Comedy Central has pulled a joke by Jeff Ross on the recent Aurora, Colorado shootings from its upcoming broadcast of The Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne, reports TheWrap. Ross directed the gag at actor Seth Green, joking, "Seth, you haven't gotten this much attention since you shot all those people in Aurora. You're actually not like [accused shooter] James Holmes. He was doing things in a theater that people remember."
Ross invited more controversy with his attire, appearing at the taping dressed as convicted child molester and former Penn State football assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, flanked by two young men sporting only football helmets and towels.
Last month, Dane Cook cracked a joke about the Aurora shootings and later issued an apology. The Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne will air on August 12th.
