James Corden was recently slammed for his inappropriate jokes about Harvey Weinstein. The talk show host then quickly took to social media to apologize for taking his jokes a step too far.

On Sunday, Corden took to Twitter to address the negative criticism he received for making light of Weinstein's history of rape and sexual harassment last week. "To be clear, sexual assault is no laughing matter. I was not trying to make light of Harvey’s inexcusable behavior," he wrote on Twitter. "But to shame him, the abuser, not his victims. I am truly sorry for anyone offended, that was never my intention."

On Friday, the "Late Late Show" star hosted the AmfAR Gala Los Angeles, and he opened with a monologue about the controversial producer. "This is a beautiful room. It's a beautiful night here in L.A. So beautiful, Harvey Weinstein has already asked tonight up to his hotel to give him a massage," he said, as quoted by Us Weekly.

Corden did not stop there and continued poking fun at the film producer. "It has been weird this week though, watching Harvey Weinstein in hot water. Ask any of the women who watched him take a bath," he joked.

His jokes, however, did not sit well with a number of celebrities such as Rose McGowan and Asia Argento, who slammed him on Twitter. The "Charmed" alum called him "piglet," adding that "Hearing the audience's vile roars & laughs show EXACTLY what kind of HOLLYWOOD you really are."

McGowan also asked CBS to donate to East Lost Angeles Women's Center (ELAWC) or support rape culture. "Shame on this pig and everyone who grunted with him," Argento added.

McGowan and Argento are among the many female celebrities who claimed to have been sexually assaulted by Weinstein. Kate Beckinsale also confessed on Instagram that the film mogul made sexual advances to her and that she turned him down multiple times. However, her rejections had somehow affected her career.

"I was called to meet Harvey Weinstein at the Savoy Hotel when I was 17. I assumed it would be in a conference room which was very common. When I arrived, reception told me to go to his room," Beckinsale wrote on Instagram. "He opened the door in his bathrobe. I was incredibly naive and young and it did not cross my mind that this older, unattractive man would expect me to have any sexual interest in him. After declining alcohol and announcing that I had school in the morning I left, uneasy but unscathed."

Due to multiple women coming forward claiming that Weinstein sexually harassed them, his wife, Georgina Chapman, decided to leave him. The designer is now seeking the help of a crisis PR.
