James Corden under fire for controversial ‘Spill Your Guts’ segment amid Change.org petition – –


James Corden is under pressure to remove a segment from his show called Spill Your Guts, amid complaints that the segment plays on “incredibly offensive and culturally insensitive” tropes of Asian culture.

The latest: James Corden, 42, is under pressure to remove a segment from his show called Spill Your Guts, amid complaints that the segment plays on “incredibly offensive and culturally insensitive” tropes of Asian culture

The petition noted the increase in anti-Asian crimes, adding that “many Asian Americans are constantly intimidated and mocked for their native foods, and this segment amplifies and encourages it.”

Background: The segment presents participants with the choice of answering a revealing question or dining on a plate of varied culinary selections.
