Justin Bieber Gets Roasted in Comedy Central Special

Comedian Kevin Hart hosted the televised event.

Published March 15, 2015

Justin Bieber, pop music's current bad boy, was made the butt of an entire special worth of jokes on Saturday night (March 14). During the Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber, the "Baby" singer's celebrity friends let him have it, with no remorse.


Hosted by Get Hard actor and comedian Kevin Hart, the special was off to a hilarious start from the get go: "Tonight, we are gonna do what parents and the legal system should have done a long time — give the boy an ass-whoopin' he deserves," Hart said.

According to People, following Kevin Hart's introduction, the laughs continued as a video montage including all of the 21-year-old pop star's embarrassing legal woes was shown. The jokes never stopped, with stabs being taken at the singer's pre-pubescent fanbase, his corny songs and his constantly — and somewhat forced — apologetic appearances on the Ellen Show.

Celebs who took the stage to roast the young singer included Snoop DoggLudacris, Shaquille O'Neal, John Legend, Dave Chappelle, Will Ferrell and Martha Stewart.

At the end of the roast, Bieber, rocking a cobalt blue suit and a black skinny tie, seemed to be a good sport. "Damn, you guys were brutal," he said. "This was supposed to be a birthday present. When people ask me what I got for my 21st birthday, I'll tell them I got my d*** kicked in. I should have known."

Things then took a serious turn when the "Boyfriend" crooner looked directly into the camera and apologized yet again for his past behavior. "I lost some of my best qualities," he said. "I'm looking forward to being someone to be proud of. Someone close to me once said how you rise from a fall is how you are truly defined as a man."

The Comedy Central Roast of Justin Bieber airs on March 30.
