NBA superstar Blake Griffin was one of the celebrities who had the honor taking the stage for the Comedy Central Roast of Alec Baldwin — which airs on September 15. As is typical in roasts, the celebrity at the mic throws insults at everyone else on stage before roasting the guest of honor.
One of the people who took the hardest shots from Griffin was Caitlyn Jenner.
Griffin poked fun at Jenner’s gender reassignment surgery while also cracking a joke about Jenner’s parenting skills. Griffin previously dated Kendall Jenner in 2017 before the couple went their separate ways.
“On behalf of the entire NBA and half of the rappers on the Billboard charts, I want to thank you for giving your daughters their daddy issues,” Griffin joked. He continued, “Caitlyn completed her gender reassignment in 2017 … finally confirming that no one in that family wants a white d*ck.”
Griffin is no stranger to the roast stage. He previously appeared on the Comedy Central star Roast Battle where he went head-to-head with one of the most well-known comic roasters in Jeff Ross. Surprisingly, Griffin held his own during his appearance on the show and it looks like he’s only getting better with time.
Other roasters who took the stage include Robert De Niro, Griffin, Jenner, Chris Redd, Jeff Ross, Nikki Glaser, Caroline Rhea, Ireland Baldwin, and Adam Carolla.
Baldwin made the decision to face the best roasters the Tony Bennett’s Exploring the Arts Foundation, which funds his Frank Sinatra School of the Arts High School, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“The people at Comedy Central very kindly agreed to match me $500,000 for Tony Bennett’s Exploring the Arts foundation, which funds his Frank Sinatra School of the Arts High School,” Baldwin told the website. “When this opportunity came to come up with a million bucks for them with Comedy Central, that was really the real impetus behind this. I think it’s a question if I am even going to be alive when it’s over.”
The Comedy Central Roast of Alec Baldwin will air on September 15. The episode will make its premiere at 10:00 p.m. ET.
