Because you know, social media is…umm…tricky. Yeah, that’s it.

In case you missed it, the original exchange is below.





Franco DMs the girl on Instagram asking her for “#”. I’m pretty sure she thought he was asking her what her hashtag was. Come on Franco, get with the times buddy. Soon after that the messages moved to texts. She still doesn’t quite believe it’s him so he does a verification and writes her name on a piece of paper and sends her a picture of it. Somehow that still wasn’t enough. She responds with, “I’ll come back when I’m 18.”




Once these images started making the rounds on social media Franco took to Twitter to defend(?) himself.

The only thing that would have made this whole situation better is after she turned him down if he asked her if she could send him her mom’s number. I bet Chris Hansen is rubbing one out to this story right now.
