Chiming in on the situation surrounding James Franco's online flirtation with a 17-year-old Scottish girl, the girl's grandmother came forward to voice her own opinion.

Beryl Sussex stated that she is not happy with the "Pineapple Express" star's Instagram solicitation of her granddaughter Lucy Clode, telling The Daily Mail, "I think he ought to get a slap on the wrist and I know my son, Lucy’s dad, wouldn’t be afraid to give it to him."

Continuing, Beryl said, "It shows how little these famous actors know about normal people and how to behave. They’re out of touch with reality."

Finishing her remarks, Beryl stated, "Lucy isn’t even 18. It’s bad enough a man of his age is approaching her like this, never mind a movie star. I really take exception to this. I don’t know this actor, at my age we don’t keep up to speed, but it’s quite clear his behavior is not on."

The 35-year-old publicly acknowledged his embarrassment over the situation on Friday's episode of "Live! With Kelly and Michael," and now it is your turn to tell us what you think of it all on our Facebook and Twitter pages!
