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 feel like though it was a bit early to do the joke, it is a joke Greg himself would have done and therefore it is an appropriate send off to the comedy brain.

A bit early, seriously a week or two should have gone by first...

I think they all have a link together, they get each others jokes, its an inside thing and Im sure he would of chuckled at it.

Giraldo's floating around right now saying something like, "God bless you, you little elf sized, screaming, novelty based, jokeless, parrot voicing excuse for a man. By the way, god said you're ***"

Gilbert is a s***bag with no taste and desperate for laughs. He should choke on the Aflack's duck feathers. You ugly rat

Greg was a comedian and he did a lot of celebrity roasts - not only would he have found that funny, he'd be pissed he didn't think of it first!!

If this were any other industry, I'd say it was tasteless. However, Greg Giraldo and Gilbert Gottfried were "Roast Buddies" (for lack of a better phrase), and comments like that are the norm. This is what they do. You might even say it's almost expected of them.

That having been said, I'll give Gilbert a pass on this.

Rest in Peace, Greg Giraldo.

the biggest tribute to a comedian is send him/her off with style. Yeah, they would say good one.

Don't get droopy on them, they will come from beyond and make jokes about you!

great style to send off a great comedian!

As a comedian and sommeone who worked with Greg he would have laughed like the rest of us comedians did. You have to be one of us to understand us!

you s888 as999 will try to start trouble anywhere you can. The man probably would have done the same for his bud.

Dam, TMZ what the hell is your problem. You get more ignorant with your stories twice a day now.

I may have to start getting news from Trashy Sun

It was only funny if it made Greg's family laugh. He wasn't just a comedian to them; he was a husband and father. Sorry to see you go Greg. Every time I saw you on the tube I knew I would be laughing my ass off soon. RIP buddy.
