I've watched all the behind-the-scenes extras of just about all of his movies plus interviews with him and people who worked with him and to me he really doesn't seem like a douchebag at all. Infact, I get the opposite vibe from him. He seems funny on set, and really you can't blame him for getting pissed off when something doesn't go the right way during filming. I admire his dedication to making a film too, which isn't something to frown apon. Granted, Bay isn't the best director, but he might be one of the coolest in my opinion. Just because his movies aren't that great (Entertaining but not something everyone must see) doesn't mean he's an A-hole. I think people are getting him confused with Uwe Boll perhaps lol.
