Megan Fox is April O’Neill… deal with it folks, cos it’s happening.
Is what Megan Fox should probably have said when she talked to Cinema Blend about the role, but she went for the more, em, adult approach.
Asked how she felt about the backlash, she immediately went on the defensive and said: “Let me tell you something about those people. How much money did Transformers 4 make? Exactly. Those people can complain – they all go to the theater. They’re gonna love it – and if they don’t love it, they can f#@k off, and that’s the end of that.”
Now, ever since her casting was announced in February, the fans have done nothing but shout and complain and, right or wrong, it’s possible Fox is just at breaking point over the whole thing… but when TNMT co-creator Peter Laird has openly said he didn’t like her in the role, it is possible she’s had enough.
But, suggesting your fan base “F#@k off” is probably never the best idea… time will tell if she’ll suffer for that choice of words…
