Jason Biggs Makes Plane Crash Jokes On Twitter, Gets Yelled At

Actor Jason Biggs has been tweeting about the crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, but his humorous approach has drawn cries of “too soon” by fellow users of the social site.

Across Twitter, tweets about MH17 are generally sober and express condolences or sadness about the loss of nearly three hundred lives.

In a series of tweets, Biggs made a few jokes about the tragedy, and then seemed to become irate when people criticized the comments.

Initially, he said:

Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?

After that tweet, Biggs added:

When the initial backlash rolled in, he tweeted:

It’s saddest for the victims and their families, obviously. But Malaysia Airlines is apparently a GREAT airline. Gonna be tough to recover.

At this point it seemed the negative response was getting to the star, as he began to angrily address naysayers, tweeting:

Hey all you “too soon” assholes- it’s a fucking joke. You don’t have to think it’s funny, or even be on my twitter page at all.

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) July 17, 2014

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?

Then he says:

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

@Bobby_Blight: @JasonBiggs I’ll be sure to laugh when u suffer a family tragedy.” Please do! I hope I can laugh during my family tragedy 2!

After retweeting a supportive tweet, Biggs tweeted to say that anyone who found his comments in poor taste were free to unfollow him:

That last guy is the kind of person I want following me. All you other pussies please go back to being pussies. Thanks!

TMZ reported on the Twitter controversy, and the actor tweeted at the site about their decision to juxtapose an image of him with the plane’s wreckage:

Hey @tmz – well done on posting my face next to the wreckage of the plane- you might almost think I actually shot it down!

— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) July 17, 2014

While Jason Biggs’ tweet garnered a significant amount of Twitter backlash, it was also favorited nearly two thousand times by fellow users.
