Because Michael Bay is a hack of a director and he has the mental capabilities of an immature 13 yr old boy. So being such, he thought it would have been funny and didn't think of it being offensive to some people.

I believe they were added for a younger audience as comedic relief.

They were in no way racist.


That's pretty much it. Michael Bay, the writers, the producers, the animators & voice actors - they have no other agenda other than to make an entertaining film. Bay has worked repeatedly with Will Smith & Martin Lawrence, and I've never heard of any troubles with Tyrese Gibson or Cuba Gooding in the past - he's no racist. I know the large group of kids I watched it with in the theatre giggled & laughed at Skids & Mudflap's buffoonery. At the end of the day, they are NOT BLACK; THEY ARE ALIENS. Now like Jazz, they're developed a liking for what they see as hip culture and have modeled themselves on such to 'blend in better' with earthlings, I guess. They may sound like a couple of gangsta fools from South Central, but they're still heroic & get the job done when called upon.
When I was a kid in the 1980's, I didn't watch Transformers and think Jazz & Blaster were ghetto stereotypes - I just thought they were cool characters, and I liked Scatman Crothers voice work. But now we're at the stage in society where Porky Pig & Speedy Gonzales are politically incorrect, and films like 'Tropic Thunder' get flak for supposedly making fun of the retarded.
Sure, the film could have been fine without those characters acting like that. But it's not the problem the media is making it to be.

Eh I wasn't a big fan. I was reminded of Jar Jar... However, they were better than the robot humping action and the thong shot.

I agree. The Twins were funny and it wasn't racist.

Why would Bay see any of this coming... He wanted to have some comic relief in this film and he achieved that with these characters.

he should have seen this coming because some black people can be VERY touchy about these things. that's why. it stupid and dumb and narrowminded but that's how they are.

Wheelie's always been an annoying little shit, ever since the The Animated Movie. I did think it was clever to bring him back, though.

The twins were fvcking annoying as hell and they occupied WAY too much screen time. I swear, they were on screen more than Optimus; that pissed me off. Whenever they said anything, it was like I could feel myself losing brain cells. I looked over to my friend whenever something extremely moronic was said in the film and we both just shook our heads as if to say "did they really think this was a good idea?" Needless to say, we were doing that for the majority of the film. What a piece of dumb, glossy, explosiony garbage this movie was!

You know, for all the bad ink generated by so many critics over this 'issue', where is Al Sharpton & the NAACP? They're usually all over these things like hair on a cat. (I don't remember them going after George Lucas for Jar Jar Binks, either.)
But when a movie like 'Bruno' gets criticized by GLAAD for gay stereotypes, those same critics blasting ROTF - like Peter Travers of Rolling Stone - are heaping praise on Sacha Baron Cohen and his 'comedic genius.'
Do I sense hypocrisy?
I remember the days when Italian American lobby groups would attack films like 'Goodfellas' , calling it a smear on their culture, but most critics hail it as the Best Film Of The Year. So what is their agenda, really?
