Dane Cook Apologizes For Dark Knight Massacre Joke

dane cook apologizes for dark knight massacre joke

Well at least he's got the sense (and balls) to apologize!

After joking about the Dark Knight massacre wayyyy too soon, Dane Cook has reflected on his words and realized the nastiness of his wit.

Tweeting his regret, the comedian says:

"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."

Thank you, Dane.

It sucks he can't take the damage back, but maybe he can donate something to the victims!

    Saying he is "devastated" is such a phony stretch. He didn't even bother carefully choosing his words. Gave out a generic "I'm devastated", like he lost a family member or something.

    I'm not "devastated" by it. It was fucked up, but what stranger can honestly say they are devastated? fake ass bitch.



  2. 2

    Why doesn't he apologize for not being funny…ever….never………….ever.



  3. 3

    What a fake and insincere apology. I'm disgusted by this. He knew darn well what he was doing when he made the joke and his intentions to get attention via the joke were clear.



  4. 4

    Say didnt that chicken place apologize more then once. Oh thats right you and your gay buddies are all hypocrites



  5. 5

    It's always the same thing when a celeb saying something controversial. If they were devastated they never would have said what they said. These are always fake, forced apologies. Anyone who believes these apologies is just gullible.

    He might got too muck Chicken Flick in his head ! Idiot !

    Dumbass. Another example of a classless idiot who thinks it's funny to make jokes about real tragedies. Those shootings were not part of a video game, those were real people who were killed and injured. There is absolutely nothing funny about it.



  8. 8

    People still find him funny? I thought he was funny when I watched one of his TV specials. The second time I watched his stuff it was the exact same. The jokes he [rips off from better comedians] … I mean 'write' have not changed in years!

    Surely, you're not stupid, Perez? Everyone comments about something controversial in order to be controversial. Dane Cook saw an opportunity to have his name on print and used it. Why do you even report it? It's people like you that gives media space to those not newsworthy. When someone breaks up, its news. When someone dies, its news. But when someone comment about someone or something that has nothing to do with them, they just want to be talked about. Everyone knows that.

    I forgot to mention that I thought the joke was funny. Funny haha, not funny queer.

    Not only for the subject matter, but the joke was just horrible. You call that comedy? how did Dane Cook even become famous.



  12. 12

    Wow, as I was quickly skimming through this site, I thought for a minute there that he was dead. What is this, Dane Cook weekend?

    very insensitive idiot, he was one of the best in my book like I totally loved this man (movies and all) but not anymore THANX FOR SHOWING US THE REAL U DANE, U SHOULDVE HAVE BEEN AT THE THEATER THAT DAY, MY BEST FRIEND LOST HER BROTHER. SHAME ON U.

    People have been making jokes about this shooting since the moment it happened, it's human nature to make light of a sad and scary situation. This has rocked allot of peoples world, their scene of safety.
    But just because he made a wildly inappropriate joke, you think he should give them money?!? WTF ! That is what is wrong with Americans "Ooops I did something wrong, Here let me give you, or some charity of your choice some money".



  15. 15

    Did you ever apologize for telling Britney to kill herself? Did you ever apologize for calling Sandler's kid ugly? A spineless fruit like would never have the balls.

    One of the worst comics ever. A politically correct liberals wet dream in a gay leopard thong. Although the dark knight murder humor is OK, if its FUNNY! This was a flat joke. Its comedy, get over it. This should not be headline news.



  17. 17

    Bad timing, I have been watching TV news a lot (compter crashed and I was offline for a week) and as far as I know only 3-4 funerals have been held but I may be wrong and will be gladly corrected from someone who has better facts than I do. Thanks.

    he knew he was not supposed to go there, he knew it would create controversy, before this I never heard of him, you know what they say: bad publicity is better than none, watch his career gain exponential exposure



  21. 21

    YES U DID i could think of thousands of jokes about it but its just not cool to say any GOT IT…



  22. 22

    Perez, it doesn't take sense or balls to apologize for something that has the potential to kill your career. I'm sure he knew ahead of time that it wouldn't go over well and thought that he could just use it to get some much needed media attention and then just apologize for it after. His apology is about as genuine as his comedy. And good grief, donating money to the victims would make it even worse! That is EXTREMELY insensitive and a completely disgusting thing to do. Oh I made a terrible joke about the death of your family member, here's some money to get over it. You're a jerk for even suggesting that.



  23. 23

    Of course he's insincerely and utterly douchey. I guess it's worth asking: what other comedian did he steal this joke from?

    Wow, senseless. I originally thought he was talking about Good Luck Chuck

    I'm glad his brother stole all his money. Dane Cook sucks.



  27. 27

    Wow, not only does this guy have no comedic talent, but his apologies suck as well. Seriously, what have people ever seen in him?

    first off, comedians are SUPPOSE to shed humor or tragidy.. wrong timing? DEFINITELY! I love dane and he is one of the best STAND UP comedians ever. He made a bad call on his material. I'm sure ALL OF US have made a mistake and apologized for it. THANK YOU DANE FOR GROWING SOME BALLS AND APOLOGIZING.
