Comedy Central has revealed that some over-the-top material from Justin Bieber‘s roast, including jokes involving Paul Walker.
“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,” a spokesperson for Comedy Central said. “Sometimes the line is discovered by crossing it.”
The references to Paul Walker would “not be in the telecast,” the spokesperson said.
Even Bieber, when asked about which jokes went too far, revealed his distaste for the Paul Walker jokes.
Many of the jokes referenced provocative incidents such as ISIS, the missing Malaysian Airlines flight, 9/11, abortion, the University of Oklahoma scandal, the Bill Cosby rape case and Bruce Jenner‘s gender change.
