Over the years, Megan Fox has always been caged by Mikaela Banes’ persona in Transformers. She’s the s*xy girl everyone wants but can’t have. This public perception of her has often allegedly affected her career as well because of the kind of roles she was offered. That’s not all.
It was even alleged that Transformers director Michael Bay had exploited her and then kicked her out of the franchise when she had spoken up about it, jokingly, in an interview. Turns out it has affected her real life too. So Fox recently went all guns blazing when a Republican Party politician tried to interfere in her personal life.
Megan Fox Hits Back At Republican Party’s Robby Starbuck
Robby Starbuck of the Republican Party tweeted that Megan Fox was forcing her sons to wear girly clothes and dresses. He wrote that at least two of her sons had a breakdown because of it. Starbuck called it child abuse. Here’s the tweet:
These are Megan Fox’s sons. We used to live in the same gated community and our kids played at the park. I saw 2 of them have a full on breakdown saying they were forced by their mom to wear girls clothes as their nanny tried to console them. It’s pure child abuse. Pray for them. pic.twitter.com/k3ULKG7fFm

Megan Fox hit back at the politician in an Instagram post where she posted his tweet. She rebuked his claims and said that Starbuck was just after his 15 minutes of fame for his political campaign, but she wouldn’t give him any. Fox wrote:
“Irregardless [sic] of how desperate you may have become at any given time to acquire wealth, power, success or fame – never use children as leverage or social currency. Especially under malevolent and erroneous pretense. Exploiting my child’s gender identity to gain attention in your political campaign has put you on the wrong side of the universe. I have been burned at the stake by insecure, narcissistic, impotent little men like you many times and yet I’m still here. You f***ed with the wrong witch.”
Here’s the post:
Previously, Fox had revealed that her son Noah prefers wearing dresses, and she lets him. The actress also encouraged him to be confident to do what he likes.

Megan Fox Revealed Her Son’s Preference For Dresses And How She Supported Him
In a 2019 interview on The Talk, Megan Fox revealed that her son Noah likes dresses, so he wears them sometimes. However, she also said that he gets mocked for what he wears, but she teaches him to be confident. The Jennifer’s Body actress said:
“I send him to a really liberal, like hippy school. But even there, here in California, he still has little boys going like, ‘Boys don’t wear dresses,’ or ‘Boys don’t wear pink.’… He just wore [a dress] two days ago to school, and he came home, and I was like, ‘How was it? Did any of the friends at school have anything to say?’”

Her son had said, “Well, all the boys laughed when I came in. I don’t care, I love dresses too much.” Also, regarding Robby Starbuck’s claims, even Fox’s ex-husband, Brian Austin Green, with whom she has her three sons, Noah Shannon Green, Bodhi Ransom Green, and Journey River Green, debunked them.
He told TMZ:
“It’s a totally bogus story. There are only a few people in their world that can actually verify whether or not a story like this is true, and I can tell you with absolute certainty it is not. This person trying to claim this is true is a perfect example of someone with selfish motives that does not care about negatively affecting a parent-child relationship.”
As such, it’s possible that Robby Starbuck really was making an issue out of nothing to further his political campaign.
