Jason Biggs apologizes for 'insensitive' joke

Jul 18 2014, 12:16am CDT | by

Jason Biggs has apologized for making an ''insensitive and ill-timed'' joke about Malaysian Airlines, shortly after news broke that a commercial plane carrying 295 passengers, reportedly including 10 British citizens and 23 Americans, was shot down by a missile over the Ukraine on Thursday (17.07.14).

Jason Biggs has apologized for making an ''insensitive and ill-timed'' joke about Malaysian Airlines.
The 'Orange Is The New Black' actor sparked outrage when he wrote on Twitter, ''Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?'' shortly after news broke that a commercial plane carrying 295 passengers was shot down by a missile over the Ukraine on Thursday (17.07.14).
The 36-year-old star initially defended himself, saying he was merely a believer of the idea that laughter is the best medicine, after being inundated with abuse from his followers.
But soon afterwards he deleted the original post and tweeted: ''Hey all- ok, so- I am deleting my previous tweets. People were offended, and that was not my intent. Sorry to those of you that were.
''This is obviously a horrible tragedy, and everyone-including myself- is sad and angry about it. Sending positive thoughts to the victims and their families.''
The former 'American Pie' star added: ''P.S. No one is making me send these tweets- I simply understand that my comments might have come off as insensitive and ill-timed. For that, I apologize.''
This isn't the first time the actor has caused controversy online.
He was previously criticized for the posting the following tweet after 'The Bachelorette' contestant Eric Hill died in an accident earlier this year: ''Crazy rule change--instead of voting off the contestants, this season #TheBachelorette gets to kill them off.''

Tara Reid: Completely Butchered By Plastic Surgery ... But I Might Have More!

Aug 13 2014 5:46am CDT | Source: The Hollywood Gossip

If Tara Reid is known for one thing, besides getting wasted at 11:30 a.m. at Comic-Con, it's the plastic surgery she had that went horribly wrong. The actress admits that her previous cosmetic operations produced less than ideal results, but the actress won't rule out having more work done in the future. Those implants. Yikes. Just wrong. So very, very wrong. She'll admit as much, too. One surgery was “completely butchered” in her own word ...
