James Corden's awful Weinstein joke

James Corden's awful Weinstein joke

While serving as the host of the annual AmfAR Gala on Friday night, Corden didn't wait long before sliding in his first reference to the now-disgraced film producer.

The host of The Late Late Show said: "This is a lovely room, it's a handsome night here in LA. Ask any of the women who watched him take a bath, it's weird watching Harvey Weinstein in hot water".

In the wake of the sexual harassment and assault allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein, a lot of Hollywood (and the rest of the world) have been reacting by sharing their own stories of harassment, or by offering solidarity and support of Weinstein's accusers.

"I don't know whether that groan was that you liked that joke, or you don't like the joke", Corden continued. "Do better." And Rose McGowan, who has accused Weinstein of rape, slammed James's "jokes", writing: "You motherf*ing piglet" in one tweet, and suggesting that the comedian is a "close friend" of Weinstein's in another.

Receiving a fair amount of backlash from the victims and women who relate to sexual assault in their degree, Corden himself took to Twitter on Sunday afternoon to apologize for what he said.

Himachal Pradesh assembly election on November 9, counting on December 18
For example, it announced the polling dates for elections to Uttar Pradesh, Punjab, Goa, Manipur and Uttarakhand on January 4. So, from October 3 to December 24 when the election process concluded, it was 83 days, which is unreasonable.

McGowan, 44, who has gone public with sex abuse claims against the studio boss, tweeted her disgust in a number of NSFW messages, calling Corden a "mother-king pig".

As cellphone footage circulated over the weekend, McGowan and Argento both blasted Corden on social media. Since then, many women and men within the industry have released statement condemning Weinstein.

Late Late Show host James Corden is apologizing after going too far with his jokes about Harvey Weinstein and sexual assault.

Although he's been suspended by the academy that organises the Oscars ceremony following the allegations.
