Save the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles From Michael Bay.

Yesterday we reported that Michael Bay has decided to re-envision the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in his new movie as aliens which kind of kills the whole mutant part.  We were stumped, a bit perplexed and also now convinced us that Bay has an alien fetish.  Devin Norris has taken to Change.org to petition to save the Turtles and return them to the mutants we grew up with.  The goal is 10,000 signatures.

Norris pleads:

If you care about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, or the sheer audacity of this ridiculous man enrages you like it does me, then PLEASE sign. If this movie is made there will sequels, spin-off shows, and toys. This blight on our childhood WILL endure if we let it.

Bay has responded to the outrage on his forum.

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.

Take action now!  Damn the man.  Save the Turtles!
