    German language interview with Bay (from Switzerland):
    «Diese Autos müssen zerstört werden

    Some tidbits:
    Over 500 cars were destroyed in the making of the movie, all of them damaged cars provided by insurance companies (most of them from floods) that had to be destroyed anyways.

    Direct quote (translated):

    Does Bay follow up with the truth if that line is, in fact, a mis-quote? If he is not willing to correct the mis-quote, he is letting it continue.

    The segment I quoted concludes the published interview.

    Alright. I have no reason to believe that it never happened if Bay was unwilling to set the record straight. Thanks, Nevermore.

    Rough IE Translation:

    What was actually going with Megan Fox? Is it true that she has known you as Hitler?
    Oh, Megan is a young woman, who liked a bit for unrest. I felt offended by nothing supposedly said. We are a family, we had a great time, but the people wonder why it is no longer of course.

    And what is off that Steven Spielberg wanted to have it himself due to the Hitler comparison from the film out?
    This is not true. This was a sound snippets from an interview that was taken out of context. But it went around the world. We were impressed by completely all, what this has thrown for waves. People seemed to care more than the film. And I find it a little difficult. (Tagesanzeiger.ch/news network)

    The six month gap between the comment and the firing was a pretty good indication that the Spielberg call was bogus.
