The problem is, that the Twins don't really DO anything. They do their black stereotypical **** and never anything else. The human characters rarely if ever acknowledge their presence or interact with them. And they just sort of disappear in and out of the plot.
If Bay wants to put in some fun characters for the kids that's fine. But it could have something to do with the actual story. Look at MOE in WallE. Not to mention he already stuffs the Wheelie and Doctor characters in here that serve similar purposes, and Wheelie is more or less a plot device that gets jettisoned in the third act.
Having seen the movie myself also, I didnt find them terrible, or racist, and they get their hero moment against Devastator. Not to mention they inadvertently find the tomb of the Prime's. They hardly did nothing.
