JEFF ROSS 'Batman' Massacre Joke CUT from 'Roast'

Comedy Central is censoring Jeff Ross ... refusing to air the jokes he made about the "Dark Knight Rises" massacre during this weekend's taping of the "Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne."

Ross -- who came to the event dressed like Joe Paterno, accompanied by two young topless boys -- has been under fire for cracking the following zinger, directed at Seth Green:

“Seth, congratulations. This is actually a great night for you ... you haven’t gotten this much attention since you shot all those people in Aurora. ... I’m kidding. You are not like James Holmes. At least he did something in a movie theater that people remember!”

After the taping, one of the producers announced that the joke would be cut from the August 12 broadcast. 

Ross later admitted he crossed the line -- but told NBC News, "That is what Roasts are about."

Yep - Ross is usually good for pissing in the face of decency.

I think he crossed a line. The joke was in poor taste, and I am glad it was cut.  I understand that he was trying to be funny, but sometimes, people need to think about what they are going to say before opening their mouths.

It was a roast! The goal is to cross lines and be offensive!
