On Monday, the COMEDY CENTRAL announced that jokes about late Paul Walker have been cut.
“Roasts often push the limits of good taste and we give the participants full rein to try things knowing we have the edit to shape the show. Sometimes the line is discovered by crossing it. The Paul Walker references will not be in the telecast,” says a Comedy Central rep.
Walker died in a fatal car crash in 2013. Furious 7.
“SNL” star Pete Davidson said, “Just this past year, Justin got arrested for drag racing. Unfortunately, it wasn’t with Paul Walker.” After some audience groans, Davidson said, “What? He’s doing great! He’s got a movie coming out!”
And Leggero, in a diss of Stewart, said, “I’m not saying Martha Stewart is old, but she needs a new Walker more than the Fast and Furious franchise.” What do you think of the decision to cut the jokes?
