James Franco Removes Insulting Tweets About Oscar’s Bruce Vilanch
After Oscar writer Bruce Vilanch told New York magazine James Franco "didn't get there" as co-host of the Academy Awards, the actor Tweeted, "bruce he let me down."
He also posted a photo of Vilanch and scribbled a sarcastic caption over Vilanch's face: "James fucked up the Oscars. Trust me, I know comedy. I mean, come on, I write for Bette Midler!"
A short time after Tweeting the message, Franco deleted it, according to Gawker.
Franco was widely panned as host. In his NY interview, Vilanch blamed Franco’s busy schedule for his lackluster hosting duties: “He has so many balls in the air, he didn't get to town till Thursday before the show on Sunday."
