    Just seeing THE ROCK without any of the Ed Harris moments could instill this reaction.

    I think they just wanted a refund.

    I wonder, did the assailant say "GIVE ME YOUR FACE!" while he was swinging the air conditioner?

    While I'm glad Bay wasn't seriously hurt I wish an explosion had somehow been involved.

    Seeing ARMAGEDDON without the Liv Tyler moments would NOT have instilled this reaction. That film's in the Criterion Collection for a reason.

    If someone were to criticize Michael Bay movies for racist, imperialist or misogynist propaganda, people like this would be up in arms. But because they don't like Michael Bay movies, they are pleased at physical violence against him.

    Yes, I see the tongue in the cheek. But hanging a lantern on it doesn't really change anything.

    Rumor has it that he got ruffed up by a "business man" because Bay failed to pay for his female companionship...

    BTW, how the hell does one swing an air conditioner? I guess those must be substantially lighter/smaller than the models I'm familiar with.

    I will officially state my position as being AGAINST random violence directed at Michael Bay.

    They should have just approached him and calmly requested a refund for all the horrible movies he made them sit through just like everybody else.

    And honestly, I think the misogyny in Michael Bay films is just a side effect of really, really terrible writing. They don't mean to be misogynist, they're just that completely incompetent at writing lines for females.

    I would hope that anyone, even the most rabid Bay-movie-hater, would be against such violence. You can hate a director's work, but no sane person would want that director to be attacked and beaten just because you don't like him.

    He should make a movie about making movies in HK

    "He didn't like my answer, so an hour later he came by my crew as we were shooting, carrying a long air conditioner unit. He walked right up to me and tried to smack my face, but I ducked, threw the air unit on the floor and pushed him away. That's when the security jumped on him. But it took seven big guys to subdue him. It was like a zombie in Brad Pitt's movie "World War Z" - he lifted seven guys up and tried to bite them. He actually bit into one of the guards Nike shoe! Insane. [...] Then it took fifteen Hong Kong cops in riot gear to deal with these punks. In all, four guys were arrested for assaulting the officers."

    Upon watching a play which had a live baby elephant with a walk-on part, where it managed to shit copiously across the stage, a wit observed "disgusting manners, but what a critic!"

    You have waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much faith in humanity. :)

    Of course we Star Trek fans should hold ourselves to a higher standard.
