Ally Sheedy Calls out Golden Globes Winner James Franco in #MeToo Tweet

Ally Sheedy Calls out Golden Globes Winner James Franco in #MeToo Tweet

One of those people was Ally Sheedy, who tweeted from an unverified account.

But the film is more of a tribute that a takedown of its creator and star, and before you could say "Ed Wood", Franco invited Wiseau onstage to help accept the award.

Hugh Jackman appeared to be confused over James Franco's 2018 Golden Globes win for Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy for his performance in The Disaster Artist. Another mysterious tweet from Twitter user @Enty alluded to some other sexual misconduct by Franco. A user by the name of Violet Paley wrote, "Cute #TIMESUP pin James Franco. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo".

James Franco honored his promise to bring Wiseau as his guest to the award show and even brought him on stage after winning a Globe for his portrayal of the eccentric cult film figure in "The Disaster Artist".

According to Vanity Fair, Sheedy worked with Franco on the 2014 play "The Long Shrift". But there is nothing in her tweet that indicated she was referring to that experience.

In 2014, Franco made headlines when messages became public that showed he reportedly tried to arrange a meetup with a 17-year-old girl at a NY hotel. He had contacted the teen through Instagram after meeting her outside a Broadway show, contacted the teen through Instagram after meeting her outside his Broadway show. He allegedly later asked her where she was staying in NY and asked: "Should I rent a room?". Franco shut that down pretty quick, but it was probably the only way that moment could have gone. "I used bad judgement and I learned my lesson". I knew that he had high hopes. News began reporting that Sheedy had called out Franco.

Representatives for Franco and Slater did not immediately respond to TIME's request for comment.

When another user suggested to Tither-Kaplan that she had no right to complain about doing the nude scenes after she signed a contract, Tither-Kaplan responded that the Time's Up initiative is created to fight abuses of power by male directors and producers.
