Malaysia Airlines


Jason Biggs is in hot water after making several jokes about the Malaysia Airlines plane crash today.

Just hours after news broke that 295 passengers were killed after the aircraft was shot down in Ukraine, the 36-year-old comedian took to his Twitter page to share some ill-timed and insensitive thoughts on the tragedy.

"Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?" Biggs tweeted, followed by, "In all seriousness, tho- HOW DO YOU MISTAKENLY SHOOT DOWN A COMMERCIAL PLANE?! Ugh."

"It's saddest for the victims and their families, obviously. But Malaysia Airlines is apparently a GREAT airline. Gonna be tough to recover," he added. "Hey all you 'too soon' assh---s- it's a f--king 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?" he continued. "Truly- you losers are literally trying to find shit to get angry about. Channel your issues elsewhere."

Needless to say, many Twitter users were not happy with Biggs' jokes.

While Biggs made light of the horrific crash, other celebs shared their condolences on social media. "My thoughts and prayers are with the passengers of Malaysian Airlines flight #MH17 and their families. May everyone rest in peace. Please #PrayForMH17," Khloé Kardashian wrote.

Kourtney Kardashian tweeted, "Praying for the families and friends of the 295 people who passed in the Malaysia Airlines plane crash. May god grant them peace to grieve."

"Such horrible news," Nicki Minaj posted. "My heart goes out to the victims and their surviving families. We take so much for granted. #MH17 #MalaysiaAirlines RIP."

LeAnn Rimes shared, "Such a tragedy, Malaysian Airlines. Many prayers for everyone effected."
