James Franco Makes Controversial Rape Joke

James Franco was roasted on Comedy Central by his famous comedian friends. I didn’t watch it because I value my time. Everyone got some good shots in at James Franco’s pretentiousness and failure as an Oscar host. Mr. Franco ended the evening with a rape joke directed at pal Seth Rogen that has some people steamed. Here’s what he said (via Salon):

Seth was really hilarious tonight. But the jokes suggesting that I was gay … coming from you, Seth, really hurts because it reminds of the time on the set of ‘Pineapple Express’ when Seth Rogen tried to rape me. [Rogen laughs, then shakes his head, gesturing discomfort] Forced his way into my dressing room, blew pot smoke into my mouth, [Franco laughs] pinned me beneath his sweaty, heaving, schlubby body. Luckily, he was distracted by the sound of an ice cream truck outside and I managed to break free. But Seth, the incident did inspire my latest painting, entitled, “Seth Rogen is a Gay Stoner Rapist.”

What do you think? Did he go too far?
