Kimmel's Benoit Burn

Too Hot for TV

7/23/2007 11:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

There is a line you can cross when roasting Flavor Flav -- and Jimmy Kimmel was the one who crossed it.

Jimmy Kimmel, Chris Benoit, Flavor Flav
During last night's four-letter fest in honor of the "Flavor of Love" star, Kimmel was poking fun at the fact that Flav has several children with several different women, when he said that "Chris Benoit is a better father than you." What, too soon?

A TMZ staffer who was at the roast (airing August 12 on Comedy Central) just happened to be sitting next to two censors for the network. When Kimmel made the crack, the censors looked at each other and laughed while shaking their heads "no." One immediately put down "Chris Benoit" on a list of jokes to cut. Another joke to make the list came at the end, when the Queen of Mean, Lisa Lampanelli, called the "Flavor of Love" girls sprinkled throughout the audience "nappy headed bitches."

C**t, c**ksucker and ni**a were fine -- but current events, ixnay?

Idle threats Tony, I guess I had you pegged wrong, when I called you an 11yr old, I thought you were some kid making asinine comments, thanks for confirming your an adult, making asinine comments. Where exactly do I contradict myself, I refer to you as a child, because of your comments, not because of being a wrestling fan, if you actually read what I said, you'd see they are two different statements. Maybe if you didn't get all huffy you'd see that. Also proof read your own crap, I think in your last line you meant shouldn't as opposed to should, because "should" is what we're doing here.
You call me a pu$$y and tough guy, when your doing the same thing. Practice what you preach douche.
As for Jimmy Kimmel, if you've seen his act once, you've seen everything and trust me I do switch the channell when the jacka$$ is on, but thank you for letting me know I had the choice, wasn't quite sure about that. It's also good to know Jimmy isn't alone in the douche category, he needs company too. So why don't you join Jimmy for those drinks and you know, drive home.
Anyhow, thanks for the laugh, you made my day, say hi to your Mom.

A pretty tastless comment. Actually I thought the entire show was tastless and not a bit funny, but I won't cry that I was offended. I got me this remote thing that changes the channel, and I'm not ascared to use it.

Everyone needs to lighten up. In comedy, there is no limits..... especially at a roast.

This one cracked me up

It was at a roast, most jokes are tasteless. Who cares what he said?
