James Franco Accused of 'Sexually Exploitative' Behavior by Five Women

James Franco Accused of 'Sexually Exploitative' Behavior by Five Women

Yesterday former student Sarah Tither-Kaplan claimed that, in a nude orgy scene three years ago, he "removed protective plastic guards" covering other actresses" private parts while "simulating oral sex on them'.

Five women told the Times that Franco had abused his power during their encounters with the successful actor.

As allegations of sexual misconduct against James Franco continue to roll in, the besieged actor has found a new form of deflection: martyrdom. Franco wore a Time's Up pin supporting the anti-sexual harassment organization founded by a group of Hollywood women, which prompted many Twitter users to speak out against the actor's apparent hypocrisy and share personal stories of how Franco allegedly mistreated them. One of her now deleted tweets read, "James Franco just won. Please never ask me why I left the film/TV business", according to the Independent.

Franco said during appearances on "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert" and "Late Night With Seth Meyers" this week that the allegations against him are "not accurate".

Franco has continued to appear at awards ceremonies and on talk shows, awkwardly explaining that he supports the rights of women to call out acts of sexual misconduct while asserting that his accusers have made inaccurate claims about him.

"I'm here to listen and learn and change my perspective where it's off, and I'm completely willing and want to", he said.

Diet Coke rebrands with 'real (new) thing' to attract millenials
Sommerville now says the design team have an opportunity to rethink such an iconic brand with the scale and reach of Diet Coke. In spite of these new changes, Coca-Cola says that the recipe for its classic Diet Coke has not been reformulated.

The actor then pointed out that most of the things he heard on Twitter were inaccurate. And I truly believe they need to be part of this conversation. 'And I think that we've all behaved, at a certain level, unconsciously, and done things that were insensitive, inappropriate, without necessarily understanding that they were.

"I was talking to him, all of a sudden his penis was out", she said. "If I have to take a knock because I'm not going to try and actively refute things, then I will, because I believe in it that much".

The actor said he is someone who always takes responsibility for his actions. I directed her in a play off-Broadway.

"Before I've ever been on TV or before I've ever had any real credits or before any of this - of course I regret that". But in reference to other behavior, he said, "If there's restitution to be made, I will make it".

Violet Paley said that during a consensual relationship, Franco once pressured her to perform oral sex in a auto and that the "power dynamic was really off".

"If I have done something wrong", he added, "I will fix it - I have to". I don't know what else to do.
