Linkin Park filmed their episode of Carpool Karaoke days before Chester Bennington‘s death. James Corden is reportedly leaving it up to the Bennington family and his band mates to decide whether the episode will still air. James told Associated Press that he definitely won’t be making this decision on his own:
“We will approach in whichever manner his family or the people that were involved in that episode, however they would like it to be handled,” James said of the episode which was scheduled to air in October. “We consider it to be not our decision to make. We will navigate as delicately as possible and I’m just an ear to whatever wishes they would want because I don’t think there’s any other way we could deal with it, really. It’s completely up to them and that’s a conversation we haven’t even thought about having right now. It’s a tragedy.”
Chester’s wife, Talinda Bennington, took to Twitter to thank the Late Late Show host.
