Transformers Movie Has Racist Stereotypes?

The new movie, "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen," is taking fire for a pair of supporting characters, illiterate Chevy hatchbacks named Skids and Mudflap (one of whom apparently has a gold tooth), who are being called "racist caricatures."

According to ABC News, Director Michael Bay has responded to this criticism by saying, "It's done in fun. I don't know if it's stereotypes — they are robots, by the way."

Jar Jar Binks is said by friends to be insulted and angered by the faux naivete of Mr. Bay's response.
