Members of the Hong Kong Triads gang tried to extort money from another member of the crew of Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. We told you about Tranformers‘ action-hack director Michael Bay getting attacked in a similar extortion scheme last week. Supposedly two dudes attacked the shitty director and asked for $13,000. He claims he wasn’t bashed in the head with an AC unit as was originally reported. In this latest scheme the cops arrested one gang member and are looking for three more after they asked for money from a female member of the crew. It’s a common practice in the Hong Kong film world to give the Triads kickbacks for the honor of shooting on the streets of the city. The thing I don’t get is why they ask for so little?
These craptacular Transformers movies cost a shitload of money to make. They spend more than 13k on bagels every day. It shows how clueless the Triads are of their targets. This isn’t some low budget Hong Kong Kung Fu shoot’em up. This is a Michael Bay movie financed by Hollywood studios and Satan himself. C’mon, Triads, ask for something significant like $300,000 and the bare coochie shots of Megan Fox you know Michael Bay has somewhere in his collection.
