James Franco showed up at the 2018 Golden Globes in a sleek black suit and wearing a ‘Time’s Up’, in support of the anti sexual harassment movement that is sweeping Hollywood.
The actor even picked up an award for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for his role in ‘The Disaster Artist’.
Sounds like a pretty good night for Franco, except that he got called out by multiple women on social media immediately after the awards show – all of whom are alleged victims of Franco’s sexual misconduct.
Hey James Franco, nice #timesup pin at the #GoldenGlobes , remember a few weeks ago when you told me the full nudity you had me do in two of your movies for $100/day wasn't exploitative because I signed a contract to do it? Times up on that!

Cute #TIMESUP pin James Franco. Remember the time you pushed my head down in a car towards your exposed penis & that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17? After you had already been caught doing that to a different 17 year old?

James Franco, who said he has ‘heard’ about these allegations, decided to clarify things when he appeared on ‘The Late Show’ with Stephen Colbert. According to Franco, all those allegations about his are “not accurate”.
“I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long, so I don’t want to shut them down in any way,” Franco said. “I think it’s a good thing and I support it.”
