In what was probably the most interesting Golden Globes Awards in years, we saw women facing down their accusers and guests dressed in solidarity against sexual harassment and abuse in Hollywood. One woman, though, was at home and, while she later deleted them, she shared her thoughts via Twitter.
Ally Sheedy, who rose to fame for her performance in The Breakfast Club made some comments about James Franco on a night when he took home the Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy prize for his movie, The Disaster Artist.
These are the three tweets that Sheedy wrote and deleted:
- “Why is James Franco allowed in?” she tweeted, adding, “Said too much.”
- “Ok wait. Bye. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table on @goldenglobes #MeToo.”
- “James Franco just won. Please never ever ask me why I left the film/TV business.”
The actress worked with Franco in 2014 when he directed her in the play The Long Shrift. Based on her tweets, we can’t help but assume that things didn’t go well.
On top of that, social media was already lit up talking about Christian Slater and how ridiculous it was for him to be wearing a “Time’s Up” pin when he was actually convicted of sexually assaulting his girlfriend in both 1997 and in 2005.
When a reporter caught up with Slater in November 2017 and asked if he regrets any of his behavior in his younger years. He said, “no, no. I regret nothing” before freaking out and, in reference to the reporter saying, “what a salacious c*nt this guy is!”
Interesting. Well, they were dressed in black and wearing the pins so it’s cool, right?
