James Corden is to be cast in a Netflix lesbian love story, the Internet is not happy


The Tony-nominated Broadway show The Prom revolves around a lesbian high school student who is denied permission to bring a female date to prom. The film adaptation by the streaming giant Netflix is to come later this year and it is already under fire because the Late Late Show host James Corden is involved. The Christmas special of BBC comedy Gavin and Stacey, which Corden both starred in and co-wrote with Ruth Jones, divided viewers over the unnecessary inclusion of a homophobic slur in The Pogues’ song ‘Fairytale of New York’, and that is why the Carpool Karaoke driver apparently lost his status of an ally. So, the queer community decided that the lesbian-themed drama directed by Pose creator Ryan Murphy should have no place for Corden. One person, in response to Netflix, wrote on Twitter: “I’d rather get hot and heavy with Dominic Cummings than watch this.” Another said: “Haven’t lesbian teenagers suffered enough? James Corden?”
