James Franco Becomes the Next Man in Hollywood to be Accused of Sexual Harassment

in Scandals by

Well James Franco has become the latest man to be accused of sexual harassment and there are now 5 women total that have come forward with allegations about Franco’s lewd behavior. Each of the female accusers attended Franco’s acting school, Studio 4. The women’s stories have been collaborated by multiple sources but Franco denies the women’s allegations.

The first allegations came out on Twitter after Franco won Best Actor for his portrayal of Tommy Wiseau in the The Disaster Artist. As the actor came up to accept his speech, eagle-eyed viewers noticed that Franco was wearing a Time’s Up pin in solidarity of the movement to help end sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood. For some women, this caused some anger. Sarah Tither-Kaplan was one of those women.

Tither-Kaplan was a student of Franco’s at the acting school and is one of the 5 women who are accusing Franco of sexual harassment. She took to her Twitter account and blasted out tweets that expressed her disgust with Franco.

Tither-Kaplan then did an interview with The LA Times where she elaborated her claims. She told the publication that, “I feel there was an abuse of power, and there was a culture of exploiting non-celebrity women, and a culture of women being replaceable.” She said that there was a particular incident that really upset her among other women at the acting school. She recounted a time where she was filming an on-screenorgy scene with both Franco and other women. She said that he removed protective plastic guards covering other actresses’ vaginas while simulating oral sex on them. The experience scarred Tither-Kaplan.

A second woman, Violet Paley, also used her Twitter account to express her disgust with Franco wearing the Time’s Up pin. She tweeted, “Cute 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?”

Paley said told The LA Times that she and Franco has a consensual relationship but that there was a particular incident that happened that made her very uncomfortable. She said, “I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out. I got really nervous, and I said, ‘Can we do this later?’ He was kind of nudging my head down, and I just didn’t want him to hate me, so I did it.” She then got out of the situation by telling Franco that she saw someone watching from another car.

Franco’s attorney, Michael Plonsker, has disputed the women’s claims. Franco appeared on the Late Night with Seth Meyers and when asked about the tweets he said, “The [tweets] I read were not accurate. But one of the things I’ve learned is that this is a conversation that obviously needs to be had. There are people, women and others, who have not been a part of this conversation. And I truly believe they need to be part of this conversation. So that’s why I was wearing the pin and I support that.”


Teen Mom 2 Dad, Nathan Griffith Banned from Gym for Fat-Shaming

Nathan-Fat-Shames-trainer-at-golds-gym In news that doesn’t surprise anyone, Teen Mom 2 dad Nathan Griffith has been banned from his happy place, Gold’s Gym, because he sent out a Snapchat to his fans that cruelly fat-shamed a trainer at the gym. Immediately after he snapped the photo and posted it, fans were fast to call him out on his behavior and were quick to contact the local gym where he works out. The fans called for quick justice for Nathan’s bullying behavior.

Nathan is no stranger to bad press. Every year he seems to have a new mugshot or to be in trouble with the law. He has been arrested numerous times for domestic violence and even for a DUI. This man is the epitome of bad decisions. His latest appalling mistake is par for the course for Nathan. Last week during one of his workouts, Nathan took a photo of a Gold Gym’s trainer as she was working with a client. He then posted that photo to Snapchat with the caption, “When the trainer is fat than her client with no muscles.”

Obviously grammar is not Nathan’s speciality but apparently bullying is. Fans noticed the snap immediately and took the to the internet to find the local Gold’s Gym that Nathan attends and flooded the gym’s Twitter page with comments and concerns about Nathan’s post. Gold’s Gym originally tweeted out that they are aware of the incident and are investigating it. Soon the gym issued a statement and they also agreed that this incident was appalling. “We have a zero-tolerance policy for this behavior. This person’s membership has been terminated,” the gym tweeted out. Fans applauded the move and commended Gold’s Gym on standing up to a bully.

Nathan has yet to comment, but this will most likely greatly upset him. During a particularly memorable episode, Nathan and Jenelle got into an argument and Nathan stated that gym time is his “me time” so no doubt this banishment will upset him. Kudos to Gold’s Gym for standing up to Nathan. This guy has a known history of bullying people and even though he keeps getting arrested, he doesn’t seem to face any real consequences. We hope that he gets banned from all the gyms.

Meryl Streep Dumps on Trump

meryl dumps trump

Last night the Golden Globe Awards Ceremony took place, and as awards were given and the beautiful humans of Hollywood graced the carpet, Meryl Streep was the one who stole the spotlight in her acceptance speech that dumped on President-Elect Donald Trump. In a nearly 6-minute address, while accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award, the actress denounced Trump’s campaign rhetoric and criticized him for mocking a disabled reporter. If you logged on Facebook anytime after 8 pm last night through the morning, there were probably at least 1,000 shares of her video on your news feed.

And as you can imagine, everyone has an opinion on Streep using her Hollywood platform to address a political issue. Trump, in expected fashion, could not let the comments go unaddressed, but had to respond using his most obnoxious and unpresidential form of communication, Twitter. I’m sure most of Ameria wishes Twitter would disable his account.

Trump’s tweet response included:

“Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a…..

Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never “mocked” a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him…….

“groveling” when he totally changed a 16-year-old story that he had written to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!

Donald Trump is going to tire himself over the next four years if he responds to every major criticism that is said him again. He seems to enjoy digging himself deeper and deeper into a hole. He’s going to exhaust himself. Get over it man. A favorite quote of mine is “a wise man once said nothing.” Take note Mr. Trump.

We do not think that Meryl Streep is overrated. She might be a nasty woman, in the best way possible.
