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.
