Actor Nyle DiMarco slammed comedian Dane Cook on Wednesday after the funny man made an insensitive deaf joke, RadarOnline.com can report.

Cook, 46, wrote a nasty tweet on November 14 poking fun at deaf people. The comedian, who is currently dating 19-year-old singer Kelsi Taylor, then attempted to save face by deleting it.

“When a deaf person wakes up late for work do they loudly sign ‘F*** MEEEEE’ to themselves as they hastily get ready?’ the comedian tweeted.

DiMarco, a deaf activist, was quick to screenshot the tweet. The 29-year-old actor then responded with a targeted response of his own using Ariana Grande’s revengeful lyrics.

“Thank u, next,” DiMarco responded.

The Dancing With The Stars alum then mimicked Cook’s rude tweet, and intentionally spelled some of Cook’s words wrong.

“I forgot the L in loudly but that’s because Dane took the L,” DiMarco wrote.

Then, the offended actor tweeted for a third time and shared screenshots proving Cook deleted the tweet.

“Poor guy,” DiMarco added.

Fans followed suit by ripping into the funny man, emphasizing that they don't exactly find him funny.

“When a deaf person goes to a Dane Cook show, do they feel the same pain as the rest of us do?” one frustrated fan tweeted.

Another Twitter user referred to Cook as the “f**king worst.”

Some of DiMarco’s followers claimed to never have liked Cook in the first place.

“He’ll do anything for cheap laughs,” said another user.

In 2016, DiMarco took home the mirror ball trophy for Season 22 of Dancing With The Stars.

In September, Cook was busy directing his teenage girlfriend’s topless music video, Radar reported.
