Late-Night Show Host James Corden Under Fire After Muppet Discourse Turns Violent

Popular host James Corden, after being accused of gayface by millions after portraying a flamboyant gay man in Ryan Murhphy’s film/musical “The Prom,” Corden finds himself in yet another bath of hot water which, this time, is being heated by Muppet fans.

In an interview with The LA Times last Tuesday, Corden admitted that he had little to no confidence that Elmo, the beloved red muppet from Sesame Street, would be able to make an NBA free throw.

I just don’t see it happening, I’m sorry! He’s got those noodle arms and limp grip and, to be honest, he just lacks the confidence to make the basket.

-Corden’s slander, February 9th 2021

Muppet maniacs from around the world have struck back by emailing Corden hate mail, threatening him with deportation and castration. Nimrod journalist Gina Delphiniowitz managed to speak to Corden via phone interview late last night, and this is what he had to say…

I won’t apologize for what I said. I’m entitled to my opinion and I won’t change my mind on this. Elmo is simply not NBA material. He is trash.

Unfortunately for Corden, someone at our headquarters in Albuquerque, New Mexico leaked this information before this article was published, and Corden faced the consequences of his cutting remarks.

At 2:00 AM EST on February 16th, 2021, James Corden was chased down and run over by a John Deere tractor on 7th avenue. He is in critical condition at Bellevue Hospital, but remains stable. The assailant sped away after the assault, which resulted in a low-speed chase that ultimately ended in the tractor and its pilot evading custody.

We here at The Nimrod thank the anonymous hero that ran down a monster that has had a stranglehold on Hollywood for far too long. Finally, James Corden has paid for his sins.
