Wayne Brady Apologizes for Trig Palin Joke

Exclusive Details 082012_wayne_brady_launchWayne Brady says he takes “full responsibility” for using Trig Palin and his Down Syndrome as a punchline at the “Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne” … insisting “no malice or harm was meant.”

Brady has been taking some serious heat for the past week … over a joke in which he says Sarah Palin hates Jeff Ross because he reminds her of “what Trig is going to look like when he”s 40.”

Wayne issued a statement on Facebook in which he says he didn”t write the Jeff joke but explains, “At the end of the day I take full responsibility for saying it.”

He adds, “I could defend it as a performer, but I would rather apologize from the bottom of my heart as a father.”

“To the Palins, please know that no malice or harm was meant. To the other families who were touched negatively, I hope you”ll be able to accept this apology as well.”

Brady was at LAX this weekend … and told us, “It”s a roast, but there are people with sensitivities … and some people were bothered.”
