You know that one guy that gets drunk and then tries to kiss everyone at parties? James Corden is very much that guy.

The Late Late Show host known for his Carpool Karaoke segments planted a kiss on Sean Spicer at the Emmys, and the photo made rounds on social media shortly after.

The former White House press secretary made a surprise appearance at the awards show Sunday, cracking jokes about President Donald Trump.

To the disappointment and outrage of many Twitter users, a photographer captured what appeared to be a giddy Corden kissing Spicer’s cheek backstage.

“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,” Corden said in the opening monologue of his show Monday night, which was rife with jokes—and absent of apology—about the photo.

Many people compared the photo of Corden and Spicer to last year when Jimmy Fallon ruffled Trump’s hair on the Tonight Show.

“To be fair, everyone was kissing ass last night at the Emmys,” went another of Corden’s jokes about the photo on his show. “I just happened to kiss the biggest one there.”

After saying the incident was a “one-time thing,” Corden showed pictures of himself kissing several celebrities, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Harry Styles and Daniel Radcliffe.

“Basically, what I’m saying is, I need to learn how to shake hands!” Corden said.
