0424-joe-francis-girls-gone-wild-tmzExiled "Girls Gone Wild" founder Joe Francis is STILL acting like the boss ... threatening and menacing GGW employees ... and now a judge has been asked to keep Joe 100 feet away from the company and its employees.

The problem -- and how AWKWARD is this? -- is that Francis still keeps an office there.

With no physical barriers between Francis and his old crew, he's still lording over them, according to the court filing ... he allegedly violently threatened "Girls Gone Wild" employees as recently as Sunday -- and tried to fire them for not obeying his commands.

The GGW trustee -- there's a trustee because the company is in bankruptcy -- is asking the judge to order Joe to stop meddling ... and to stay 100 feet from the "Girls Gone Wild" offices and its staff.

"Totally ridiculous," Francis told TMZ. "It's ludicrous to think that any reasonable judge would grant this motion." He adds that "Girls Gone Wild" is a subtenant of the parent company, which is NOT in bankruptcy ... so he has every right to be there.
