A Change.org petition titled: ‘Remove ‘Spill Your Guts’ Segment On The Late Late Show With James Corden’ has garnered more than 12,300 signatures calling for Corden to put an end to the controversial bit.

The segment, which has past featured stars such as Justin Bieber, Kendall Jenner and Chissy Teigen, sees participants presented with the choice of either answering a revealing question – or dining from a plate of varied culinary selections.

The latest: James Corden, 42, is under pressure to retire a segment on his show titled Spill Your Guts, amid complaints that the segment plays on ‘incredibly culturally offensive and insensitive’ tropes about Asian culture

The petition reads: ‘The foods that are presented are meant to be “gross,” as they are supposed to encourage the guest to answer his questions instead. However, many of the foods that he presents to his guests are actually from different Asian cultures.’

The petition stated that the host, 42, has ‘presented foods such as balut, century old eggs, and chicken feet, and which are often regularly eaten by Asian people. During these segments, he’s openly called these foods “really disgusting,” and “horrific.”‘

The impassioned prose went on: ‘In the wake of the constant Asian hate crimes that have continuously been occurring, not only is this segment incredibly culturally offensive and insensitive, but it also encourages anti-Asian racism…

‘So many Asian Americans are consistently bullied and mocked for their native foods, and this segment amplifies and encourages it…
