JAMES CORDEN APOLOGIZES FOR HARVEY WEINSTEIN JOKES: In a series of tweets on Sunday, James Corden apologized for the jokes he made at the amfAR Gala on Saturday. "To be clear, sexual assault is no laughing matter. I was not trying to make light of Harvey's inexcusable behavior," Corden wrote on Twitter, "but to shame him, the abuser, not his victims. I am truly sorry for anyone offended, that was never my intention." During the gala, he made jokes about the Weinstein allegations, saying, among other things: "It has been weird this week 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." The backlash was immediate, with Asia Argento and Rose McGowan, both of whom accused Weinstein of rape, leading the charge. "James Corden is a close friend of HW's," McGowan tweeted early on Sunday morning. "Hearing the audience's vile roars & laughs show EXACTLY what kind of HOLLYWOOD you really are." (Vulture)
