On Tuesday, a female James Franco fan took a video of the celebrity outside the stage door of Of Mice and Men—where he’s performing—and he told her to tag him.
Seeing her Instagram handle, he immediately went to the service’s private messaging feature and tried to get laid. The only problem? She was 17. Here are the screencaps of the conversation, via DListed, which where uploaded to Imgur and, of course, deleted.
Franco comes across a little creepy, but let he who has not tried to get laid off social media cast the first stone.
According to DListed, Franco took to Twitter to defend himself, but then promptly deleted his response:
After this mess went viral, 35-year-old James tweeted (and deleted) that he’s not a teen fucker and told parents to keep their teens away from him. And he also added a little age limit to his Instagram profile.
Who can blame him, though. He’s an ar-tist. They bang underage girls all the time.
