Comedian Charlyne Yi calls out former costar Seth Rogen's alleged performative activism of supporting women yet staying complicit in enabling long time friend James Franco's behavior towards young women.

In 2014, a 17-year-old girl posted screenshots of alleged messages between her and Franco on Instagram. The messages showed that Franco, who was 35 at the time, tried to meet her in a hotel room after she told him she was 17. A former girlfriend, Violet Paley, alleged that Franco coerced her into sex while they were dating. On January 11, 2018, the Los Angeles Times reported that five women were accusing Franco of inappropriate or sexually exploitative behavior while serving as their acting teacher or mentor. And finally, on October 3, 2019, two female former students of Franco's now-closed film and acting school, Studio 4, filed a lawsuit against him and his partners alleging sexual exploitation.
