Ludacris was not happy about Paul Walker jokes at the Justin Bieber Comedy Central Roast also thanks Ja Rule for his very successful Fast and Furious role!
Famous rapper and Furious 7 actor did not mince words on Dish Nation! Video below!!
Ludacris who is known for his Fast and Furious role also being a multi-platinum selling hip hop artist was on Dish Nation this morning. While on the show the host brought up some rumors that have been on the Internet about another hip hop artist who didn’t take a follow-up role which than paved the road for Luda to end up making loads of money and keep his fame riding into a solid acting career. While poor Ja Rule ended up going to jail for tax evasion problems.
Not only was that little tidbit discovered but also the rumors of Paul Walker death jokes that were said at the Justin Bieber Comedy Central Roast were also confirmed.
On Ja Rule turning down Fast Furious roles that than lead to Ludacris to join the franchise:
Ja Rule – was offered to return to Fast and Furious franchise but turned down John Singletons $500,000 offer and didn’t return calls because he was “too busy” for it.
“We need to thank Ja Rule for that…..thank you brother.”
Ludacris when asked about being in the Justin Bieber Roast:
“I was not feeling it. I almost didn’t make it through I was about to slap someone in the face.”
When asked if it was Jeff Ross jokes that he didn’t like the most.
“Jeff Ross was one of them…..I went up to all of them.”
As he said in the interview with Dish Nation, Ludacris clearly feels any jokes about Paul Walker, even at a roast were not acceptable no matter what.
After doing some reporting I was able to find the jokes that were taken out by Comedy Central and they were indeed in very bad taste. I’m pretty sure we can ‘assume’ the person Luda wanted to smack might have been new SNL cast member Pete Davidson.
“‘Move bitch, get out of the way!’ is what Paul Walker should’ve told that tree,”
“Too soon? Too fast? Too furious?” – roast veteran Jeff Ross said during his set, referencing Ludacris’ hit song “Move Bitch.”
“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!” – said “Saturday Night Live” star and roaster Pete Davidson
Even Bieber opposed to references to Walker when asked after the show if there was any joke that went too far, the pop star said he “didn’t particularly like the Paul Walker jokes.”
The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
