A comedian has apologized for joking about a recent plane crash that is believed to have killed dozens.  The Daily Mail is reporting that Australia-based Adam Rozenbachs tweeted Tuesday morning, “Plane carrying Brazilian soccer team crashes in Columbia. Survivors were heard crying ‘Penalty! Penalty!’”  He has since deleted the message and issued another one, stating, “Apologies for last tweet re: soccer players. Saw a headline and didn't realise the gravity of the situation. Lesson learned.”  Despite the apology, Rozenbachs is facing backlash online, with one user writing back, “But you said 'survivors,' so you thought it would be funny despite knowing there were casualties? Hope you lose work from this.”  Meanwhile, another stated, “75 ppl have died, including an entire football team. You're a disgrace!”  The New York Times reports that just 6 out of 81 people aboard the plane have survived the Monday night crash.
