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:

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.
