Jason Biggs sparks backlash over Malaysia Airlines joke

Jason+Biggs Known for his controversial tweets, Jason Biggs has provoked an outrage once again for making a joke about Malaysian Airlines tragedy.

Flight MH17 crashed in the Ukraine. The plane was carrying 295 passengers and reports suggest it was shot down by a missile. Shortly after the disaster, Biggs took to Twitter and wrote: “Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?”.

Then he added: ”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.”

The tweet sparked a backlash from some of his followers, with one writing: ”Too soon, man. Too soon.”

biggsAnother follower tweeted: ”Way too soon for a joke like this; families don’t even know.”

Biggs quickly responded, insisting he didn’t mean to offend anyone. He wrote: ”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.

”The idea that I wouldn’t have any empathy 4 the victims or their families because I make a joke is absolutely ridiculous. U know that, right? Truly- you losers are literally trying to find shit to get angry about. Channel your issues elsewhere.”
