Every Dude in Hollywood Who's Been Fired Over Sexual Misconduct Allegations

"James Franco is a cuddly guy, but so are bears," McGowan tweets.

Rose McGowan called out James Franco and "selectively dead Hollywood" for giving him another acting honor Thursday night at the Critics Choice Awards on Thursday, despite sexual misconduct allegations from five different women.

"I know what you did last summer: James Franco wins a Critics' Choice Award amid sexual misconduct claims," McGowan tweeted shortly after his win. "James Franco is a cuddly guy, but so are bears."

"Selectively Dead Hollywood has heard about this a--hole for years," she added. "His hipster Prince of Hollywood's bro status protected him. Bros before Ho's, amiright?"

Although the 39-year-old actor didn't appear at the awards, he did get the hardware for Best Actor in a Comedy for playing Tommy Wiseau in "The Disaster Artist." He also won a Golden Globe Sunday for the role, and consequently received a lot of criticism for wearing a TimesUp pin at the ceremony.

Shortly after that win Ally Sheed, who is best known for her role as Allison Reynolds in "The Breakfast Club," wondered why the actor was even allowed at the Golden Globes this year considering the show seemed to be shutting out men who misused their power.

"James Franco just won. Please never ask me why I left the film/TV business," she tweeted. "OK wait. Bye. Christian Slater and James Franco at table on Golden Globes #MeToo."

"Why is a man hosting? Why is James Franco allowed in? Said too much. Nite, love ya Golden Globes," Sheedy added.

Sheedy and Franco worked together in his off-Broadway theater directorial debut, "The Long Shrift," in 2014. Sheedy has since deleted her tweets.

Although Franco said the allegations shared by women on Twitter "are not accurate" on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" Tuesday, he didn't outright deny them and instead took a different approach.

"The things that I heard that were on Twitter are not accurate, but I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn’t have a voice for so long," he said. "So I don’t want to shut them down in any way."

He told Seth Meyers on "Late Night" Wednesday, "I have my own side of this story, but I believe in these people that have been underrepresented getting their stories out enough that I will hold back things that I could say just because I believe in it that much."
