Comic and actor Dane Cook is being criticized for a decision he made regarding his set during the Boston Strong concert at TD Garden. Cook did not allow his set to be streamed over any of the audio or video feeds from the concert which featured many of Boston's biggest music acts and benefited victims of the Boston Marathon bombings through The One Fund.
Cook explained his decision in a tweet:
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!— Dane Cook (@DaneCook) May 31, 2013
That tweet resulted in the kind of firestorm of negative reaction that only Twitter can deliver, and can be reviewed with a simple Twitter search of @DaneCook... but be prepared for a lot of profanity.
The video stream of the show fell victim to major technical problems, with a large number of online viewers unable to access the feed, or hampered by interruptions and buffering delays.
Several outlets streamed audio of the concert with better results.
