Earlier this month James Franco recorded a parody of Justin Bieber‘s hit song “Boyfriend,” posting the music video to his WhoSay account. James Franco is regretting his decision to mock Justin Bieber. The actor and his Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson, parodied Justin’s hit song “Boyfriend” on Jan. 8 and he tells E! that it wasn’t long before he got a lot of heat from some higher-ups to delete it.
James Franco said in an interview with E! at Sundance:
“I was asked to take it down by some people. Bieber didn’t contact me, but I don’t think he was too happy. I wasn’t trying to diss him.”
The video has Franco emulating Bieber, rocking a hoodie, flat-brim hat, and the teen sensation’s trademark bangs. Watch the video:
