Why People Are Calling Out James Franco After the Golden Globes
Jan 09, 2018, 00:40
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".

"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".
