5. A Controversial Joke Got Cut
Ross’ shock factor didn’t stop with his outfit. The comedian made a joke about the recent Aurora, Colo., shooting that was deemed too controversial to make it into the broadcast.
“Seth, congratulations. This is actually a great night for you,” said Ross to fellow roaster Seth Green. “You haven’t gotten this much attention since you shot all those people in Aurora.”
Green, like alleged shooter James Holmes on July 20 at a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises, has a full head of red hair.
“I’m kidding,” Ross continued. “You are not like James Holmes. At least he did something in a movie theater that people remember!”
