Director Michael Bay posted the following message to fans of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on his official fan page:
“Fans need to take a breath, and chill. They have not read the script. Our team is working closely with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles to help expand and give a more complex back story. Relax, we are including everything that made you become fans in the first place. We are just building a richer world.
The post came as a response to Internet fans’ reaction to Bay’s comments during the recent Nickelodeon Upfront, first reported here.
