I’m so torn with shit like this. Because if I say “how dare he?!” then I’m no better than the chicks who freak out about our rape jokes, right? It’s comedy and if you’re not trying to cross the line then you’re really not doing your job. Is it too soon? Yeah, to me it is. But I’m also not going to throw up my hands and say Dane Cook is the devil for making a joke some people might not like. I mean it’s not like he got booed off stage. It was a kind of mixed reaction but for the most part I think people laughed. So he did his job. But from now on I’d probably wait until everybody who was killed is buried before you start yucking it up about one of the worst mass shootings in American history.
PS – Dane Cook is the Nickelback of comedy. He’s nowhere near the top of my favorites list, but the dude gets such an ungodly amount of hate that I like him. Solidarity.
