Comedian and TV personality Wayne Brady has apologized for a Trig Palin joke he made as part of Comedy Central’s recent roast of Roseanne Barr, which aired August 12.
Brady posted a statement on Facebook, saying, “I could defend [the joke] as a performer, but I would rather apologize from the bottom of my heart as a father. To the Palins, please know that no malice or harm was meant. To the other families who were touched negatively, I hope you’ll be able to accept this apology as well.”
Brady was booed at the event after targeting comedian Jeff Ross, saying, “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.”
So Wayne Brady JUST realized the Palin joke was offensive? Either don't say it or own it. Time to end those snooze CC roasts anyway.—

For some, the involvement of a Palin means never having to say you’re sorry.
Wayne Brady apologized for an 'insensitive Sarah Palin joke' he made, as if there is such a thing.—

Wayne Brady shouldn't apologize for shit. If the Palin's can't take a joke fuck 'em.—
