James Franco Adamantly Denies All Sexual Misconduct Allegations Made Against Him

Last Sunday night James Franco won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for the Disaster Artist, but simultaneously took an L or several as multiple women came forward on social media to accuse him of sexual misconduct.

Several women began tweeting about how Franco had no right to wear the “Time’s Up” pin symbolizing the fight for gender equality that was donned by so many on the red carpet. The actress Ally Sheedy, with whom he worked on an Off Broadway play, was one of these women, writing in a since-deleted tweet that Franco was an example of “why I left the film/tv business.”

Another was actor Violet Paley, who accused Franco of sexual misconduct in a series of tweets, as well as a third woman who came forward to share her claims. Paley— who has appeared in several shows and shorts over the last few years — first tweeted directly at Franco, writing “remember the time you pushed my head down in a car towards your exposed penis?”

She also claimed that he invited her 17-year-old friend to meet him in his hotel room around the same time as that whole ‘Lucy’ fiasco. She later clarified she herself wasn’t underage when the exposed-penis incident happened, and promised “there are a lot more details that will be out soon” concerning Franco’s sexual misconduct.

Sarah Tither-Kaplan is another woman who made accusations against Franco on Twitter. Tither-Kaplan, whose bio reads ‘filmmaker/actor’ wrote that Franco had her do full nudity in his films for $100 a day while assuring her this rate wasn’t exploitative:
