Rose McGowan and Asia Argento, who have accused Weinstein of sexual abuse, took to twitter to slam Corden for making light of sexual assault.
“YOU MOTHERF*****G PIGLET,” McGowan tweeted with a clip of the monologue.
She also posted that “James Corden is a close friend of HW’s” and “Hearing the audience’s vile roars & laughs show EXACTLY what kind of HOLLYWOOD you really are.”
“Shame on this pig and everyone who grunted with him #amfARLosAngeles,” Argento added
Since the criticism, Corden has apologised for his jokes and explained his intention was to shame the producer’s behavior.
“To be clear, sexual assault is no laughing matter. I was not trying to make light of Harvey’s inexcusable behavior 1/2,” the The Late Late Show host tweed, “but to shame him, the abuser, not his victims. I am truly sorry for anyone offended, that was never my intention. (2/2)”
As the BBC reports, more than two dozen women, including Angelina Jolie, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Beckinsale have come forward with allegations about Weinstein's conduct.
