'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."

Still waiting for an apology for not explaining the numbers ... the DHARMA initiative ... the polar bear .... the smoke monster ... Walt ... the frozen wheel ... the lighthouse ...

What's wrong with this country? People joke about 911, Manson, killing, drugs, it's humor. People need to get a sense of humor.

America Sucks!

I agree with #24. I watched LOST faithfully and wanted to punch a mf in the throat after watching that b.s. finale. All of you who are going off on ppl for stating their disappointment need to calm down. Yeah they may have explained all the stuff like the numbers and the lighthouse but it still didn't do anything to explain the show! NONE of that sh*t had ANYTHING to do with the ending. It was a waste of 6 years. WTF did a polar bear and Alice in Wonderland references have to do with Jack crossing over??? Nothing. And that's what ppl are pissed about. I truly believe the writers had good intentions at the begininning but then got in over their heads. I don't think they knew what the hell to do to tie everything together which is why the story was so all over the place. It sucked balls.

That's what's wrong w/ America these days; no one knows how to take a joke anymore. Our imagination and sense of humor have been hijacked. Laugh and grow up people!
btw, Lost rules!

A lot of these things WERE explained. Just get your facts straight, TMZ. Instead of trying to be witty.

hotbitch YOU DID NOT GET IT. It's that simple. "A Faithful viewer" would not think it sucked ...IF they understood it!!!

The only mistake the LOST writers/creators made was thinking mass America would comprehend such a stellar show.

I THINK LOST was Genius. If you THINK it sucked, fine. If you THINK it sucked BECAUSE as you said they did not explain the show. YOU'RE WRONG.

Do some reading.... start with the basics of Hinduism and/or Samsara. Heck, pick up a Bible. Maybe you'll get what the WHOLE show was about.

Oh and a "faithful viewer" would know EXACTLY what the Polar bears had to do with the>>> island... and/or Jack, just saying.

That's how low a person can go to have his name on newspapers. Maybe he should just shut up on twitter.
