Jason Biggs Tweets, Then Deletes, Joke About Malaysia Plane Crash

Pin It
Jason Biggs is supposed to be a funny comedian, but he's got rotten timing.

When news broke about Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 being shot down over the Ukraine yesterday, killing all 298 passengers on board, the American Pie actor took to Twitter to make a joke about the tragedy.

"Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?" he Tweeted, referring to yesterday's crash as well as the airline's flight 370 that disappeared with 239 passengers on board earlier this year.

After getting some major backlash from his Twitter followers, Jason then deleted his Tweet and began backpedaling.

"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," he began. "This is obviously a horrible tragedy, and everyone-including myself- is sad and angry about it. Sending positive thoughts to victims and their families."

For someone who's "sad" about the terrible crash, he sure has a funny way of showing it. "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," he concluded.

But we're not giving the actor a pass on this one, because it's not the first time he's done this. When flight 370 originally went missing in March, he joked about it in a Tweet referencing The Bachelor. It's about time he learns from his mistakes and gets a sensitivity chip already.

Our deepest condolences to the victims of this devastating incident and their families.
