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.''

Jason Biggs Pisses on Chelsea Handler

Oct 17 2014 1:38pm CDT | Source: WWTDD.com

I’ve never done shit by popular demand. I don’t care to be popular. I’m mildly dyslexic, which means I hate the world for making me an ogre. But when a bunch of you including one girl who is all that really matters asked to see Jason Biggs peeing on Chelsea Handler’s head, fuck, why not. I was going to read the amusing backstory that goes with this whizzing moment, but I knew it would only ruin for me what I can more blindly categorize as a dipshit pissi ...
