Michael Bay Clarifies His Comment About the Rock Needing to Grow Up

It's a joke, people...
- Michael Bay wants y'all to chill out. As you know, the Pain & Gain director said in a video interview that The Rock needed to "grow up and stop wrestling 300 pound men" after missing the film's premiere due to his WrestleMania injury. Apparently that incensed some people, as Bay felt the need to address the situation on his official website, posting:
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.
The Rock and Triple H have both joked about Bay's comments today on Twitter.
