James Franco may get a kick out of his pansexual parodies of Kanye West, but his latest allegations involving a teenaged girl is no laughing matter.
Leaked images of a continual online conversation the Academy Award-nominated actor had with a 17-year-old Scottish girl were posted to Instagram competitor Imgur yesterday and they indicat the worst assumption.
During the alleged exchanged, Franco appeared to be increasing in thirst for the young gal’s untouched nectar pot once she revealed her age.
Reports Huffington Post:
In their conversation, Franco appears to ask the teen where she’s from, if she’s single and if she wants to meet up if he gets a hotel room, after being told she’s a few days shy of her 18th birthday. Franco and the teenage girl seem to have first crossed paths while the 35-year-old was signing autographs outside the Longacre Theatre, where he’s currently performing in “Of Mice and Men.” The teen tagged Franco in a photo she shared on Instagram, and it seems they began chatting from there. The girl also posted a video of Franco to her Instagram account, in which he explicitly asks her to tag him in the photo, presumably so they could connect afterward.
During the alleged conversation the teen was doubtful that she was talking to the real James Franco and requested that he write her name on a piece of paper and send her a photo of his face. Franco appears to have complied.
Request for comment from Franco’s rep has yet to be returned, however, after the images from the conversation leaked, the actor Instagramed a photo of himself with “WHY ARE YOU SO THIRSTY FOR UNDERAGE ONES,” written on it and tweeted, “I’M NOT! I HOPE PARENTS KEEP THEIR TEENS AWAY FROM ME. Thank you.” While the Instagram photo has since been deleted, the tweet still remains live on Franco’s account.
There is speculation that the entire ordeal may be an elaborate hoax to promote his new movie Palo Alto, which revolves around his high school teacher character’s R. Kelly relationship with one of his students but for now, law enforcement should tread carefully.
