Sorry for the Bad Weinstein Jokes

Corden issued an apology Sunday saying “To be clear, sexual assault is no laughing matter. I was not trying to make light of Harvey’s inexcusable behavior, but to shame him, the abuser, not his victims. I am truly sorry for anyone offended, that was never my intention.”
The “Late Late Show” star caught a ton of flak this weekend for jokes he cracked while hosting the amfAR Gala on Fridya in L.A.

Corden’s comments were met with a lot of groans and little laughs, but he persisted and kept the offensive Weinstein jokes coming through the night. One of his biggest critics was Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan, who called Corden a “MOTHERF****** PIGLET” on Twitter.

If there’s one thing we’ve learned this week … it’s that Rose knows no filter … and takes no prisoners on the subject of Weinstein. Seems Corden knows that all too well now.
