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 ...

I'm sure Greg would have laughed, but I don't know about his family.

Gilbert Gottfried is gross. His screechy voice has totally destroyed a great attraction at Disneyworld..(Tiki Birds)Used to be our fave, don't go there now, thanks to Gottfried.
He's low class to make such a comment.

i agree with most of the above posters, he would have found gottfried's joke funny. he was a comedian, don't forget. still, sucks that he's gone, he was funny. and he liked getting his digs at people, he would have liked this, i think. (the joke wasn't too distasteful)

humorous, but probably bad timing. not everyone agrees with Gilbert's sense of humor as it is, this won't help.

Totally appropriate. Greg is looking down laughing wondering why all of us aren't doing the same.

It does not really matter if Greg would find this funny. What does matter is how Greg's four children and the rest of his family feel about the "joke".

The reason why the Joke is kinda funny is because it is in such bad taste.

This **** is out of your league. Stick to reporting on Coke whores. "Too soon"? You dummies.

It's both horrible and hilarious. What nobody seems to have pointed out yet is that with Greg's death his life finally caught up with his career.

Its how Gilbert deals with grief. He did something similar after 9/11. Let him deal with his grief, over the death of one of his friends, his own way.

I liked him on the Bob Saget Roast... " John Stamos walks into a bar and the bartender says we have a drink named after you. John goes you have a drink named secret ***???" It's the way he said it in that bad voice!! lol... hahahahahahahaa

ps    

death is not about the person that passed away, it's about the people that he left behind. they are the one grieving. so it would be insensitive to them not him. he is in a better place, he has moved on, he does not care...
