Dane Cook Ridiculed for Not Letting His ‘Boston Strong’ Set Stream Live
Comedian Dane Cook joined up with other acts last night (May 30) for the Boston Strong concert to benefit victims of last month’s Boston bombings through One Fund Boston — but unlike his fellow do-gooders, he didn’t allow his set to stream live or be televised for those watching at home.
Which, as expected, got him some flak from the internet.
In response to everyone’s Scooby ears, he took to Twitter with this explanation:
Hey everyone sorry my set was not a part of the live stream or televised! I didn’t want any of the new material to hit the airwaves yet!

Insert everyone ever responding and being confused about why a man who once joked about the Aurora movie theatre shootings would be invited to a charitable event for another tragedy anyway.

People are complaining about *not* watching Dane Cook?

@DaneCook It’s your acting career that you shouldn’t let hit the airwaves.

Lay off of Dane Cook. Blocking out his "Boston Strong" performance was the best act of charity he could have delivered.

@CertifiedBA Right, he wouldn't want someone to steal his material. Because that would define ironic.

Dane Cook not subjecting his comedy to millions of people is the most charitable thing he could have done.
