformed by ooze. And trained bySplinter to be Ninja Teens. NOT ALIENS!
In an effort to stop the complete fanboy/nerd rage, Bay went on his blog and posted this:
Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script. Our team is working closely with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles to help expand and give a more complex back story. Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world.
I believe he said something like this before he took a big crap on Transformers.
