Wayne Brady

BOOED for Trig Palin

Joke at Roseanne Roast

8/13/2012 5:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



081312_brady_roastFile this under "Things You Didn't Expect to Hear Today" -- Wayne Brady is under fire for a RACY joke he made at the "Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne" .... WAYNE BRADY!!!

So what subject was so touchy that the crowd actually booed?? Brady made a joke featuring Sarah Palin's son Trig ... who suffers from Down Syndrome.

Now for the joke ... which Brady made while addressing Jeff Ross:

"Now the thing is Jeff ... these are all jokes, and I really like you. I really, really like you. But a lot of people hate you, especially Sarah Palin because you remind her of what Trig is going to look like when he’s 40."

After some boos, Brady shot back, "Oh, now you boo me? F*ck y’all. I don’t want to hear that. These people say all of this sh*t about me, and you boo me because of Trig?”

Don't comedians get passes as long as they're attacking Republicans and, you know, defenseless babies of republicans?

You're all pansies. South Park does worse than this and they're praised for it. He's a comedian on a show that's known for crossing the line, if something stupid like that will offend you, why are you watching it?

That joke was tame; c'mon. If you want to hear classy jokes go to a board meeting in Trump tower.

Say what you will about Sarah Palin, why attack an innocent baby who can't defend itself? That's a coward's joke.

I think it's a tough call, but the reason it may tilt toward unacceptable is he is making fun of a real person with a real physical disability. He can say Jeff is physically disabled, he can say Jeff has Down's Syndrome, but to turn it into a comparision between Jeff and a mother who is dealing with a real child with a real physical disability is ... for some I'm sure ... too much. I realize Sarah Palin is an easy target, but leave the physically handicapped child out of it.

I usually can ignore ignorant remarks by celebrites with a low I Q but bringing a baby with a handicap into his entertainment was a low blow.
