Charlyne Yi met Hollywood friends James Franco and Seth Rogen on Instagram and described Franco as a « sexual predator » and Rogen as someone who supposedly « empowers » his frequent collaborator.
Yi, who in 2017 in « The Disaster Artist », directed by Franco, was cast alongside Franco and Rogen, claims the producers tried to « bribe » her when she wanted to get out of the film because of Franco.
« When I tried to break the legal contract, & quit Disaster Artist because James Franco was a sexual predator and they tried to bribe me with a bigger role as an actor, » she claimed on Instagram. « I cried and told them that was exactly the opposite of what I wanted, that I didn’t feel safe working with a sexual predator. »
Yi, 35, also claimed that da Rogen, 38 Being the producer of the film, « he definitely knows about the bribe and why I quit. »
In 2018, five women – including four of Franco’s acting students – came forward to accuse Franco of sexual misconduct in the past. Last January, a settlement was reached on a lawsuit accusing the actor of intimidating his students in unsubstantiated and exploitative sexual situations. « The Disaster Artist » appeared before the 2018 bomb report, but Yi appeared to refer to a 2014 incident via Instagram involving 42-year-old Franco, who allegedly contacted a 17-year-old girl about a hotel meeting. Franco later said he behaved like a « gentleman » and didn’t know the girl’s age.
In her Instagram post, Yi mentioned an « SNL » sketch Rogen carried out to « enable Franco … right after Franco was caught. » Just weeks after the teen interaction came to light, Rogen appeared on SNL and joked, “I decided to play a prank on James Franco. I posed on Instagram as a girl and told him I was a lot young. He seemed unimpressed. I have a date to meet him at the Ace Hotel. “
