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?”

Those of you commenting on the negative side have obviously never watched a Celebrity Roast. That joke was very tame in comparison to most. Get over it!

He's disgusting. So called 'mean comedians' are not talented enough to provide laughs without cutting down others. Wayne Brady is a jerk he's proved this time and time again. Dump his a** to make a terrible 'joke' about a little boy with down's syndrome!!!

Yes it's true anything goes at a roast. But you don't bring a child into the joke especially one with special needs. There wasn't anyome in Hollywood he could have cited for his attempt at humor. Hollywood just can't leave a decent mom and child alone just because she differs politically. Just MEAN. I'LL NEVER WATCH WAYNE OR KATY SAGAL AGAIN!! JERKS!!

First of all i don't get the connection between Wayne Brady and Rosanne Barr. What was he doing there? An odd match.....Didn't put these 2 together as even knowing one another. Don't get it. and furthermore, Brady was dead wrong for that comment on Trig. Would he himself like it, if someone related to him had these problems as Trig does. This is an innocent child. Want to Roast someone, that's fine, but don't involve innocent children. PERIOD....I used to like Wayne Brady, and thought he was a class act, after hearing him last nite, i have lost all respect for him. I think he's a total loser and moron........

Wayne Brady's a fool. Not because of the joke. That 'ish was funny. He's a fool because he just lost 99% of his fan base: old, white Republicans.

Scrubs actor John McGinley has a son with Down's Syndrome...and he has blasted commentators on tv, tv shows, movies, comedians, that use derogatory words to describe DS kids & adults. He's gone to Congress, he's worked on fundraisers, he would have hammered Wayne Brady..... It's a child with a medical disability - why is that ok to joke about. The Ross jokes about Sandusky & Paterno weren't that funny either....what does he do that is funny? Not much. Ditto for Brady.

Albert Pujlos child, McGinley's child, Jamie Foxx's sister, hey, Wayne, make a joke about a Downs Syndrome person in front of those guys...see what happens...

I applaud Palin, and others, who have embraced their child, and love them and treat them the same as the rest of the family....and that's how she presented him to the nation....he's a loved kid, and politics aside, that's what matters.

I GUARANTEE none of you people would've cared if Jeff Ross told that joke, or any of the other people on that stage said it.

You should have known better. This is something Jeffery Ross should have said and you wonder why black folks think your whack.
