Jason Biggs apologizes for Malaysian Airlines joke
By Tribute News on July 18, 2014 | 1 Comment
Former American Pie franchise actor Jason Biggs, 36, sparked outrage when he wrote on Twitter, ''Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?'' shortly after news broke that a commercial plane carrying 295 passengers was shot down by a missile over the Ukraine on Thursday. He initially defended himself, saying he was merely a believer of the idea that laughter is the best medicine, after being inundated with abuse from his followers. But soon afterwards he deleted the original post and tweeted: ''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.''
