James Corden was not at all offended by pal Louis C.K.’s controversial monologue on SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE.
“The only think I could say is that it is alright to be offended,” he told me this morning at a media event to promote THE LATE LATE SHOW on CBS.
C.K. — star of the hit FX series LOUIE — landed in hot water over the weekend after delivering a series of jokes about incest, pedophilia and child molestation on SNL’s 40th season finale.
“There is no worse life available to a human than being a caught child molester,” he joked. “Yet they still do it. [So] you could only surmise that it must be really good — from their point of view — it must be amazing.”
The routine was immediately blasted on Twitter, with many viewers saying it was the worst thing they had ever seen on the show.
But were they over-reacting?
“Ultimately I think we all withhold the right to offend or to be offended.” Corden says. “Somehow being offended has become a thing. [These days] you are offended in the same way you are hungry.”
THE LATE LATE SHOW airs weeknights at 12:37 am on CBS.
