Jason Biggs Offended A Lot Of People By Tweeting A Joke About Malaysia Airlines

Not the best timing, let’s put it that way.

Yesterday a Malaysia Airlines plane carrying 298 people was shot down over Ukraine.


Which led to this poorly timed joke by American Pie actor Jason Biggs on Twitter shortly after the news broke.

So Twitter, of course, immediately exploded with outrage.

But nevertheless Biggs was in turn enraged with the abuse he received for his joke and vented:

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?

“Truly- you losers are literally trying to find s*** to get angry about. Channel your issues elsewhere.
