Both Rose McGowan and Asia Argento bashed James Corden yesterday, October 14th, after the talk show host made jokes regarding the explosive allegations of sexual assault against Harvey Weinstein.
The star of The Late Late Show, 39, made a few jokes at Harvey’s expense on Friday during the AmfAR Gala Los Angeles. He said, “This is a beautiful room. It’s a beautiful night here in LA. So beautiful, Harvey Weinstein has already asked tonight up to his hotel to give him a massage.”

McGowan, 44, was one of the first women to receive a settlement after Harvey allegedly raped her at the beginning of her career.
In one of her tweets, she wrote, “motherf***ing pig.” In the proceeding posts, she said CBS should donate to a center that deals with sexual assault.
You can see the video below where Corden continued to joke about Harvey’s misconduct. Argento, 42, took to Twitter as well to say “shame on this pig and everyone who grunted with him.” In response, Corden issued an apology today and said: “sexual assault is no laughing matter.”
He went on to say he wasn’t trying to “make light” of the inexcusable behavior; the goal was to shame Harvey and his actions rather than the women who suffered abuse.
As you may know, Weinstein, 65, lost his job at his own company after horrific sexual assault and harassment allegations came to the surface in a report from The New York Times and The New Yorker.
Eight women received settlement funds after Harvey allegedly harassed, intimated, raped, or assaulted them. However, in the court papers, Harvey’s lawyers claimed the money given was not an admission of guilt.
After Weinstein lost his job, his wife, Georgina Chapman, announced she would leave him. Since then, Harvey flew to Europe to receive sex addiction therapy.
