Jason Biggs apologized for the Malaysian Airlines Twitter joke

By Mihir Shah,

Jason Biggs, commonly known for his appearance in the American Pie franchise films and the Netflix exclusive show Orange is the New Black, apologized for posting a Twitter joke about the Malaysian Airlines flight which was detonated by a missile a week ago in Ukraine killing nearly 300 victims.

According to Sydney Morning Herald, Biggs upset his Twitter followers for tweeting an advised joke about the Malaysian Airlines Flight disaster. His tweet said, "Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?"

His tweets got a little more rational after that, however, when he asked "How do you mistakenly shoot down a commercial plane?! Ugh." Biggs then went on to state some sympathy for the victims and their loved ones in his next tweet: "It's saddest for the victims and their families, obviously. But Malaysia Airlines is apparently a GREAT airline. Gonna be tough to recover"

Those tweets were followed by two more after Biggs started receiving backlash for the earlier postings:

"Hey all you 'too soon' a**holes - it's a f***ing joke. You don't have to think it's funny, or even be on my twitter page at all.

"The idea that I wouldnt have any empathy 4 the victims or their families because I make a joke is absolutely ridiculous. U know that, right (sic)? Truly - you losers are literally trying to find s*** to get angry about. Channel your issues elsewhere"

The above tweets were deleted and Biggs realized the seriousness of the matter.

CNN notes that Biggs has a long history of posting controversial tweets on Twitter. Some of his tweets included a series of sexually explicit comments aimed toward Republican politicians and their wives during the 2012 election.

Nevertheless, Biggs felt guilty and decided to apologize for the tweets he posted. His new tweets are as follows:

Biggs also made the headlines early this week after he claimed to drink some of his wife's breast milk.
