James isn't the only celebrity who has been taken to task for turning sexual assault into a punchline; Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa recently apologized for a 2011 comment where he said his favorite part of his role on GoT was that he can "rape handsome women".

The British late-night host took the stage Friday night at the amFAR gala, and kicked off his bit with several references to the more than two dozen accusations of sexual harassment, assault and rape now facing the disgraced movie mogul.

He continued: "It has been weird this week though, watching Harvey Weinstein in hot water".

"This is a lovely room, this is a handsome night here in L.A. It is so attractive that Harvey Weinstein has already asked tonight up to his hotel room to give him a massage", Corden said, in reference to some of the numerous sexual harassment claims made against the Hollywood mogul.

There were loud groans after Corden told his audience it was a handsome night in LA... "If you don't like that joke, you should probably leave now".

"It has been a weird week though, hasn't it, watching Harvey Weinstein in hot water".
