Clearly even if you think your boss acts like a tyrant, you shouldn’t go around saying it out loud, to the press, by comparing him to one of biggest monsters in modern history. Transformers 3: Dark of The Moon director Michael Bay recently told The Daily that Megan Fox’s firing came at the behest of executive producer Steven Spielberg following some unflattering comparisons to the dictator. “‘You know the Hitler thing,’ Steven (Spielberg) said,” Bay explained, describing their conversation. “‘Fire her right now.’” To be clear, this is what any boss would do if he or she heard you calling him or her Hitler in public, which is why you save it for those panicky phone calls to your best friend you make from the unisex bathroom. Common sense, people!
Apparently Megan Fox’s Hitler comments came when the actress was already cast in the third film across from Shia LeBeouf, as part of a very ill-advised interview with British magazine Wonderland. In the article Fox described Bay as being “like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation … he wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is.” Rosie Huntington-Whitley subsequently replaced Fox, who hopefully just writes down all her hateful thoughts about Michael Bay in her journal before immediately feeding them into the shredder and sprinkling them with old coffee grounds.
