    News from The Associated Press

    Well I have no intention of seeing this movie anyway. However it seems there is some controversy going on with the twin Autobots. Definately not the Skids I know. Another poor attempt at adding humor IMHO.

    I thought Herp and Derp were unnecessary and never did anything important. They should have gotten eaten by Devastator.

    Definitely not the Skids I know too.

    The Skids in ROTF had a personality.

    Somewhere G1 Skids is crying because of how true this is... and nobody noticed because he's not in this episode.

    Nah, G1 Skids is happy because at least one iteration of him gets noticed.

    people need togrow up and get a damn life and worry about shit that matters o say like North Korea

    they were hilarious and bad ass at the same time
    was awsome when mudflap ripped through someones throat and started ripping it a new ass.

    Oh for god sake, another "racist robot" thread.

    They are obviously young bots who haven't figured out too much and aint too bright. They come to a alien planet and do a search and the way they are they sympathized with hip-hopesque type of speaking. Just like Ironhide liked Clint Eastwood apparently as he quoted it in the first movie.

    Don't blame the robots....blame Google.

    I heard on the news the NAACP was trying to meet with Paramont over the issue. I remember the big fuss that was made over the Gremlins in the 80s....Here we go again.

    I being of African descent personally found nothing offensive about the twins. What was projected on the screen is in no way a sorry poor representation of what I act like. Because I don't "ACT" as such.

    I'm sorry the only way the twins should have offended you is if Lil Wanye is your end all be all iconic hero.
