Dane Cook Apologizes for Colorado Massacre Joke

Comedian Dane Cook apologized via Twitter Friday for his insensitive joke on Thursday night at the Laugh Factory about the Colorado massacre:

I am devastated by the recent tragedy in Colorado & did not mean to make light of what happened. I made a bad judgment call with my material last night & regret making a joke at such a sensitive time. My heart goes out to all of the families & friends of the victims.

In case you missed it, this was his “joke”:

“So I heard that the guy came into the theater about 25 minutes into the movie … And I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie, but the movie is pretty much a piece of crap … yeah, spoiler alert.”

Cook continued … “I know that if none of that would have happened, pretty sure that somebody in that theater, about 25 minutes in, realizing it was a piece of crap, was probably like ‘ugh f*cking shoot me.’”

How about an apology for your entire career while you’re at it, Dane?
