James Corden has mocked Jada Pinkett Smith on the Late Late Show just days after her husband, Will Smith, slapped Chris Rock at the Oscars.
Smith very publicly slapped Rock after the comedian compared Jada to G.I Jane, which was highly inappropriate and insensitive as she has been very open about her hair loss journey due to alopecia.
After getting back to his seat after the assault, Smith could be seen yelling “Keep my wife’s name out your f***ing mouth!”
The CBS Late Late Show host, performed a take on Encanto, the movie, while discussing with the cast members how to tastefully report on Sunday’s incident at the Academy Awards:
‘James, we have to at least acknowledge [what happened],’ one producer said, before James chimed in.
“we don’t talk about Jada, no no no”
The 43-year-old goes on to sing about other events that happened on Sunday evening, such as Beyonce performing her song Be Alive and then continues to poke fun at the Will Smith/Jada Pinkett Smith disaster.
Fans of the show were not impressed, with some writing:
‘James Corden making the worst jokes that you will ever hear,’
‘This is genius because James Corden instantly killed Encanto and Will Smith Oscar memes. It’s like hitting two birds with one stone.’
‘I genuinely think it’s literally impossible to find someone as unfunny as James Corden,’
