Michael Bay Walks Off Stage At Samsung CES Exhibition
Tuesday, January 7
(Las Vegas, NV) -- There were some awkward moments for "Transformers" director Michael Bay at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas Monday.
Bay experienced what some are describing as a "meltdown" after he abruptly walked off the stage during an introduction for Samsung's new 150-inch curved TV set. Bay began speaking, flubbed his lines mid-way during his speech, saying "the type was off." Sinking into silence after a moderator's prompt, Bay then apologized and walked off the stage. Samsung executive Joe Stinziano was left to take up for Bay and showcase the new TV. This week's CES tech expo is taking place at the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
