Let's, for a second, take the fact that Fox's acting is subpar and remove it from the context of this discussion. Now, let's instead focus on an issue that has been largely poo-poo'ed in any discussions that have occured about Fox's firing here, on TFW - the fact that Megan Fox called out Michael Bay for doing what would, honestly, border on sexual misconduct in any regular workplace. Here is an article written on Jezebel, a site whose second title is 'Celebrity, Sex and Fashion for Women' on Fox's departure (different camps will call it a firing vs. a willful decision to leave.) Megan Fox And The Consequences Of Speaking Out Now, look. One way or another, there is a prevailing fact here - Megan Fox spoke out against Michael Bay. The reports have been varied (he had her try on dresses in front of other actors/staff, he had her fake & bake to get that crispy orange tan, etc.) but the one fact remains - she called him out on it. The dominant perspective that I've gleaned from this site seems to be "Aw, FUCK THAT BITCH. If she can't handle the heat that's Michael Bay, she needs to get the hell out of the movie-making kitchen!" I'm going to go out on a limb here and assume that that's largely a male perspective (as, again, I'm assuming most of the folks weighing in with this opinion are male.) ...but if we willingly remove the armchair machismo from the Fox vs. Bay issue, we're left with one unavoidable fact - Fox called Bay on what is, in any other workplace, usually considered sexual harrasssment. Does that make Megan Fox a "bitch," in your opinion, or an empowered woman who was intelligent enough to say "I'm not taking this bullshit?"
