Why People Are Calling Out James Franco After the Golden Globes

James Franco stopped Tommy Wiseau from having his moment on stage at the 2018 Golden Globes, which left everyone asking: What epic wisdom was he going to share with the world?

In a series of cryptic tweets that have now been deleted, The Breakfast Club actress Ally Sheedy questioned why Franco was being celebrated at a ceremony where women's rights were being championed.

"James Franco just won". Sheedy did not include a specific allegation against Franco, and a spokesperson for Sheedy did not immediately respond to TIME's request for comment. "Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo".

Sheedy wasn't alone. Another woman tweeted a story about Franco assaulting her, and others recalled the time he tried to coerce a teenage girl into visiting his hotel room in 2014.

Others on Twitter found themselves discussing a different Franco-related topic, specifically the actor's attempt to hook up with a 17-year-old via social media. Some of the tweets focused on a 2014 incident in which Franco allegedly hit on a 17-year-old girl on Instagram.

In 2014, Franco made headlines when messages became public that showed he reportedly tried to arrange a meet-up with the fan at a NY hotel after she saw his show. Franco and the teen later connected on Instagram, and she told him she was "nearly 18".

In an interview on Live!

"I'm embarrassed, and I guess I'm just a model of how social media is tricky", Franco embarrassingly exclaimed. Franco mentioned his other pals, telling the viewers they "taught me to be a better director, a more responsible person". "Seventeen is legal in NY, but that being said, it's still pretty damn young", he said.

Franco spoke about Wiseau's inspiration: "I won't wait for Hollywood, I'll make my own movie", Franco quoted Wiseau as saying 19 years ago. He said, "When I went to NYU, I always said I wanted my own Coen brother, someone to collaborate with".
