Did James Franco Try to Seduce a 17-Year-Old Girl Using Instagram?
Things start off innocent enough; Franco asks the girl where she's from. Then she mentions that she is "nearly 18."
Then things progress to text message.
The girl asks Franco to send her proof of who he is and the screenshots show a picture of Franco holding a piece of paper with the girl's name written on it.
And then that's it; it's all very strange. But there is nothing to suggest that they actually ever met. (I will take this moment to point out that the age of consent in New York is 17.) And then there is the (extremely high) possibility that it's completely fake altogether. Certainly more impressive things have been done using the magic of Photoshop.
Franco has not directly addressed the photos, but he did upload a denial to Instagram.
That post was then quickly deleted. Franco also apparently updated his Instagram bio to remove a sentence asking his underage fans not to DM him.
The pictures on Imgur have also been deleted, but nothing is ever truly lost on the internet.
