Looks like some drama ignited between James Franco and a fellow Yale student. James lashed out at his university’s newspaper, The Yale Daily News, after writer Cokey Cohen published an article in the paper stating that James’ Tweets “sort of suck” during the Oscars broadcast. And the Academy Award-nominated actor responded with an expletive-ly decorated picture.
It is believed that James anger towards his school, where he is currently a PHD candidate, is in response to the column Cohen wrote, Saturday entitled, “Franco, #getittogether,” which criticized the actor’s Twitter.
Once Cohen got wind of the picture, he wrote another column, “Franco, #wellplayedsir,” half-heartedly apologizing with a very sardonic tone. Well maybe it wasn’t an apology at all.
“Combined with his Oscars hosting performance and in accordance with the opinion of commenters on my last blog, I’m becoming convinced that James Franco’s whole life is a form of postmodern performance art. In that context, his Twitter fits right in,” he wrote, referencing the fallout that followed James’ hosting abilities at the Oscars on Sunday.
We wonder why James took his anger out on the university newspaper as a whole?
Regardless, the actor is definitely favoring one of his other universities of study, New York University, recently posting a picture through his Twitter of himself with the words “NYU B*ITCHES” emblazoned in blue Photoshop paint across the surface.
