Hey, kids – leave James Franco alone!

You'd think that college students would know that it's mean to gang up on people.

But a bunch of prissy nerds at UCLA are mad because the dreamy actor and alum has been asked to come back and speak at the school – but they don't think he's smart enough to address them.

They've even set up a Facebook group campaigning to get the Pineapple Express actor – who graduated from the school last year -- ditched as a speaker at the upcoming College of Letters and Sciences Commencement Ceremony.

According to TMZ, the group -- already 221 members strong -- moans: "Clearly, this is ridiculous. Anyone who has been in his classes knows he is an average student."

"His academic experiences are too limited thus far to provide him with the wisdom and perspective such a speaker is meant to provide to graduates," they say.

Whatever. We don't know about you guys, but James can come and talk to us any time he likes -- no matter what his grades are like.
