José Angel Santana used to teach movie directing at NYU, but he was pink-slipped after he committed an illegal act against the arts by giving James Franco a D for only showing up to 2 out of 14 classes. José is suing NYU for wrongfully firing his ass and now he’s suing James Franco for defaming his good name. James puckered his lips and got bitchy in interviews when he said that he didn’t show up to Professor Santana’s class, because he didn’t want to waste his precious time with a crappy teacher. James said that José wasn’t fired for giving him a D, the dude was fired for being a bad teacher and he’ll never work at another university again. And yes, when James said that, he smirked and gave himself an A++++ in BURNING.
José told The New York Post that James is nothing but a celebrity bully who uses his name to punish anybody who doesn’t suck on his ego. José also brought the RNC empty chair into it:
“Whoever was in Clint Eastwood’s chair at the Republican National Convention was more present than Mr. Franco was in my classes. [Franco] is a bully. He uses the bully pulpit of his celebrity to punish anyone who doesn’t do his bidding. I didn’t deserve to be on the receiving end of those falsehoods. I was outraged that someone with his attendance record at NYU had the audacity to make those statements.
José’s attorney says that most of his evaluations from students were positive and that James is using his ass lips to do the talking again. José made $70,000 a year as an NYU professor and he’s suing for unspecified damages.
Yes, James Franco is a smug stain on smug’s ass who thinks every university should just throw degrees at him for being James Franco, but José doesn’t know who he’s dealing with. James Franco will get his law degree, pass the bar just by writing the name James Franco on the bar exam, become a NY State judge and throw out the case against him. Then Judge James Franco will send José to prison for wasting James Franco’s time. When José’ settles into his cell, he’ll hear the sound of boots stomping his way and when he looks up he’ll see….Prison Warden James Franco. And after José completes his sentence, he’ll go back to NYU to get his job back, but they’ll tell him that the position was filled a long time ago by…Professor James Franco. You can’t escape The Franco!
