The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber airs tonight on Comedy Central. And things have gotten awkward even before the pre-taped special premieres. SNL’s Pete Davidson called out fellow Bieber roaster Natasha Leggero on Twitter for using one his jokes that he performed while shooting the roast earlier in the month.
Natasha used a joke very similar to Pete’s roast joke while doing a taping of Comedy Central’s @midnight this week. Both jokes were at Jeff Ross’ expense. On @midnight, Natasha did the line, “Jeff Ross looks like someone put a butter sculpture of Mr. Clean in the microwave.” During the Bieber roast where all 3 comedians appeared, Pete Davidson said to Jeff Ross, “You look like someone put Seth Rogen in the microwave.” The similarity caused Pete Davidson to take the issue to Twitter in this comedy version of “Who wore it better?”
Here was Natasha’s responses to Pete found on Bustle.com where there is an apology. Both Pete’s and Natasha’s tweets about the matter have been deleted.
The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber is tonight at 10pm et featuring roasters Pete Davidson, Natasha Leggero and Jeff Ross who looks like somebody put something that looks like someone else in a microwave.
