A costumed Camila Cabello, James Corden, Idina Menzel and Billy Porter ― along with a group of background dancers ― held up traffic at a Los Angeles intersection while singing Jennifer Lopez’s “Let’s Get Loud” in a video shared by the Twitter account “Film Updates” on Saturday.
While some people may have found this festive and fun, the stunt mostly received derision and rage on Twitter. Out of the cast members, Corden got the brunt of the mockery, probably because he was the one dressed as a mouse and thrusting his pelvis at the air.
thanks a lot Film Updates, now i have to live with the image of corden thrusting at me in a mouse suit.

I just cannot imagine being enough of an extrovert to do this. I think I could be held at gunpoint and my answer would be ‘no, I’m fine actually’ https://t.co/d5vNRvSvKS

Is this why people hate theater kids?

James Corden does so much work and gets cast in so much stuff that gets shoved in front of so many eyeballs, and it all fucking sucks ass and everybody hates it. No wonder people think he’s a psyop

You let James Corden get too powerful. Look at us now. Look how far we’ve fallen. Not even God’s light can reach us now. You pierced the veil and let in something that was never meant to be a part of this universe. And he hungers. Nothing will satiate but the end of everything. https://t.co/cLyM5VwRJ6
