Saget insists some of the gags about the sisters, who shared the role of his daughter Michelle on the sitcom, were a little offensive and he was upset the former child stars were poked fun at.
At one point funnyman Jeff Ross quipped, “Mary-Kate and Ashley were supposed to be here tonight, but they heard there was food,” alluding to Mary-Kate Olsen‘s much-publicized battle with an eating disorder.
In a press statement, an angry Saget says, “Anybody who talks about my TV kids–that upsets me. I am very protective. I love them very, very much.”
The roast will air on Aug. 17.
