Gilbert Gottfried

Roasts Greg Giraldo --

Too Soon?!

9/29/2010 8:43 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Just hours after Greg Giraldo passed away, one of his former Roast-mates -- Gilbert Gottfried -- was already making a joke out of the situation ... but did he go too far?!

Earlier today, Gottfried went to his Twitter page and wrote, "If Greg Giraldo is cremated, will that be the 'Greg Giraldo Roast'?"

We spoke to Gilbert about the tweet ... who told us he has problems expressing his emotions -- but noted, "Greg can't say anything about it now ... I'm not worried about him calling and complaining."

So we gotta ask ...

anyone that says this joke is too soon or its in bad taste is NOT a fan of Gregs point blank, most of the people saying its too sooon (WHAAA!!!) probably never even heard Gregs comedy, what kind of *****fied society are we living in, Greg would be honored!

So what?
If you're a florist and your friend and colleague dies, you send a nice floral arrangement.
If you're a deli owner, you send a nice cold cut platter.
Gilbert's a professional "roaster" - this is the best item he could possibly send his buddy.
Anything less would be a lack of admiration and respect.

Anyone who thinks that it was inappropriate clearly does not know anything about Greg Giraldo, Greg would have LOVED that joke. RIP Greg. You dead bastard.

Greg Geraldo was the greatest roaster there was. he woudlnt have been affended by this so no one else should be, i said since he passed they shuld do a tribute/roast of him it would be hilarious and i think if he was here he would enjoy it.
