UPDATE: Cokey Cohen of the Yale Daily News responds:

"Combined with his Oscars hosting performance and in accordance with the opinion of commenters on my last blog, I'm becoming convinced that James Franco's whole life is a form of postmodern performance art. In that context, his Twitter fits right in."

Does James Franco hate his own college's paper?

The actor-student-performance artist-writer tweeted this NSFW picture Tuesday, featuring a portrait of him taken from below and artfully emblazoned with "F*** THE YALE DAILY NEWS" in red Photoshop paint.

Perhaps Franco's seeming rage has its merits. The YDN has not been kind to the PhD candidate as of late, publishing pieces poking fun at his Oscars gig and deriding his use of Twitter (in the latter, columnist Cokey Cohen wrote that Franco's tweets "sort of suck").

Can't we all just get along?
