Here's my argument on the subject. I vote truth. Here's why: Not even someone like Michael Bay, who basically thumbs his nose at all criticism (and thank goodness, or he'd never get anything done) can possibly stand against the political correctness machine. Once racial controversy is introduced, everybody is ready to drop association with it like a bag of hot bricks. I am glad the twins are gone, not because I think they're a racist creation (they aren't), but because of the mass reaction to it. That reaction coming mostly from white people who have only superficial or no contact with african americans. It's the source of contention, arguments and worse yet, it puts a layer of tarnish on a brand I love, the Transformers. So, I do think they're gone.
