Justin Bieber's Comedy Central Roast that took place earlier this month reportedly had some pretty offensive Paul Walker related jokes which were taken out for television audiences.
Walker's Fast and Furious 7 co-star Ludacris discussed the inappropriate digs at the late actor, in his recent interview with The Huffington Post.
Ludacris stated that it was insensitive and too early to be joking about Walker's death, and also that these jokes went "too far." He went on to reveal that he was promised that the jokes would be taken out for television audiences, reports Enstars.
"A lot of people took it too far. Basically, it did go too far, and that's what happens at some of these roasts," Ludacris said. "But as long as they edit it to the point where they ride the fine line, it doesn't go over the line, I'm sure we good. Cause we were there for four hours. So they have to edit it down to two. So I'm sure they'll get the best of the best."
The actor/ rapper didn't name the people who cracked the jokes about Walker but explained that it was not in good taste. "It's not one particular person, there were just certain jokes that were-and I'm not saying anything towards me-I'm just saying there were some jokes that weren't appropriate," he added.
"You know, there were some Paul Walker jokes that I didn't feel like were appropriate. And I was told and promised that they would edit those out...Some of those were over the line."
After the roast took place, Comedy Central issued the following statement:
"Roasts often push the limits of good taste and we give the participants full reign to try things knowing we have to edit the shape of the show. Sometimes the line is discovered by crossing it. The Paul Walker references will not be in the telecast."
