'That is the single most upsetting thing you could say': James Corden hits back at Twitter troll

James Corden has responded brilliantly to a person who sent out an appalling tweet after Corden revealed a Game of Thrones spoiler on his TV show.

On a recent episode of The Late, Late Show Corden alluded to what took place in the most recent episode of the hit HBO drama.

It prompted one Twitter user to tell Corden hat they hope "his kid gets cancer".

Corden has three children with his wife Julia, including seven-year-old son Max.

The post, now removed from the platform, read: "It's f***ed up you can't even watch TV without a fat f**k spoiling something... Luckily I got to see it before this, but seriously I hope his kid gets cancer," according to the Evening Standard.

Corden described the post as "the single most upsetting thing I think you could ever say about me or my family".

He took the high ground, pleading for the person to reconsider their words.

"Please take a minute and think about what you just wrote and whether you want to be a person who publicly says such things. I believe you're better than that."

After receiving a response claiming that the original post was "a joke", Corden pressed on with his case.

"Well I saw your hope for my son, my hope for yours is that they never get to read that their mother or father would wish cancer on any child as 'a joke'.

"Because however you defend it to them, they'll never be able to understand how you could do such a thing."

Corden's measured response to the incident has been praised by his followers.

"You handled this with the utmost professionalism. I cannot even believe that people can be so heartless!," one person wrote.

"Very classy reply, James but I seriously doubt that this creature is better than that," another added.
