Did Megan Fox Deserve to Be Fired for Calling Michael Bay 'Hitler'?

In retrospect, trying to decide if Megan Fox was right for the first two "Transformers" is kind of like trying to decide if Keanu Reeves was right for "The Matrix."

It didn't really matter, did it?

Still, we were surprised to find out why Fox is no longer starring in the series. According to People magazine, director Michael Bay became incensed when he read that Fox was saying he "wanted to be like Hitler."

Even co-star Shia LeBeouf said she crossed the line.

"Criticism is one thing," [LeBeouf] told [GQ]. "Then there's public name-calling, which turns into high school bashing. Which you can't do. She started s----talking our captain."

People reports that Steven Spielberg even recommended Bay "fire her right now" for what she said.

    No, good for her! She's a terrible actress, but I applaud her analogy of Michael Bay. Of course, her firing was expected since likening one's boss to Hitler is not the way to go if you want to work. Shia should be fired as well for being, well, Shia.

    Hitler? What, is he killing a bunch of Jews? Not everything can be all perfect and plush for Megan Fox and it just makes me angry when a movie star expects things the way THEY want it done. She should've been fired earlier, she's an awful actress.

    Should we fire Spielberg for making the fictional "Schindler's List"? He can call people Nazis. No one else can?

    The Library Of Congress says that this was a fictional work.

    "Schindler's List" the movie is based on Thomas Keneally's book of the same name, is presented as a work of fiction, and indexed by the Library of Congress as such.

    "Schindler's List

    ‘This book is a work of fiction. Names, characters, places, and incidents are either products of the author's imagination or are used fictitiously. Any resemblance to actual events or locales or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental.’

    Library of Congress Cataloging-in-Publication Data

    Keneally, Thomas. Schindler's List."

    See how you have been duped?

    It was fictional, but it was also based on a true story. The Oskar Schindler article on wikipedia is a little tear-jerking.

    The basic story was real enough. They took some creative liberties to work around parts they didn't know or make it work better as a novel/movie.
  • Resp jimrthy... 2011/06/24 02:01:53

    But now we don't know if the entire story is dramatized! How can we trust any claim that this is genuine history? Why should we believe this now?

    You can ask the same questions about pretty much anything in the history books.

    The bulk of the actual story is about as well documented as anything else in history. The Jews believed enough of it that he's one of the most honored and respected people in their history.
  • Resp jimrthy... 2011/06/25 00:55:20

    But "Schindler's List" novel is portrayed as an actual historical event.

    The movie is used as a "guilt" tool against Germans...

    Calling your boss Hitler and making a movie based on a fictional book about the holocaust aren't even on the same spectrum.

    I'm sorry. I don't see what your are talking about. Who made up these rules of speech? Spielberg called Germans "Nazis"... it's ok when he does it?

    Why shouldn't we view this fictional movie as a slur and insult against the German people?
