Perhaps James Franco should consider deleting his Instagram account.
Franco found himself in hot social media water (again) Thursday after referring to New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley as "a little bi---" via the photo-sharing platform. It seems Franco, who's currently starring in Of Mice and Men on Broadway, didn't take kindly to Brantley's less-than-glowing review of the play.

Seth Rogen returned to Saturday Night Live for his third hosting stint this weekend, and it was distinctly not a charm.
The episode started off promisingly, with Rogen's monologue featuring cameos from celebs — some surprising (Zooey Deschanel), some predictable (James Franco), and some who were there to support musical guest Ed Sheeran (Taylor Swift). But the rest of the night was a bit of a slog, save for a bizarre sketch featuring Franco as a monster who decides to get plastic surgery to appear human.
After his private conversation with a 17-year-old girl leaked online, James Franco attempted to do some damage control on Live! With Kelly and Michael Friday.
After meeting the teenage tourist at his Broadway show Of Mice and Men, Franco reached out to her on Instagram. He soon suggested they rent a hotel room and insisted, "Don't tell."
James Franco, Seth Rogen
If imitation is the highest form of flattery, Seth Rogen and James Franco are Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's biggest fans!
On Friday night, Rogen tweeted, "It had to be done," along with a photo of Kimye's Vogue cover with one small tweak -- the couple's faces had replaced by his own and Franco's.
From the minute you hear Kristen Bell's hard-boiled voiceover, it's clear that some things never change — though Veronica might allege she has. Veronica Mars' titular hero claims to have moved on from her time as a teen detective ("Trust me, I know how dumb that sounds.") in favor of a prestigious career as a New York lawyer. Though Veronica might claim to be a marshmallow now, when she learns Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring) is a murder suspect (again!) she doesn't hesitate before resorting back to the righteously indignant and dogged detective we fell for all those years ago.
So who's Logan suspected of murdering this time? None other than Carrie Bishop (Andrea Estella), or as the world now knows her, Bonnie DeVille, troubled pop star and Logan's ex-girlfriend. (How many dead ex-girlfriends can one guy have?)
Can't wait to find out more? Here are eight things to know about the Veronica Mars movie before its premiere:
James Franco, Shia LaBeouf
Could Shia LaBeouf's recent bizarre behavior — including plagiarizing a short film, headbutting a man in a bar and wearing a paper bag over his head on a red carpet — all be part of a performance art piece? That's the question James Franco poses in an opinion piece from Wednesday's New York Times.
Chris Messina, Anders Holm, Bill Hader
On last week's winter finale, The Mindy Project made our dreams come true when Mindy (Mindy Kaling) and Danny (finally!) kissed. While we wait until the comedy returns on April 1, we thought we'd look back and see how Danny stacks up to Mindy's past love interests.
So check out our rankings below, from least dateable to the ultimate OTP.
New year, same Shia.
A few weeks after Shia LaBeouf apologized for plagiarizing his 2012 short film HowardCantour.com from Daniel Clowes' comic Justin M. Damiano, the actor hired a plane on New Year's Day to write "I Am Sorry Daniel Clowes" in the sky over Los Angeles.
Leighton Meester is set to make her Broadway debut next year in a production of Of Mice and Men, The Associated Press reports. The Gossip Girl star will play the wife of a ranch boss who catches the eye of mentally challenged Lennie.
James Franco and Seth Rogen
James Franco and Seth Rogen have shared the screen many times since co-starring on NBC's Freaks and Geeks in 2000. But few probably knew just how close these two really are.
Franco, 35, and Rogen, 31, get real close in a new video...
