Jimmy Kimmel Makes An Offensive Joke
But The Weird Part Is, It’s Actually (Sort Of) Funny

While roasting retired hip-hopper/active sperm donor Flavor Flav, Jimmy Kimmel unexpectedly made a humorous (albeit somewhat offensive) joke comparing the surreality star to dead homicidal wrestler, Chris Benoit. Apparently, not everyone thought it was “Comedy Central appropriate.”

During last night’s four-letter fest in honor of the “Flavor of Love” star, Kimmel was poking fun at the fact that Flav has several children with several different women, when he said that “Chris Benoit is a better father than you.” What, too soon?

A TMZ staffer who was at the roast (airing August 12 on Comedy Central) just happened to be sitting next to two censors for the network. When Kimmel made the crack, the censors looked at each other and laughed while shaking their heads “no.” One immediately put down “Chris Benoit” on a list of jokes to cut.

Oh, come on, people. It’s a joke. Next thing you know, you’re gonna be telling us you had a problem with Bill Maher dressing up as dead Steve Irwin for Halloween! Wait a sec, you did? Geez, you’re uptight! Phew, good thing we’ve decided to play it safe this year, and go as Anna Nicole Smith’s fridge.
