The Transformers live action movies have often courted controversy, and the upcoming Transformers Universe Bumblebee is unfortunately no exception. Bumblebee’s solo outing is currently filming in Vallejo, where a famous mural (pictured) has accidentally been painted over.
The Vallejo Times-Herald reports that the mural’s painting over was down to a miscommunication between the city and Paramount, with Paramount issuing a full apology as soon as they became aware of their mistake and pledging to restore the mural at their own expense. Vallejo Mayor Bob Sampayan is on record acknowledging the mistake, and praises Paramount for their transparency and commitment to making right on their mistake.
