Megan Fox Denies Being ''Preyed Upon'' By Michael Bay as Past Remarks Resurface https://t.co/qv3vdp1GWT— E! News (@enews) June 23, 2020
In a new statement, Fox responded to the internet's renewed interest in past comments she made about working with the director. Twitter users engaged with a resurfaced clip from a 2009 interview Fox gave Jimmy Kimmel.
Megan Fox says she's endured "genuinely harrowing experiences" as a woman in the entertainment industry, but they do not involve Michael Bay. The Transformers audition took place when she was between 19 and 20-years-old. Fox clarified that the audition did not take place at his home. Fox then thanked fans for their ongoing support.
"But these specific instances were inconsequential in a long and arduous journey along which I have endured some genuinely harrowing experiences in a ruthlessly misogynistic industry. There are many names that deserve to going viral in cancel culture right now, but they are safely stored in the fragmented recesses of my heart."
