Something smells fishy with this James Franco scandal. Franco got into some hot water last week after flirty messages he sent to a 17-year-old girl went public.

Here’s his apology for his indiscretion on Kelly & Michael from Friday.

The timing seems odd as the news broke on the same day that the trailer for his new film Palo Alto was released, according to Huff PostPalo Alto is based on a book of short stories by Franco about a single father finding himself in a relationship with a teenage girl.

Could this truly be a case of “poor judgement,” or is it a publicity stunt?
