A former professor of James Franco at New York University is suing the school after he claims he was fired for giving the actor a 'D' in his class.

José Angel Santana taught "Directing the Actor II" at NYU and says he gave James a bad grade in the class because he missed 12 out of the 14 classes.

He is now suing NYU for his job back claiming he was fired by his department for giving James a 'D.'

“The school has bent over backwards to create a Franco-friendly environment, that’s for sure,” Santana told The New York Post. “The university has done everything in its power to curry favor with James Franco.”

James spoke out on his low grade last year to Showbiz411.com saying he "did the work."

But Santana alleges NYU gave James good grades even though he missed many of his other classes.

“In my opinion, they’ve turned the NYU graduate film degree into swag for James Franco’s purposes, a possession, something you can buy,” he said.
