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 ...

It's crude but likely how one funny man says goodbye to another!

Greg is probably laughing at that. Come on. He had a sense of humour.

Greg was a comedian, so chances are he would of had a chuckle.
but his family who is grieving just hours after their loss, probably won't find it so funny.

Because his family are humorless dolts who weren't aware that Greg was a comedian (allegedly!) and never saw a roast?

I'm a fan of Giraldo. And I don't give a **** what Giraldo would have thought about the joke. As a FAN, I thought the joke was crappy because not even an hour had passed and Gottfried (who IS he anyway) is making jokes about burning his body. NOT FUNNY AT ALL.

Gilbert is a fellow comedian. I don't think Greg would think this is in poor taste.

What's most important to remember is that if, say, a week ago, Gilbert asked Greg if this joke would've been okay to tell after he died, Greg would've been fine with it.

Just saw greg last month at the Comedy Club. He is great. I think he would have laughed and wished he would have said it. He will be missed by everyone who loved him.
