Bijou Phillips Apologizes Daniel Franzese Over Claims She Taunted Him Over Sexuality And Assault Him

Actress Bijou Phillips has apologized to the Mean Girls star Daniel Franzese after he made allegations towards Bijou of body-shaming him and taunting him over his sexuality.

Daniel accused Bijou through a lengthy Facebook post on Sunday, of harassing him while both were filming 2001 movie Bully. The 39-year-old Daniel claimed his co-star had made his life an anxiety on set and even physically assaulted him while in a bullying campaign.

On Monday, the 37-year-old actress Bijou responded to those claims, saying that she is 'mortified' at her behavior.

In a statement to TMZ, she said;

I want to write to address what Daniel has said. I don't remember that time well, those years are a blur. I was a teenager and reckless in my behavior. I know Daniel to be a trustworthy and honest person, and to find out through social media that I was not the friend I thought I was to him made me so sad.

She further added;

I am so mortified by this behavior and have contacted Daniel and apologized to him privately. I am not and never have been homophobic. I have nothing but love for the LGBTQ community and Daniel.

 

Daniel has since shared a tweet revealed that he has accepted Bijou's apology and forgiven her.

Here's the tweet, check it out.

Bijou apology comes one week after her husband, That 70s Show star Danny Masterson, was accused of raping four women.
