Director Michael Bay cleared up any misconceptions about his earlier statements made towards Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in an E! Online interview at the world premier of "Pain & Gain".
The following statement was made by the official Michael Bay website, and set out by its Twitter account:
"Wrestling fans, it was a joke said on Entertainment Tonight–with a laugh. You can see the clip for yourselves. The most important person to see the on air joke was Dwayne. I love seeing The Rock wrestle. I hope he wrestles 10 more years. I joked on air because Dwayne was not at our LA premiere due to his injury."
