James Corden attended the amFAR Gala Los Angeles on Saturday and he had some Harvey Weinstein jokes. They didn’t go over well (via Page Six).

“Here in LA, it’s so beautiful, Harvey Weinstein has already asked tonight up to his hotel, to give him a massage. I don’t know whether that groan was that you liked that joke, or you don’t like that joke. If you don’t like that joke you should probably leave now,” he said with a grin. “It has been weird this week, though, hasn’t it — watching Harvey Weinstein in hot water. Ask any of the women who watched him take a bath — it’s weird watching Harvey Weinstein in hot water. Harvey Weinstein wanted to come tonight, but he’ll settle for whatever potted plant is closest,” he added.

Sometimes a joke can be “too soon”. Especially when it’s told to a room full of people who have known what you’re talking about and allowed what you’re talking about to happen for 20+ years but now have to act like your joke is in bad taste. Rose McGowan weighed in.

 

 

Of course, Corden apologized:
