Comedian Dane Cook has apologized for a “shoot me” joke he made Thursday night at the Laugh Factory in Los Angeles during a bit about “The Dark Knight Rises.”

The full statement reads:

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.

For a place called “The Laugh Factory,” the venue sure seems to be turning out some defective product lately.
