James Corden is one of the nicest people on TV, but even he has to deal with deplorable comments from trolls.
On Monday night the Late Late Show host posted his newest monologue in which he jokes about the scary escalation of Donald Trump‘s trade war with China.
(You know, the one everyone said was a bad idea but Trump said was “good and easy to win.” Actually, it was costing American businesses over a billion dollars a month BEFORE the latest tariff increase.)
One viewer responded to the bit with pure bile.
But it wasn’t a Trump supporter bitter over the political humor — no, it was apparently a Game of Thrones fan who didn’t like that Corden referenced the show’s latest twist in his punchline.
24 hours after Game Of Thrones airs can you really be pissed everyone is talking about it?
Well, if you’re this guy, you can. The “fan,” who has since been suspended from Twitter, wrote:
“It’s f**ked up you can’t even watch TV without a fat f**k spoiling something… Luckily I got to see it before this, but seriously I hope his kid gets cancer.”
We’re guessing the guy didn’t expect Corden to see his awful comment, but he did. And he responded — taking the high road. He wrote:
“That is, without question, the single most upsetting thing I think you could ever say about me or my family. Please take a minute and think about what you just wrote and whether you want to be a person who publicly says such things. I believe you’re better than that x”
The late night host has three children, though we assume the troll didn’t actually know that. They don’t tend to think about the ramifications of their comments.
But Corden tried to make the guy do so, responding directly to him:
“Well I saw your hope for my son. My hope for yours is that they never get to read that their mother or father would wish cancer on any child as ‘a joke’. Because however you defend it to them, they’ll never be able to understand how you could do such a thing. Night x”
Very well said!
Let this be a lesson to all the Internet trolls out there saying horrible things — people see that stuff, and it’s horrific.
If you wouldn’t say it to their face, DON’T SAY IT ONLINE!
