Things you cannot say

On the internet, comparing to Hitler is so common it is known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies.

Yahoo reports that is why Megan Fox was fired from "Transformers 2":
According to a new Michael Bay oral history in GQ, Bay says Fox was booted by the direct order of Sir Spielbergo (who helped produce the movie).

"She was in a different world, on her BlackBerry. You gotta stay focused. And you know, the Hitler thing. Steven [Spielberg] said, 'Fire her right now.'"

"The Hitler thing" was Fox saying Bay ran his movie sets "like Hitler," which probably didn't sit well with Spielberg. It's a shame: She should have just run with her Napoleon comparison, which is far more apt, save for the height issue.
What height issue? Adolf Hitler's height was 5 ft 8 in (173 cm), and Napolean was 5 ft 7 in tall. Both were about the same height as Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise.
