American Pie actor Jason Biggs is getting the heat for joking that he now wants to sell his Malaysia Airlines frequent flier miles and you’d think he would back down, but he’s not, not until now at least.
Biggs tweeted shortly after the crash of the 777 jetliner, “Anyone wanna buy my Malaysia Airlines frequent flier miles?”
His tweet drove people nuts and Biggs had people saying, among other things, “Go f**k a pie you piece of s**t. You’re such an attention seeking f**king whore,” and “You’d laugh if your kids died in a plane crash?”
Retaliating in anger, Biggs replied saying, “Truly – you losers are literally trying to find s**t to get angry about. Channel your issues elsewhere,” and, “Hey, all you ‘too soon’ assholes – it’s a f**king joke. You don’t have to think it’s funny, or even be on my twitter page at all.”
Biggs later then tweeted an apology for his tasteless remarks and jokes regarding the MAS #MH17 crash. The 36-year-old actor has since deleted his previous tweets.
