Justin Bieber Roast Censored Before Airing

Paul Walker Jokes Crossed the Line

In the US its an established TV happening that polarizing personalities from the entertainment industry agree to be ridiculed in front of an audience by fellow entertainers. Through the years, the jabs have been increasingly mean and drastic, oftentimes aiming for the maximal shock effect. Career, private life or imaginary - none of the participants leave a Celebrity Roast unscathed.

In the past, such extravagant characters such as Pamela Anderson, Donald Trump, Charlie Sheen or James Franco (the latest victim) had to sit on the chair and now, the roast of Canadian singer Justin Bieber is ahead. Is has long been teased by Comedy Central and Bieber is most certainly an easy target for various verbal attacks. We'll all be wiser when the show is aired on March 30th, 2015. But we won't get to see all that has been said.

Comedian Jeff Ross has been a regular contributor to the format for many years and is well-known for his performances that feature both creativity and very hard punchlines. During the Bieber roast, Ross and another colleague made references to the death of actor Paul Walker who died in a car accident in 2014. Variety has two examples:

“‘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!”

The audience didn't welcome these jokes and Walkers co-star Ludacris from the Fast & Furious franchise couldn't laugh, either. That's nothing new for Jeff Ross and he will most likely not lose any sleep on Comedy Central's decision to remove those passages. The TV station issued a statement saying:

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 rep in a statement. “Sometimes the line is discovered by crossing it. The Paul Walker references will not be in the telecast.
