Students Campaign Against Speaker James Franco
The Milk star only received his undergraduate degree in English from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) last year. And current students are angry a more eligible candidate wasn't chosen. A group of 200 have created a page on social networking site Facebook.com, to urge school officials to cancel his impending speech.
A statement from founders of the group UCLA Students Against James Franco as Commencement Speaker claims Franco lacks "the wisdom and perspective such a speaker is meant to provide the graduates."
Mocking the 30-year-old's intelligence, they add: "Clearly, this is ridiculous. Anyone who has been in his classes knows he is an average student."
Franco is currently enrolled at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts where he studies filmmaking, and the city's Columbia University where he's completing an MFA Writing Program.
