When the attendees at this past weekend’s ceremony wore black as a silent movement to stand together against sexual harassment – as well as wearing a pin that read “Time’s Up” – one actor’s efforts to join in was not taken lightly.
Actress Violet Paley tweeted her distaste with James Franco wearing the pin, considering he had committed acts that the whole movement is against.
Another actress named Sarah Tither-Caplan, also tweeted at James saying:
Breakfast Club star Ally Sheedy shared a number since-deleted tweets directed at James that read, “James Franco just won. Please never ask me why I left the film/TV business,” adding “Why is a man hosting? Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much.”

James has yet to follow-up on these accusations.
