It’s safe to say that James Franco is a little touchy about his Oscar performance. Or rather, the performance that he slept through / was extremely high during. After the Oscars, he posted a photo on Twitter that read “F*ck the Yale Daily News,” in response to a critic at the Yale Daily News. Wow, you’d think a big celebrity would be able to take a little heat from a college newspaper, but maybe doing 500 projects simultaneously has left him a tad irritated.
Now Franco has taken to Twitter again to blast hard-to-look-at Oscar joke writer Bruce Vilanch. In a recent interview, Vilanch said: “I have to call James Franco and tell him the show’s over … He took a nap and woke up in class.” Obviously, Vilanch was going right for the jugular, actively trying to hurt Franco’s feelings. Franco took the joke in stride, and searched his inner Perez Hilton for an appropriate response. See the photo below, which reads – in word bubbles coming out of Vilanch’s mouth: “James f*cked up the Oscars. Trust me, I know comedy. I mean, come on, I write for Bette Midler.” Zing-zanged.
Franco, a handsome, Academy Award nominated actor, probably could have ignored Vilanch’s relatively harmless joke. After all, besides successfully selling jokes, what else does Bruce Vilanch have? A collection of funny t-shirts and Robin Williams‘ contact information.
