Francis Needs to take it like a man…
Page 6 is reporting that Joe Francis, the “Girls Gone Wild” king, was whining about how Hugh Hefner isn’t standing up for him. Oh shush!
“Hugh Hefner was arrested in 1963 for a similar offense and pursued by law enforcement for decades. It’s sad how quickly he forgets,” Francis told Page Six from the Washoe County Jail in Reno, Nev.
“What I am going through now is exactly what Hugh Hefner went though, and what Larry Flynt went through, and I will prevail, because I’ve done nothing wrong.”
So why isn’t he whining about Larry Flynt?!?!
I don’t think Joe will be getting anything from Hef any time soon. When interviewed by Larry King, Hef had this to say….
“I’m not a fan,” said Hefner, 81, “because I think it’s [exploitative], and I don’t think he’s a very nice guy.”
When asked if Francis was going beyond what Playboy does, Hefner replied: “I don’t see any parallels . . . What sets the magazine apart is it really is a lifestyle publication, you know, with good fiction and good articles . . . It doesn’t have much to do with what he’s doing.”
