James Corden Attempts Harvey Weinstein Jokes, Fails Miserably
There has been a lot of criticism about leftist comics not rushing to joke about Harvey Weinstein when they wouldn't be able to contain themselves if he were a conservative. And while sexual assault isn't funny in no way whatsover, making cracks at Harvey should be easy. Yet, James Corden still seemed to fail miserably at the AmFar gala in Los Angeles.
Straight out gate, host @JKCorden with Harvey Weinstein jokes. Too soon? Some laughs, some groans #amfARLosAngeles https://t.co/nx88w5UwUe— Chris Gardner (@Chris Gardner) 1507949269.0
Some of Harvey's victims weren't amused.

Here's my thing, you're in a room of Hollywood A-listers who all turned a blind eye to Harvey for decades (see Flashback: Gwyneth Paltrow Makes Harvey Weinstein ‘Coercion’ Jokes and George Clooney ‘Claims’ He Knew Nothing of Harvey Weinstein’s Actions. Sure…). Sack up and go after them for that.
Or, leave comedy to the professionals and stick with doing karaoke in your car.
