Dane Cook Makes Horrible Joke About Aurora, Colorado Shootings
There is a time and a place to joke, but Dane Cook joking about the Aurora, Colorado shootings is going too far. Comedy has been used throughout the years to make people like you and me laugh about stupid issues, but there is a fine line between funny and crude. I've heard the arguments on both sides of the table about whether Dane Cook is actually funny. For the longest time I could have cared less until he unleashed the mother of all rude statements,
I heard that the guy came into the theater about 25 minutes into [The Dark Knight Rises]," Cook's joke began, "And I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie, but the movie's pretty much a piece of crap. Yeah, spoiler alert. I know that if none of that would have 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---ing shoot me.'"

Apparently he got wind of how many people where upset, so he did post an apology on twitter for making light of the situation.
I am devastated by the recent tragedy in Colorado & did not mean to make light of what happened." Via TMZ
He may have apologized, but can someone please tell me why this guy still has a a career?
