Why do we get the robo-racists instead of Jazz?

    So, Jazz get's killed off. Badass in robot and car modes, cool personality, and generally just an awesome robot.
    HIS REPLACEMENT?
    The robo-racist twins.


    Can we switch this around for tf3?

    The robo-racists weren't even funny, they just pissed me off everytime they were on screen, yet Jazz makes me squee.


    WHY.

    WHYYYYY

    we got the "robot-racists" because most people aren't overly sensitive and found them pretty funny.

    I still don't understand why people say racist, when they are stereotypes.

    every review you've ready probably also thought the movie was terrible and plotless. but the people who actually watched and enjoyed the movie (enough to make $400 million dollars) seem to not mind so much. read some "reviews" from them. nearly EVERYONE in my theater, all three times i saw it, was laughing at those parts.

    Why are they "racist"? Cause they hated Decepticons?

    This makes no sense to me.

    That 200 million dollar opening weekend doesn't seem to care about the reviews :thumbs2: 

    And what exactly makes the twins racist in your opinion?

    exactly. as i have said many times, stereotypes exist because people behave like that. how is it racist to behave how real people behave?

    oh, and they couldn't read. yeah, neither could Bumblebee or Wheelie. they had to go to Jetfire.

    I find it interesting that so far, none of the black people I've talked to were offended by the Twins. Just personal experience, but it's interesting.

    What was racist about the Twins and Jazz? I didn't find anything racist about them.

    Good point about Bumblebee and Wheelie, I didn't take it that the Twins couldn't read anything, just that they couldn't read Cybertronian / The Language of The Primes.

    they acted like teenagers. i see them ever day around town. they were young bots that took their personality off of the web. i think it is an over reaction by some and not wanting to admit that that is how kids act and talk by others. you can't place it in a race because some white/black/hispanic/asian kids talk and act like that. just my opinion on the matter so take it for what it is worth.

    I hated the movie, but the twins didn't really bother me, and I really, REALLY disliked just the thought of them going in.

    It's quite obvious that the only way for any of the transformers to get screentime is if Bay himself creates them, so I say to hell with it, let him creat as many bad stereotypes as he wants, just give the bots more screentime. I've given up hope on ever getting a good movie out of him, so we might as well optimize the time that ILM is putting things onscreen than him.

    Good point man, i couldn't agree more the twins are obviously young and cant find there identity just yet so they took what they think is cool and emulate it. just like kids today when they think hip-hop,punk rock,pop artistes or actors and such are cool figures in society and they want to be like them. Just because they act more urban and talk a certain way dose not make then racist or anything...people who see that kinda shit as offensive need to grow the fuck up and check the damn calendar and see its 2009 not 1949......

    I'd say the Twins were a lame attempt at humor, not a racial thing. But Jazz is simply too much cool for 1 movie, that's why he was killed, and never brought back. The common public isn't ready for him.

    A haitian buddy of mine from work loved them. Thought they were the best characters from the entire movie. So yeah, I don't understand this whole racist BS we keep hearing about. As many have said, it's a stereotype, not racism.

    No offense to Jazz but Sideswipe is way better. If Sideswipe and Jazz were in the same movie together.... every movie goers head would simply pop from the awsomeness...........POP :D
