Comedy Central Bans Paul Walker Jokes From the Justin Bieber Roast

Date:

Comedy Central is cutting Paul Walker jokes from the Justin Bieber roast.

The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber took place Saturday night in Los Angeles, and a ton of celebrities ranging from Martha Stewart to Will Ferrell showed up to tell their meanest jokes.

While we know a few of the jokes that were told at the pop singer’s expense, most of us losers will have to wait to watch the edited broadcast on Comedy Central on March 30th.

As Variety reports that Comedy Central is apparently not cool with some Paul Walker jokes that were told on Saturday Night. Paul Walker, died in a car accident in 2013, and since Bieber has a reputation for driving like an A-hole, the easy jokes seemed to easy to pass for many comediens. But, according to reports, the audience wasn’t laughing.

“Roasts often push the limits of good taste and we give the participants full reign to try things knowing we have the edit to shape the show,” said a Comedy Central spokesperson in a statement. “Sometimes the line is discovered by crossing it. The Paul Walker references will not be in the telecast.” (Via Variety)

So what are some of the examples of the jokes that were later removed on Saturday?

“‘Move bitch, get out of the way!’ is what Paul Walker should’ve told that tree,” roast veteran Jeff Ross said during his set, referencing Ludacris’ hit song “Move Bitch.” “Too soon? Too fast? Too furious?”

“Just this past year, Justin got arrested for drag racing,” said “Saturday Night Live” star and roaster Pete Davidson. “Unfortunately, it wasn’t with Paul Walker. What? He’s doing great! He’s got a movie coming out!”
