  • James Corden slammed for inappropriate Harvey Weinstein jokes at Hollywood gala

Later he tried again saying, "It has been weird this week watching Harvey Weinstein in hot water".

The English comedian, who hosts the Late Late Show on CBS, went head first into Harvey Weinstein for his material.

Corden, host of The Late Late Show, was master of ceremonies at the gala for amfAR, the foundation for Aids research, in LA on Friday evening.

The allegations of sexual assault and harassment against Harvey Weinstein that have emerged over the past week and a half have been truly horrific, and the fact that this was all pretty much an open secret in Hollywood makes it even worse.

Police forces in both the United States and the UK have announced that they are investigating allegations made against the mogul, who has apologised for elements of his past behaviour but strongly denies any claims of non-consensual sex.

"I don't know whether that groan was that you liked that joke, or you don't like the joke", Corden continued.

Footage uploaded to Twitter from the ceremony shows James Corden appearing to be slightly surprised by the groans following his opening monologue.
