Yesterday, a quote from the Miami Herald inferred that Bay was actually apologizing for Armageddon which, of course, makes no sense. The first rule of Michael Bay clearly states: “I don’t change my style for anybody. Pussies do that.” Besides, if he were to apologize for any of his films it would have to be Pearl Harbor.

Bay jacked on to the Michael Bay Interzone to clear up the confusion:
One press writer has gone too far in reporting false information. He has printed the bare minimum of my statement which in effect have twisted my words and meaning. I’m not in the slightest going to apologize for the third movie in my movie career, a film called Armageddon. On the red carpet for Pain & Gain some reporters asked me what are you apologizing for, and I said what on earth are you talking about?

What I clearly said to the reporter, is I wish I had more time to edit the film, specifcally the the third act. He asked me in effect what would you change if you could in your movies if you could go back. I said, I wish we had a few more weeks in the edit room on Armageddon. And still today Armageddon, is still one of the most shown movies on cable TV. And yes, I’m proud of the movie. Enough said.


Great. So we're clear. Michael Bay only wishes he'd had more time to work on the THIRD act of Armageddon. The rest of the film is perfect, especially the scene with Eddie Griffin that is in no way racist or out-of-touch with human behavior. Also, Armageddon is on television a lot so all arguments against it are invalid. It's Worthington's Law:
