Like the snake that eats its own tail, the continual cancellation of personalities from the liberal media may soon claim another victim, as The Late Late Show host James Corden faces heat for a segment on his show that has offended people in the Asian American community over “racially insensitive” content.
A 24-year-old TikTok user named Kim Saira launched a viral campaign against Corden, calling the host out for racially insensitive content from his segment titled “Spill Your Guts.”
The skit involves guests being forced to eat generally unpalatable foods as the main gag. What Saira pointed out was the predominant use of Asian cuisine in the segment, which she considers a pointed attack toward the Asian community, perpetrated by Corden.
James Corden under fire for controversial 'Spill Your Guts' segment as 11K people have signed petition claiming it's racist toward Asian people https://t.co/3uT38ftbkX— Daily Mail Online (@MailOnline) June 11, 2021
Saira launched the campaign based on the following: “The foods that are presented are meant to be ‘gross,’ as they are supposed to encourage the guest to answer his questions instead. However, many of the foods that he presents to his guests are actually from different Asian cultures. He’s presented foods such as balut, century old eggs and chicken feet, and which are often regularly eaten by Asian people.”
News of the backlash directed at Corden may come as a shock to many who see the late-night host as a darling in the eyes of pop culture. Frequently hired to host award shows and drawing A-List guests to his program, Corden’s mainly milquetoast appeal with audiences comes from his ability to remain inoffensive in his commentary about current social and political news. In other words, he largely sides with the consensus.
The network has yet to release a statement or response from the host regarding the backlash, and whether the “Spill Your Guts” segment will be canceled.
Corden’s first run-in with the cavalcade of cancellation came when the actor played a gay character in a 2020 film and received a Golden Globe nomination for his role, which enraged members of the LGBT community for Corden’s “pretending to be a gay man.”
“James Corden getting nominated as a straight guy playing a gay guy in a critically panned, vampish, stereotypical, borderline offensive portrayal that nearly wrecked the whole musical is proof that there’s no justice,” said an advocate for the efforts to denounce Corden’s nomination.
Comedian Eric Andre has also spoken out against James Corden, expressing blunt, negative insight on the late-night host’s “nice guy” persona. Andre said, “Is that what cancel culture’s devolved to? ‘That guy’s not nice!’ James Corden is f – ked if that’s the only criteria to get called out. James Corden and Lorne Michaels are screwed! They’re trembling in their f–king boots.”
Corden joins television hosts Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen DeGeneres, and a growing list of Hollywood celebrities being called out for inflammatory actions in their past that have contradicted their progressive rhetoric. Ask Ellie Kemper, who most recently was accused of having ties to the KKK based on a ball she attended when she was 19.
Out of all the sins of the past, we still firmly believe that Corden should’ve been canceled for his role in Cats.

Who cares? Anyone that is “canceled” is only ostracized from that segment…its an opportunity to go elsewhere and prosper. Think about it, if people tried to cancel Candace Owens from Daily Wire, NOTHING would happen; they would laugh. Eventually, they will eat their own and run out of people who respond to their sh*t. Cancel James Corden, Jimmy Kimmel, whomever. We don’t need ’em and if they want work they can always come to Texas and do their show here. We’ll take their business
Whatever horror happens to the POS Corden is fine with me
I’m not buying Corden as straight. No way, no how.
Lol. And really, can you imagine a job interview where they ask about your sexual proclivities? We’re looking for a character that is a pedophile, are you experienced in child molestation? Receive or give?
Yunno, if we continue cultivating pussies in this country, there will be no male presence left to procreate. We will all just die in place while being forced to change the name of our country from America to Karen.
Glad I have no idea who the eff any of these losers are. Could give a crap about tick tock or whatever the hell it’s called as well.
Fire ’em all!
(Sorry, listening to Metallica right now)
There must be people that scour stories and media to find something that offends them.
I would find it funny to see a show in Japan, for example, that finds American dishes disgusting. It would actually be kind of interesting to find out what they think is gross.
Balut is nasty. Tongue makes the best tacos.
Opinions are like assholes; everybody has them, and unless they are yours, you think they stink.
Pop culture is toxic. And ridiculously stupid.
It’s very very difficult to be canceled if you are wearing a blue jersey. They protect their own.
Jeffrey Toobin cranked one out on camera and he still* has a job with CNN.
So ties to the KKK is grounds for cancelling?? Joe Biden should be cancelled.
Asians are learning to be offended. Most don’t care about this crap and focus on work (or studying) and family.
I thought fat and gay was Ok. I need a new rule book.
FYI. Asian males make about 15% MORE than white males. From the same DOL study that democrats use to falsely claim that in general “men make more than women.” Any real interpretation of the data has to include education, years of experience, continuous vs. interrupted work history, etc. I’ve been trying to generate outrage on behalf of us white boys, but nothing yet. haha
Who cares about this? They may as well cancel the rest of the late night hosts since no one watches them either.
I do like me some good Thai food.
