Paul Walker Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber Jokes Cut

The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber airs on March 30, what will not air are jokes about the recently deceased actor Paul Walker. According to several reports, both Justin Bieber and rapper Ludacris, were offended by jokes that made fun of the actors death.

Comedy Central cut the jokes after members of the audience refused to laugh, and at least one person outwardly booed the jokes.

The special, which was filmed in Los Angeles Saturday night, featured a few jokes about the Fast and Furious star who died in a car crash November 30, 2013.

According to a Comedy Central spokesperson, the jokes went too far.”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,” the statement read. “Sometimes the line is discovered by crossing it. The Paul Walker references will not be in the telecast.”

Comedian Jeff Ross offered the most offensive of jokes, using Ludacris lyrics to proclaim, “Move b—-, get out of the way. That’s what Paul Walker should have told that tree.”
