Dane Cook's "Batman"

Shooter Joke ... Too Soon?

TMZ Live


Dane Cook cracks a "Batman" movie massacre joke at a comedy club -- and pisses off the vast majority of the country. Although people in the club did laugh ... is this too soon?  Fellow comedian Katt Williams calls in to defend Dane.

Plus, Katherine Jackson's agreed to share guardianship of Michael's children with TJ Jackson -- so finally ... the whole family's happy, right? Nope. We'll tell you why the family feud is a long way from being over.

And Kobe Bryant was spotted in a Barcelona nightclub chatting up two chicks! Harmless convo ... or almost-single guy looking to mingle?

(0:00) Katherine Jackson agrees to be co-guardians with TJ Jackson -- you'd think that would put out the family fire ... but Randy Jackson is still raging.
(8:30) Finally ... La Toya emerges! .
(11:20) Gladys Knight makes the most ridiculous comment on "The Talk" -- saying if 14-year-old Paris Jackson would've blasted her like she did Janet Jackson ... she'd have knocked Paris' teeth out.
(18:00) Dane Cook make a joke about the "Batman" massacre on stage last night -- fellow comedian Kat Williams calls in to defend him.
(26:20) Simon Cowell drops $500k to put over a hundred "X Factor" contestants in a swanky Miami hotel -- which sounds like a lot of money ... until you realize how rich he is.
(29:00) Kobe Bryant was spotted talking to two chicks at a club in Barcelona -- time to speculate!
(32:00) The US Olympic uniforms ... are hideous ... to everyone but Anna.
(35:00) A legally blind Olympian set a world record today -- in archery! Gary smells a rat.
(37:00) Recently ousted "Big Brother" contestant Willie Hantz has a perfectly ridiculous excuse for his DUI arrest.
(40:00) Conrad Murray wants to talk to Katherine Jackson -- and he's the only one who thinks it's a good idea.
(43:00) We take your calls!

Wasn't Mamma Jackson given 40% of Michael Jackson's estate? Won't that money go to here other kids when she passes away?

So Sad     

I think it is sad they the whole Jackson drama is being played out for the world to see... I think that his brothers and sisters ARE after his money and this is all a plot to get their hands on it. Yes Michael was a bit strang, but he kept his kids away from his family for a reason!!!

of course TMZ is milking the Jackson story to death . . . but there is good news . . . . there are no Kardashian press releases / blurbs posted during all this (at least so far).

Harvey: IT appears that the consensus of the public dislike the Jackson family, do not think the Grandmother should have Guardianship. Why not put one of your surveys up on the home page - bet it will be 99% not in favor of the family or the Guardianship of the Grandmother.

I think Gladys Knight is wrong in suggesting it is ever OK to knock someone's teeth out. I am so glad I was not raised in "the South".

His ego finally exploded.

C'mon! Janet and Randy ambushed those kids, and Janet was being aggressive. This on top of their grandma being incommunicado for a week at that point. Yes, Paris acted out of anger, and possibly fear - who can really blame her? It should have never gotten to that point.

Those saying you don't knock out the teeth of a child have obviously never met Justin Bieber.

People think being a comedian gives you free reign to act like a subhuman jacka$$ at the expense of others suffering. There are people who are still fighting to survive. It is so easy to evoke "freedom of speech" when the jokes aren't at the expense of your suffering. What if it was your child who was molested? What if it was your husband who gave his life to protect you? What if it was your best friend killed by a drunk driver? Would it still be funny? There is humor, and there is human decency. being a comedian doesn't give you license to re-victimize people. You should be a human being ahead of your art. That being said... Dane Cook was never funny, he was never talented, and this just proves that point.
