Posted on 07/18/2014 2:14:42 PM PDT by nickcarraway
Hollywood Actor Jason Biggs on Friday apologised for tweeting a joke over the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17.
Soon after news of the tragedy became global headlines, Biggs, 36, tweeted @JasonBiggs "Anyone wanna buy Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?"
The star of teen comedy American Pie followed up the tweet with "In all seriousness, tho- HOW DO YOU MISTAKENLY SHOOT DOWN A COMMERCIAL PLANE?! Ugh."
The tweets received multiple comments and criticisms, to which Biggs retaliated and responded by saying "You don't have to think it's funny, or even be on my Twitter page at all" adding that the people were losers and that they should take their issues elsewhere.
Biggs then issued an apology by first tweeting that he will be 'deleting his previous tweets' as he believes it had offended people and that it was not his intention.
He followed it with "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."
He added that no one had forced him to send the recent tweets and that he 'simply understands that his tweets may have come off as insensitive and ill-timed.
Biggs then ended his string of tweets with 'for that I apologise."
Flight MH17 departed from Amsterdam was supposed to have arrived in Malaysia at 6.10am with 295 on board on Thursday.
It made a last contact at 10.15pm over Ukranian airspace where it was believed to have been shot down.
The internet PC mob strikes again.
Yeah its perfectly fine to joke about the murder of 300 people.
All he had to do in the original post was say “Too Soon ? “ at the end
He didn’t say anything that most people weren’t thinking.
This is Malaysian Airlines’ Lockerbie moment. Put a fork in them.
I’ve seen and heard worse from dimwitted celebrities.
Should I be ashamed?
I've never been on anybody's Twitter page, and don't intend to start. What could be more "GAY" than Tweeting on Twitter?
Now they are saying the bodies on the plane weren’t fresh, that they were already dead. Could it be another one of Barrys distractions?
Never heard of him.
Why does anybody care about anything he has to say, especially enough to be offended by it?
He is of no consequence. Being offended by him just makes him consequential.
i will continue to watch Jason Biggs on the Netflix program, Orange is the New Black...
Who gives a crap what Biggs thinks? These mobs are far more dangerous then some moronic comment by a C-list actor.
Although he is an ignorant a-hole, PC is killing this country. Lighten up, people.
Being offended has become a full time occupation for far too many people.
I was telling my friend if I had Malaysian Airlines stock is SELL IT.
Beat me to it...
Oops is = I’d
I saw photos of the bodies on the Documenting Reality website. If you never been there, it is probably one of the most gruesome websites on the internet. They hold nothing back, I always go there when stuff like this happens to see the real deal. To me the bodies look just like you would expect bodies to look in a plane crash. Pretty much mangled as bad as it gets. What WAS interesting though is there is no blood. I’m no expert on plane crashes but, it seemed a bit odd that these bodies really didn’t have any kind of blood on them. I don’t know if it was because they were immediately killed and their heart stopped thus no blood was pumped out, or maybe they were already dead?
It was 15 years ago, and not a particularly egregious example of the "Dawson Creek meme". Most of the cast was 20, only 2 years older than the characters they playing. (Tara Reid was 23, Alyson Hanigan was 25, John Cho was 27 - but both Hannigan and Cho are suspected of having portraits in the attic that are aging instead of them)
They weren’t dead when they boarded the plane I bet.
Yeah, these major news stories always seem to happen when the terrorist in command gets bad press. You have to ask yourself: Why would the rebels or Putin shoot down a commercial airliner? What is the advantage there? Even if they thought it was an enemy plane in their airspace, what is the advantage to shooting it down? What is the gain? Right now we got the most evil ass mofo on the planet in the Oval office. Nobody even comes close to the kind of scumbag this guy is. In 5 short years he’s helped radical Islam take over Egypt (which they rebelled against), Libya, and now Iraq....Even Iran of all countries is concerned. And people believe Putin is the bad guy? Iran because they supply weapons to Hamas? That is NOTHING compared to Obama! This piece of pig vomit just freed 5 top Taliban commanders! And Congress incredibly sits on its ASS! So when I see a plane crash like this, who is the most likely culprit? A guy like Putin who doesn’t give a damn about what kind of press he gets, or this Kenyan asshole who has been doing this kind of crap since day one? Who allows our own US Ambassador to be murdered so he gets good press for an election?
