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!

The Dane Cook joke was meant for a small audience of people. Yes it does get trivial and offensive when it's blasted accross the airwaves to the whole country. Maybe it's ok just for that small group of people who gathered in that room to get some relief?

Everyone is just too damn sensitive these can't change what happened, might as well ease the tension and laugh about it..

So this show runs much smoother when Harvey is not there. He just causes drama and makes everyone want to throw themselves out of a window.

I can't believe some of the morons trying to defend Cook. Do you know how retarded you sound? It's better to laugh about it to ease the tension? You know what you laugh at to ease the tension? Cat fights, arguments with your loved ones, mistakes. Not murder. Tell me, what do you guys think is funnier... the pregnant mother shot in the stomach fighting for her unborn child to live while mourning the death of her 6 year old... or all the men who died protecting their girlfriends with their very lives? Which is funnier to you? like I said, it's so easy to say "Freedom of speech", "Its just a joke", when it's not your family member's suffering that was reduced to a punchline.

I would be more interested in talking about how half (or more than that) of these people got their jobs. There seems like way too many ditzes on staff, especially the females they cut to. It's very rare to see a well-spoken, together type of person. I like the ones who seem like authentic personalities-Gary, Evan. I can't think of anyone else.

Considering the repeated use of homophobic slurs by members of the palin family - Willow and recently bristols son Tripp - will Bristol demand to partner with a straight male dancer? That Van Amstel guy is pretty vocal about homophobes and his dislike of them.

I think the comment made by Gladis knight was out of line and she should stay out of it. We should all just stay out of it and let them fight it out. Last one standing can live out the rest of their days missing those they killed to get to the top
