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.
What's worse than a Dane Cook joke? Dane Cook.

Too bad it took an absolutely tasteless and awful joke for people to finally realize that Dane Cook isn't funny.
