Michael Bay clarified on his official website about the remarks he made towards Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson needing to “grow up and stop wrestling 300 pound men.”
“Wrestling fans, it was a joke said on Entertainment Tonight–with a laugh. You can see the clip for yourselves. The most important person to see the on-air joke was Dwayne. I love seeing The Rock wrestle. I hope he wrestles 10 more years. I joked on air because Dwayne was not at our LA premiere due to his injury.”
Here is footage from the red carpet at the premiere of Pain & Gain where Bay made his comments.
