"['Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' Director Michael Bay] has indicated to me that neither school gave permission to use their names," writes "nelson," the site administrator of Mr. Bay's official website.
"There was a very funny 'mom' scene were both [universities] felt it did not represent the school." The response from Mr. Bay was prompted by a message from the Facebook.com group "An Open Letter to Michael Bay from the University of Pennsylvania," which reads:
Princeton? Really? You HAD to shoot at the University of Pennsylvania and choose to have us 'play' Princeton? Shia couldn't have gone to UPENN? Join this group and ask Michael Bay to CGI the University of Pennsylvania (not Princeton) back into Transformers 2.
In an article we have previously reported on, Mr. Bay says his decision to shoot at Princeton was because the campus reminds him of his alma mater, Wesleyan University.
"I just love the look of the university," Mr. Bay told The Times.
