Ludacris wasn’t impressed with the Paul Walker jokes being thrown around Comedy Central’s Roast of Justin Bieber and almost walked off the set, he exclusively told Dish Nation.

The rapper stopped into Dish’s Atlanta studio this week to chat with hosts Headkrack, Gary With Da Tea, Porsha Williams and Rock T about the Roast heard ’round the world, his new album “Ludaverse” and his new movie, Furious 7.

During the March 14 taping of Bieber’s Roast, numerous jokes leaked about Ludacris’ Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker — who tragically died in a fiery 2013 car crash — and Comedy Central later said they would pull some of them for the March 30 broadcast.

“There were some Paul Walker jokes that were in the roast that I was definitely not feeling at all,” Ludacris, 37, said.

“And I kinda was vocal about it, and I almost didn’t make it through the Roast because I was ready to slap the hell outta somebody. But I was a good sport.”

One of the jokes in question, that was later pulled by Comedy Central, was made by regular toastmaster Jeffrey Ross who said:

“‘Move bitch, get out the way!’ is what Paul Walker should’ve told that tree,” he said, referencing Ludacris’ hit song “Move Bitch.”

“Too soon? Too fast? Too furious?”

“Jeff Ross was one of them,” Ludacris told Dish about the jokes being made. “It was more than one person, but I went up to all of them and said these jokes don’t need to make it in.”

Ludacris starred with Walker in three of the Fast & Furious movies.

“Let me just say this, aside from the Paul Walker jokes, I thought it was a great Roast. Nobody was safe, we were all laughing at the jokes on ourselves and joking on everybody else,” he said.

“However, you all can agree to disagree with me, I know what was said and I felt like it was inappropriate and I’m going to stand by that no matter what anybody says to me. That was my friend.

“I don’t give a damn if it was a Roast or not, that was my friend.”

Ludacris just released his ninth studio album, “Ludaversal,” on March 31 and told Dish it might be his best ever — and Furious 7 opened on April 7 to Universal’s highest grossing premiere weekend ever.
