The “Late Late Show” host faced a backlash after Variety magazine shared this snap of him embracing Spicer on Sunday:
Corden addressed the issue during the opening monologue of his show on Monday night.
“Anyone ever have that feeling when you get a little drunk and then wake up the next morning and think, ‘Oh God, who did I kiss last night?’ It’s a bit like that,” he said.
Corden claimed to understand why “some people have been disappointed by this photo” and revealed that “in truth, I’m disappointed by it as well.”
“I am, I have been reading a lot of harsh comments on Twitter today, and I hear you loud and clear,” he added. “Truly, I do.”
