Actor James Franco took to social media today to criticize what he called a "homophobic" Gawker article published Wednesday implying he's gay.

The article, entitled "James Franco Is Living With a Man," floated the idea that actor Scott Haze was Fraco's "live-in boyfriend" based on two sentences in a recent New York Times piece on Franco. 

Wrote Gawker's J.K. Trotter, in part:

Franco's response, posted on Facebook:
