James Franco ended Sunday night as a victor at the 2018 Golden Globes, taking home the top prize for best actor in a musical or comedy, but he didn't end the night as a victor in everyone's eyes. The Breakfast Club star insinuated it was hypocritical of the 39-year-old actor to wear a "Time's Up" button on his all-black ensemble, but she deleted her tweets shortly after posting them.

Do not come between James Franco and a microphone. "Please never ever ask me why I left the film/tv business", she wrote.

The Golden Globes were dominated by the Time's Up movement, which aims to support those affected by sexual harassment and assault in all walks of life.

"Ok wait. Bye. Christian Slater and James Franco at a table [at the] Golden Globes #MeToo". "Said too much", Sheedy tweeted shortly after the ceremony began.

Actress Ally Sheedy, who appeared in Franco's 2014 off-Broadway play, The Long Shrift, asked several times why Franco was allowed at the Golden Globes.

According to Gawker, Franco sent flirtatious messages via Instagram and iMessage to a then-17-year-old Scottish fan who attended his performance in Of Mice and Men on Broadway.

After Franco won Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical for The Disaster Artist, Sheedy tweeted, "James Franco just won".

Many women took to social media last night to challenge James Franco's win and his wearing of a Time's Up pin. The question remains: what did James allegedly do? Another mysterious tweet from Twitter user @Enty alluded to some other sexual misconduct by Franco. Franco brought up the enigmatic movie maker Tommy Wiseau to the stage when he won the award'and even did an impression of the latter. Tbt to me speaking up for myself and other women on a franco set and immediately getting called a diva, told I was "out of line", and publicly humiliated by the producer. I knew a story was being worked on by some reporters, but these folks got impatient.
