That "joke" was very unnecessary when will Hollywood learn that jokes about sexual harassment/pedophilia/ sexual predators is not fucking funny
the writers that james corden works with and james corden himself seriously need to just…….fucking do better. this is officially a pattern. the gross joke on aloto last summer where james and niall laughed about who out of the boys niall would trust alone in a room with his naked girlfriend (thereby implying that men can’t stop themselves from sexually assaulting a naked woman), the jokes about kendall during late late styles back in may, the weinstein jokes at that event a month or so ago, and now this……and this is just some of the stuff i’ve paid attention to because it related to the members of one direction or it was high profile and made the news, so i know there must be a ton more out there. hire some female writers and teach your male writers how to write jokes that are funny without being nasty or degrading - i know it’s possible because i’ve watched some other late night hosts do it. by putting harry on the show, they’re encouraging his largely young female fanbase to watch, and then they have him go out there with a joke about a literal child predator trying to get into his concerts to prey on his young female fans…. like am i supposed to just be like “lololol so cute and funny????” no thanks.
