Dane Cook jokes about Colorado shootings, apologizes after.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES (HOLLYWOODTV) - Dane Cook has issued a public apology for making a joke about the "Dark Knight Rises" shootings in Colorado. Last night during a routine at Hollywood's Laugh Factory, Dane joked that "if none of that would have happened, prettys sure that somebody in the theater, about 25 minutes in, realizing that [The Dark Knight Rises] was a piece of crap, was probably like 'ugh f*cking shoot me.'"

Dane apologized via his Twitter account, posting, "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."
