Jason Biggs' tweets are often controversial, but his jokes about Thursday's tragic Malaysia Airlines crash were unacceptable--even by internet standards.
The Orange Is the New Black star has removed his controversial remarks on Twitter (we'll get to those in a minute) and apologized for the harm they might have caused.
He tweeted a four-part apology, condensed to read: "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. 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."
Although some tweeters were willing to forgive Biggs, others taunted him with his earlier remarks. Just hours before his apology, the 36-year-old American Pie alum had crassly joked, "Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?", asking, "In all seriousness, tho- HOW DO YOU MISTAKENLY SHOOT DOWN A COMMERCIAL PLANE?! Ugh."
Initially, Biggs stood by his now-deleted tweets, writing, "Hey all you "too soon" a--holes- it's a f--king joke. You don't have to think it's funny, or even be on my twitter page at all."
He clearly had a change of heart.
