James Corden Awkwardly Jokes About Harvey Weinstein at Gala to Mixed Reaction”

The Gavin and Stacey actor hosted the AmfAR Gala in Los Angeles and some of his chosen material referenced the recent sexual harassment allegations made against Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein.

He denies the charges and says any sexual contact was consensual.

He then went on to introduce the woman of the hour, Julia Roberts, who was getting presented with the Award of Courage for her work in the fight against AIDS.

The amfAR gala is an annual event which aims to raise money for HIV/AIDS research.

When the gag received a mixed reaction and some "nervous groans" from the audience, according to Variety, he told the audience: 'If you don't like that joke, you should probably leave now'.

"This is a attractive room, it's a handsome night here in L.A. It's so lovely, Harvey Weinstein has already asked tonight up to his hotel to give him a massage".

While official footage of the event has yet to be broadcast, mobile phone-shot footage has been doing the rounds on Twitter, with many people disgusted at Corden.

Several of Harvey Weinstein's alleged victims claim he suggested exchanging massages. "It's so lovely, Harvey Weinstein has already asked tonight up to his hotel to give him a massage".

Rose McGowan, one of the actresses who helped bring Weinstein's offences to light, also trashed Corden's routine, calling the English talk-show host a "motherfucking piglet".

Corden didn't back down from the Weinstein beat as he joked, "It has been weird this week though, hasn't it?"

Harvey Weinstein is one of the most successful men in movie history.

Although he's been suspended by the academy that organises the Oscars ceremony following the allegations.
