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.

Six days after the Colorado shooting in Aurora that killed 12 people, Dane Cook took to the stage at The Laugh Factory in Los Angeles and cracked a joke about the massacre.

An incredibly unfunny joke, no less.

"So I heard that the guy came into the theater about 25 minutes into the movie," Cook said of James Holmes. "And I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie, but the movie is pretty much a piece of crap...

"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.’”

Ummm... cue laughter?

What do you think of Cook making this crack?
