    okay so what i dont understand is: he isnt directly saying the accusations arent true and he isnt in a rush to defend himself. so is he sticking up for women rights like im praying he is and being the good human i thought he was or did he actually do that stuff and just isn't even denying it bc if thats true id be sad

    1:20 - I think Seth Meyers kinda sucker punched him here. He doesn’t know the entire story, but he asked the questions in a way to purposely put Franco on the spot & implied that he was guilty of the accusations.

    Yesterday I was at six flags with five other people and we were at a table near a Johnny Rockets. We saw someone that looked like James but we didn't know until we heard his voice. My cousin smiled at him but he gave her a disgusted look for some reason. When we were walking through the park after that two or three of the other people with me saw James walking with his arm around a girl's waist. I just assumed it was his girl friend when they told me, but when I searched up his girl friend, they said that the girl didn't look like the one in the picture. We realized that he could've been cheating or something, but we honestly don't know

    Men should not be supporting me too and times up, because clearly it backfires. This is a good example of that. Many of us, as women have had negative experiences but so what? We need to act like the strong women we claim to be.

    I admired the #MeToo movement but over the course of time, I've come to hate it because I'm starting to suspect that some people are using the #MeToo movement just to screw people over. Especially, people in the public eye. They're literally easy targets because regardless of whether it's true or not, they will be scrutinized by the public and their reputation could be tarnished. While, the people tweeting can simply say anything without consequence. It's cowardice.

    There’s a certain group of predators, those who literally harass you sexually and those like James here, who are being accused of doing these things.
    I feel like some women are literally misunderstanding the word and it’s meaning. If a man accidentally touches you on your body (private parts excluded) I’d said it’s not sexual harassment, and especially when they apologize for doing so immediately and never do it again.
    Some good guys have lost their reputation because women use this term in their favor, and that’s not good.
    Example: Liam Neeson named someone in an interview, who accidentally touched a girl on the back, with the girl’s top being open in the back, so afterwards this guy apologizes a few times, and even emails the girl apologizing again in which she says it’s nothing, but some time later he gets a phone call from his lawyer saying that she accused him of sexual harassment. That is wrong and should not be happening. There are in reality people who have been harassed and it’s torture to them, and some of these women misguide the media. I hope they learn from their mistakes and take this issue more serious

  • Elwood Scott

    I love James Franco, but this seemed like a total cop out. He says the tweets are "not accurate" which is an interesting choice of words because it skirts the line between "lying" and "difference of perspective". Then Seth brings it around as a "difference of perspective" but neither elaborate on it at all, Franco just explains why he's being noble by not having an alibi or a good defense, or even an explanation of what happened or why. He wants the good PR of being part of the solution, but when pressed on the allegations he just mumbles his way through these BS excuses and doesn't really talk about anything. Like I said, I love James Franco, which is why I'm so disappointed about this. We all know he's no stranger to sketchy behavior after sexting that teenager on instagram, and he apologized for that, I guess, only because he got caught. Take a page out of Dan Harmon's book; own up to your mistakes, and apologize.

    From the article in LA Times:
    "In some cases, they said they believed Franco could offer them career advancement, and acquiesced to his wishes even when they were uncomfortable."
    So, they did what they did to advance their own careers. Now they're probably pissed because they are not rich and famous. How about women start taking full responsibility of their actions as well? Don't "reluctantly consent" and whine about it later. Refuse whatever it is you're not comfortable with when it happens. Also, why are all these #metoo women releasing allegations publically before taking it to court? Unfortunately a lot of dumb people will take allegations at face value and ignore the outcome of a trial, even if the accusee is acquitted.

    Watch out, you're guilty until proven innocent when a woman accuses you.

  • What the f*ck did you just say?

    it's not all one sided... some of these cunts want to hurt some of these guys and destroy their careers and also they are using the actual abuse from some of these women to try and shame men for consensual interactions in which they were "offended" or rejected

    False accusations should be punished to the highest degree! Give them double the punishment of the alleged crime and drag every false accuser to court for slander if they use twitter or other social media to accuse someone without any prove and without official charges!

But look im also great because of this' , and didn't even answer the question. Obviously he doesnt want to talk about this

  • Amanda WingZ
    Amanda WingZ 3 months ago

    He's probably not really answering the questions because he's tired. He wore the pin to show support. It was called out as being hypothetical. News flash so wasn't Justin Timberlake and all he did was wear the pin and star in a Woody Allen movie. Are you fucking serious? This has become such a witch hunt. Attentions seekers are overshadowing the real victims and the real culprits. As a woman I am so exhausted by just hearing it all. Everyone seems to jump on bandwagons. I feel now Hollywood has jumped to the gun control wagon. Next month something else. These are fads. These topics are important and I feel too many people feed off the hype then lose interest fast and no resolutions are made
