NEW YORK (1010 WINS) – Late-night host James Corden is responding to Bill Maher after the comedian said people should stop promoting body acceptance.

"Fat-shaming doesn't need to end; it needs to make a comeback," Maher said on an episode of his HBO show “Real Time” last week.

Maher said “some amount of shame is good.”

Corden addressed Maher’s comments on “The Late Late Show” Thursday, saying that many factors contribute to obesity and that shaming people does more harm.

"There's a common and insulting misconception that fat people are stupid and lazy and we're not," Corden said. "We get it, we know. We know that being overweight isn't good for us and I've struggled my entire life trying to manage my weight and I suck at it," Corden continued.

Corden said fat-shaming is just another form of “bullying.”

"We're not all as lucky as Bill Maher. We don't all have a sense of superiority that burns 35,000 calories a day," Corden quipped.
