Last week, every social media outlet was blowing up with news of the Justin Bieber Roast on Comedy Central hosted by the comedy king himself, Kevin Hart. Still, the fun didn’t stop there. Kevin wasn’t the only one dissing the young star. Alongside Kevin were celebrities such as Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Martha Stewart, and Shaquille O’Neal to name a few.
During the roast, some major shade was thrown along with insults that were downright savage. Though it was Bieber’s choice to subject himself to the public humiliation one has to ask, “Where do you draw the line?”
I’m all for a little good-natured abuse; Bieber could use a few stabs to his ego, but some of the jokes were right at that line if not over it.
Nothing good ever goes down once you bring someone’s mother into a roast. Jokes were also directed at the teen heartthrob’s former on and off girlfriend, Selena Gomez, which was to be expected. However, some digs in particular were extremely harsh. I’m sure if you watched the show you know exactly the ones I’m talking about. Furthermore, many jives were just socially insensitive, but I guess we should’ve seen those coming too.
I’ll admit, I laughed A LOT that night. The two-hour program was comical to say the least, but I really have to give props to Bieber. It was clear that some jokes hit him harder than others, but he took them like a champ, nonetheless.
Overall, I was the most impressed by his heartfelt apology at the end of the show for his regrettable behavior in recent years. It seems like the kid is finally growing up.
