Jokes about late Paul Walkers would not be aired in Comedy Central’s roast of Justin Bieber.

The remarks were made by comedians Jeff Ross and Natasha Leggero about the deceased ‘Fast and Furious’ star but they will be edited out when the special airs on March 30, reported TheWrap.

“Roasts often push the limits of good taste and we give the participants full rein to try things knowing we have the edit to shape the show,” a Comedy Central spokesperson said in a statement.

“Sometimes the line is discovered by crossing it. The Paul Walker references will not be in the telecast.”

The 21-year-old Bieber too said that he did not like Walker jokes. The actor was killed in November 2013 in a fiery car accident in Santa Clarita, California.
