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.”

For some, the involvement of a Palin means never having to say you’re sorry.
