TRANSFORMERS 4 Set Hit With Second Extortion Attempt In Hong Kong

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Dear Hong Kong triad gangsters: Michael Bay is not going to give you money. Stop asking.

Just last week the story broke that Michael Bay had been assaulted on the Hong Kong set of Transformers 4 by two men demanding money, an assault later confirmed by police to be an extortion attempt carried out by men with known gang ties. And it's happened again, with Hong Kong police confirming that a crew member was approached on a rooftop by four men who "intimidated her and asked for money". One of the four - again, with known gang ties - has been arrested with police looking for the other three.

    china sucks. end of story.

    Kind of funny. The production is only there for the Chinese money involved (potential or otherwise), and the Chinese gangsters have shown up for what they perceive to be the American money involved. I suppose this is what happens when you do things purely for money's sake - you'll draw everyone else who is motivated by this, too.
