And i look forward to the day that you have to speak in front of hundreds of people and choke. But wait, your super human and you don't make mistakes. :roll:

It doesn't matter anyhow. Bay could run into a burning house and save family while on fire himself, and you'd still find something negative like..
"Oh wow, leave it to Bay to take jobs away from local fire fighters! What a despicable human being he is!"

And for what?... Because they don't like his style of movie making he's the devil in there eyes. No one here has ever meet him, but yet act like they've lived with him their whole lives. Really sad.

Not at all. I get that you don't like him. I just don't get why you and others need to tear the man down because of a technical error and he's just not the sort of human being who can stand up in public and improvise.

Seriously, yes it would have been planned out "Michael, just read the Teleprompter, you don't need to know anything else". Technical error and suddenly he's left high and dry. I really don't understand the criticism, it's simply unfair.

Just because he's a Hollywood Director does NOT make him infallible as some of the "Bayhaters" like to make him out to be.

I may not technically love his movies on TF, not Furman materiele, but his movies did elevate TF awareness beyond us fans.

Accomplishing that feat, he is still human prone to make mistakes.

Yeah, I very much doubt that I'm going to feel even the slightest bit of sympathy for a multi-millionnaire director who stumbled over a few lines and then walked off stage. Maybe if he accidentally killed a kitten.

It's widely known Bay eats dead kittens. It's part of his deal with the dark lord.

Now now, if you're going to tell a story tell the whole story. They have to be raw and left out to "breathe" for at least a week.
