Michael Bay has claimed that Steven Spielberg personally ordered for Megan Fox to be fired from the Transformers franchise.

The 25-year-old was replaced by Rosie Huntington-Whiteley in the upcoming Transformers: Dark of the Moon after publicly feuding with Bay.

The director has now alleged that Fox's comments of him behaving "like Hitler" was the final straw for Spielberg, who serves as executive producer of the Transformers series.

"You know the Hitler thing. Steven [Spielberg] said, fire her right now," he revealed to the Mail On Sunday.

Fox's former Transformers co-star Shia LaBeouf also appeared to back the decision in the wake of her axing, arguing: "She started s**t-talking our captain. Which you can't do."

Fox was also said to have angered Transformers crew members, who described her as "dumb as a rock" and "as ungracious a person as you can fathom".

Fox has always insisted that she left the Transformers franchise of her own accord.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon is released in US and UK cinemas on June 29.
