Comedy central WTF??? Edit with joke

Just caught a glimpse of a "comedian" at comedy central poking fun at the Newtown shooting! Comparing the shooter to the one that massacred all those young people in Norway, and I am honestly sick to my stomach! Even though his words were very offensive to me, what was worse were the people in the audience laughing! I just wonder why anyone actually laughed! So to make this a debate, do you think poking fun at a tragedy like the Newtown shooting is acceptable at this time? Do you feel like it will ever be acceptable? Would you have walked out if you would have been at this guys performance?

I tried to google what he said exactly but it was about how Adam Lanza wanted to kill as many as Andres Breivik but only managed to kill 26 children "77 VS 26 what a massacre" was the last line I listened to before I turned off the TV. This guy is smirking while saying this joke.

What did he say?  But I do know what you mean, those audiences laugh at everything.  A lot of the stuff isn't even funny, no effort was put into them at all. Gone are the really good comedians.  At least we still have Louis CK and Steven Colbert....oh and Lewis Black, love those guys.  I can't deal with any jokes about Sandy Hook or child abuse.  Guess I'm not "open-minded" enough.

I would have to know what was said before I could form any real opinion.

Was is Anthony Jeselnik? If so, that is his whole bit. He tells jokes and goes places no one else will.

No. I don't think it's acceptable.... He has the freedom to say whatever he will, but I think it was a bad choice of the network to air it.

I was at a comedy show one night, and the guy started talking about having kids and how he just doesn't want to end up with one of those little freaks in helmets on the short bus.... (Much like my amazing son). I walked out.
