'Lost' Creator -- Sorry For Mocking Spider-Man

12/22/2010 7:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Damon Lindelof -- the co-creator of "Lost" -- is finally issuing a formal apology for one of the biggest mistakes he ever made ... unfortunately, we're not talking about his show's finale.

It's all over a joke Lindelof cracked on his Twitter page yesterday in the wake of the Spider-Man on Broadway accident -- he wrote, "With great power, comes great respWAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGHSMASHCRASHKATHUMP!!!!!"

Kinda funny -- but kinda inappropriate considering the accident may have ended the stuntman's career.

But today, Damon owned up to the situation -- tweeting, "I had no idea that the stuntman was so seriously injured. Bad taste. Honest regrets. And hoping for a speedy recovery."

Yeah, like any joke about a performer falling 30-feet to the stage below could ever be funny. I suggest next time he bite his fingernails instead of posting such an innane comments.

I believe He had no idea the stuntman was as seriously hurt as He was/is.
The production initially downplayed the extent of the stunt man's injuries now it's coming out the poor guy's seriously hurt.
It's still a insensitive joke on Lindelof's part

Why does he have to be sorry? Stunt dude is responsible for checking his equipment. On top of that you're playing a super hero. Joke deserved

Just once in this new pussified, damage-controlling world of company/celebrity apologies, I'd like to see someone take a bold stance and say "It's a joke. Suck it up."

That play has been plagued with problems since the start and this was hardly the first time they had problems with the suspension cables. While I feel bad for the stuntman I also think he was well aware of the risks he was taking. So I don't see what the big deal is with the joke.

Just crude. And simply, not funny.

Funny is the so-called "success" of Lost... and then the HUGE letdown at the program's conclusion... Left everyone scratching their heads... wondering why they even watched "Lost". Now THAT'S funny!

The problem wasn't that so many things were unexplained (the numbers, the smoke monster, etc.).

The problem was that the explanations weren't interesting ones.

To all you LOST haters...SUCK IT! You obviously never paid attention to the show anyway so why do you care how it ended. And duh, its called LOST for a reason! Did you really think a show titled LOST would have every single detail revealed, no. I LOVE LOST
