James Corden criticised for making jokes about Harvey Weinstein allegations

James Corden has been slammed by Harvey Weinstein's multiple victims after the comedian opened a black-tie charity gala with a series of tasteless jokes about the movie producer. "Ask any of the women who watched him take a bath, its weird watching Harvey Weinstein in hot water", Corden charged ahead as the groans grew even louder.

Weinstein is now embroiled in scandal as he faces an enormous number of accusations of sexual harassment and sexual assault.

Weinstein has denied any allegations of non-consenual sex. In 2013, the late night host starred Weinstein's film One Chance.

"I don't know whether that groan was that you like that joke or you don't like that joke". "If you don't like the joke, you should probably leave right now".

Shortly after the clip was published several Twitter users vented their anger at the fact James Corden had made the remarks.

James isn't the only celebrity who has been taken to task for turning sexual assault into a punchline; Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa recently apologized for a 2011 comment where he said his favorite part of his role on GoT was that he can "rape lovely women".

For the record, joking about sexual harassment and assault is not OK - and James Corden is consequently getting dragged on social media for it. She also claimed that Corden is "a close friend" of the disgraced producer and called on CBS, which airs the Late Late Show, to make a donation to the East Los Angeles Women's Center "OR YOU TOO SUPPORT RAPE CULTURE".

While many on the late night talk show circuit have been joking about Weinstein this week, including the likes of Saturday Night Live, Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert, the only difference is they have been including strong condemnations of the alleged behavior.
