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 who thinks it's inappropriate or too soon clearly didn't know Greg or his personality. He'd be laughing his ass off right now.

entirely appropriate and the guy would have got the joke,
and would have laughed at "Greg can't say anything about it now ... I'm not worried about him calling and complaining."

My vote says Greg would have loved the joke; especially because it is at his expense. The man made his living making jokes at other people's expense and having them making jokes about him. Why would he want to change now?

Perhaps it's Gottfried saying goodbye to Giraldo the way he would've wanted it...

Gilbert's joke is the greatest tribute he could have given to Greg, who specialized in off-color, tasteless jokes, jokes that might be considered "too soon." Wherever he is, Greg is laughing his ass off. Gilbert is great.

I'm sure Greg would have accepted this joke, then countered it with something more hilarious. His feud with Lisa Lampanelli during Roasts will surely be missed.

Good joke Gilbert Gottfried. He has gotten much funnier here lately. He killed on the roast of David Hasselhoff. Not in poor taste since he was an edgy comedian himself.
