Ludacris was "promised" jokes about his late co-star Paul Walker would be removed from Justin Bieber's Comedy Central roast because they "weren't appropriate."
He told E! News: "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. 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."
Sources previously revealed the 37-year-old rapper - whose real name is Christopher Brian Bridges - was outraged when Jeff said: "Move b***h, get out of the way, is what Paul Walker should've told that tree. Too soon? Too fast? Too furious?"
Fellow comedian Pete Davidson also quipped: "Just this past year, Justin got arrested for drag racing. Unfortunately, it wasn't with Paul Walker. What? He's doing great! He's got a movie coming out!"
A spokesperson for Comedy Central previously insisted the jokes would be cut from the upcoming show, saying: "Roasts often push the limits of good taste ... sometimes the line is discovered by crossing it. The Paul Walker references will not be in the telecast."
