It looks like it's Time's Up for James Franco.
On Sunday night, he won a Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy. Just a few moments after he gave his acceptance speech, women he had wronged came forward.
In the days that have followed, we've seen Franco hem and haw over a non-apology and have at least one public event canceled in light of the allegations.
Five women have now come forward with accusations of sexual misconduct against Franco. A new report from the LA Times shares the harrowing details behind their allegations.
After all the buzz he's been getting for The Disaster Artist, Franco probably assumed his Sunday night would be full of happiness and excitement.
via: GettyHe clearly received the "wear black" memo and also sported a "Time's Up" pin to show his support for victims of sexual abuse and discriminatory practices within several industries. Maybe he should have opted out of wearing the pin. Better yet, maybe he should have just stayed home. Even better yet, he should have never sexually abused women.
Violet Paley is one of the women who called Franco out for the hypocrisy of him wearing a "Time's Up" pin.

Sarah Tither-Kaplan, 26, is another woman who confronted Franco via Twitter about her own experiences with him. She was a student in a Sex Scenes master class Franco taught at Studio 4 (the now-closed acting school he founded in 2014).

Katie Ryan is an actress who took several classes at Studio 4.

Hilary Dusome, another former Studio 4 student, describes what happened after she was chosen to perform in what she thought was one of Franco's art films.
via: GettyIn the middle of filming, Franco approached Dusome and several other actresses and asked, "So, who wants to take your shirt off?" No one volunteered, and Franco stormed off in anger. "I felt like I was selected for something based on my hard work and my merit, and when I realized it was because I have nice [breasts], it was pretty clear that was not the case," Dusome said. "I don't think he started teaching with bad intentions, but he went down a bad path and damaged a lot of people in the process."
Dusome's statements were backed up by another student named Natalie Chmiel.
via: GettyShe also said Franco was "visibly angry" when the women in the scene didn't volunteer to take their tops off. "He just took advantage of our eagerness to work and be a part of something bigger," Chmiel said. "We were all these up-and-coming actors who were so hopeful."
And don't forget that back in 2014, Franco was caught trying to convince a 17-year-old British girl to meet him in his hotel room.
