James Franco is being called out on Twitter for hypocrisy over “Time’s Up” pin

At last night’s Golden Globes, James Franco accepted the award for best lead actor in a comedy for The Disaster Artist. He stepped onstage dressed in black, donning a “Time’s Up” pin as a nod to the movement led by hundreds of Hollywood women in hopes of supporting those who need legal help in addressing issues of sexual harassment and assault.

Now, Twitter is calling out Franco but his own alleged abusive behavior and having the nerve to wear the pin in the first place.

The criticism and calling out of Franco began last night with Breakfast Club actress Ally Sheedy sending some cryptic tweets that she later deleted.

“Franco just won,” she said. “Please never ever ask my why I left the film/tv business.” Earlier, she tweeted about Franco and Christian Slater being at a table together, along with the “metoo” hashtag, suggesting. She also questioned why a man was hosting and why Franco was allowed into the show in the first place.

Sheedy worked with the actor on the off-Broadway production of “The Long Shrift” back in 2014, the same year that Franco came under fire for trying to hook up with a 17-year-old girl on Instagram, sending her repeated private messages where he asked how old she was. He continued hitting on her, sending photos of himself as proof of his identity, even after learning she was only 17 at the time.
