James Franco Posts & Deletes Racy Selfie

James Franco is in the midst of yet another eyebrow-raising social media incident!

The actor posted a racy shot on Instagram on Thursday night. In the pic, he is seen standing in front of a mirror pulling down his underwear, just about to show off all the goods!

His chest appears to be sweaty in the possible bathroom shot that he captioned curiously “JUMP ROPE.”

Last month, James made headlines after hitting on a 17-year-old girl on the photo sharing app.

He later addressed the incident on “Live! With Kelly and Michael.”

“I’m embarrassed, and I guess I’m just a model of, you know, how social media is tricky,” he said at the time. “It’s a way people meet each other today. But what I’ve learned I guess just because I’m new to it is like, you don’t know who’s on the other end. You meet somebody in person and you get a feel for them but you don’t know who you’re talking to, and, you know? So I used bad judgment. I learned my lesson.”
