: THIS is complete baloney.
Sounds like it, smells like it, must be. Nonetheless, if Bird's agent got him any kind of artistic power (and I know for a fact that his contract contained language precluding execs saying things like, "hey we need a cute little Jamaican robot to be Iron Giant's sidekick") and, he may have used his artistic guarantees to expose executive ineptitude. Given the choice between that and letting them kill it, I think he did the right thing (if the story is true).
