Jeff Ross 'Batman' Massacre Joke

breaking news

0806_jeffrey_ross_01Comedy Central is censoring Jeff Ross ... refusing to air the jokes he made about the "Dark Knight Rises" massacre during this weekend's taping of the "Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne."

Ross -- who came to the event dressed like Joe Paterno, accompanied by two young topless boys -- has been under fire for cracking the following zinger, directed at Seth Green:

“Seth, congratulations. This is actually a great night for you ... you haven’t gotten this much attention since you shot all those people in Aurora. ... I’m kidding. You are not like James Holmes. At least he did something in a movie theater that people remember!”

After the taping, one of the producers announced that the joke would be cut from the August 12 broadcast.

Ross later admitted he crossed the line -- but told NBC News, "That is what Roasts are about."

People need to stop feeling so bad for the victims, they got to meet Christian Bale. Some of them even got to meet Heath Ledger.

So, It's ok for him to do his act dressed like a child molester but telling a joke about the "Colorado Shooting" not "Dark Knight shooting" is alright ??
