'Dear America he's your problem now': James Corden BANNED from the world in post shame meme fest
James Corden is no stranger to making headlines. On October 17, Keith McNally, the owner of Balthazar, slammed and temporarily banned the 44-year-old comedian-host for alleged rude misconduct in his restaurant. McNally took it to social media and said, “James Corden is a Hugely gifted comedian, but a tiny Cretin of a man." However, this is not the first time Corden has been accused, many have called out ‘The Late Late Show’ host in the past for his alleged rude behavior.
The list of the accusations against Corden includes a 2017 clip from an episode of ‘The Late Late Show With James Corden’ which featured fellow host Jimmy Kimmel. The pair played a game called Spill Your Guts during which Kimmel asked Corden a series of questions. Kimmel asked Corden, “Name two of the cameramen in this room.” Corden laughed and responded, "That is a great question,” adding, “Different crew tonight, actually,” while reaching for a fish smoothie. The video resurfaced on social media on October 18 after Corden was bashed by McNally. Commenting on his behavior, as reported by Joe, one of the fans who attended a taping of the show in September 2019, said, “James doesn't really interact with the audience, in fact he didn't even wave, acknowledge or thank us when leaving the studio which I thought was a bit unnecessary.”
As per TripAdvisor reviews, one review from August 2021, read, "I managed to get in and was seated in the second row with my partner. Anyone who was overweight (of Corden's stature or larger, let's say) was ushered into seats situated at the back. At one point, before things kicked off, I actually overheard James Corden say to one of his staff, 'I don't want to have to look at him,' implying that they ought to move him to another seat,” states Radar.
In 2021, Corden reportedly came under fire from BTS fans after he allegedly made a series of jokes about the boyband on his show. The comedian allegedly made fun of the South Korean group’s appearance at the United Nations General Assembly. He said that the group was “pretty unusual visitors” for the UN while referring to the group’s fanbase as “15-year-old girls." He later apologized saying, "We did two jokes, which I didn’t think were in any way offensive to anybody," as per Independent.
According to The New Yorker, his 'Gavin & Stacey' costar Rob Brydon too confronted him and told Corden, "Look this is a bit awkward to say, but I'm just hearing these things about you, and you've got to know that the way you behave has an effect on people." Brydon also reportedly said James' sisters told him to stop being a "dickhead."
James Corden's response to recent restaurant drama
During an interview with The New York Times to promote his upcoming Amazon Prime series 'Mammals,' the 44-year-old Corden said, "I haven't done anything wrong, on any level. So why would I ever cancel this [interview]? I was there. I get it," and added "I feel so Zen about the whole thing. Because I think it's so silly."
Apart from calling him out, many people created a meme fest. Ryanair, the low-cost Irish airline, led the way. And this prompted other brands, including those with no connection to James Corden, to issue similar bans. The Nebraska Humane Society, Riot Fest, and even Ba Sing Se were among them.

While the meme fest continued many asked the US to keep the British comedian, with one saying, "A reminder that the UK is not taking James Corden back once he's done with that terrible talk show on your side of the pond." While another wrote, "Can James Corden fix up his attitude in America so everyone likes him again? The UK doesn’t want him back."

Another individual wrote, "I'm not surprised. James Corden has always been an insufferable tosser. It's the reason he left the UK & came to America, but now Americans are sick of him too. I'd say ship him to the Artic, but I don't want to wish that kind of foulness on the polar bears there." One more user said, "Dear America, No, we will NOT take James Corden back. He's YOUR problem now! Sincerely The UK PS. Thank you for Stanley Tucci - we will HAPPILY keep him."
