Dane Cook Apologizes for Dark Knight Rises Joke, Being an Insensitive Moron

by at . Comments

Dane Cook has apologized for being an insensitive jerk bag.

On Thursday night, the unfunny stand-up comedian joked that people inside the Aurora, Colorado movie theater last week were probably wishing they'd be shot because The Dark Knight Rises is such a bad movie.

Shockingly, anyone with an ounce of sympathy and intelligence came down hard on Cook, prompting him to write the following on Twitter:

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.

And, with that, let's hope the controversy goes away. Along with Cook.

I forgive him, i see why he said sorry but it wasn't needed. People in oversensitive situations always find things to be butt hurt about. DC obviously didn't do it to intend on hurting anyone.. He's a comedian. Get over it people. Don't give him the what if it was your friend crap.

He made a terrible joke at a horrible incident. DC is a good actor and funny Guy (sometimes). Lets not write him off so quick and easy. My heart and prayers go out to all who were affected in Colorado.

The Dark Knight Rises was a great film, as much a victim as the people who were killed, Dan Cook's only good movie he's been in was Mr. Brooks, I hardly think he has room to joke about bad movies. That being said his timing is foul which is doubly reproachful as he is a comedian. You'd think he'd be better at this, then again what has he done lately? until now I thought he pretty much went the way of Carlos Mencia

Dane Cook is still one of the funniest mothers out there. Still was a little pre mature to start with the Colorado jokes. Maybe next month? Ha ha
