VIDEO: Dane Cook Jokes About Colorado Shooting Massacre During Standup Set

Dane Cook joked about Colorado shooting tragedy during a standup comedy set on Thursday night.
The comedian was performing at The Laugh Factory in Los Angeles when he began talking about last week’s The Dark Knight Rises massacre that left 12 dead and dozens wounded.
In footage taken from the show, Cook can be heard taking cracks at the quality of the movie before saying, “I know that if none of that had happened, I’m pretty sure that somebody in that theater, about 25 minutes in, realizing it was a piece of crap, probably was like, ‘Ugh, f**king shoot me.’”
The crowd’s reaction to Cook’s joke seems split between gasps, groans and laughter.
Given the horror of the situation in Aurora, Colorado — and how recent the shooting was — Cook’s joke is creating controversy.
Later on Friday, Cook apologized via 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.”
