  • Rose McGowan goes off on James Corden's Harvey Weinstein jokes

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.

Some accusing Weinstein of abuse claimed that he asked them to give him a massage.

"Harvey Weinstein wanted to come tonight, but sadly he'll settle for whatever potted plant is closest", Corden said, referencing one of the allegations against the disgraced movie producer.

Other users were also clearly upset by the jokes.

For the record, joking about sexual harassment and assault is not OK - and James Corden is consequently getting dragged on social media for it.

Watch Corden's Harvey Weinstein jokes below. His films have been nominated for more than 300 Oscar awards - winning 81.

He's denied any sexual assaults and maintains that any sexual contact was consensual.
