Actor Jason Biggs found himself in the social media hot seat after joking on Twitter about Thursday’s deadly Malaysia Airlines crash which killed 295 passengers when it was shot down in Ukraine.

“Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?” tweeted the “American Pie” and “Orange Is the New Black” star, who added, “In all seriousness, tho- HOW DO YOU MISTAKENLY SHOOT DOWN A COMMERCIAL PLANE?! Ugh.”

The post went on to say, “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.”

Biggs added, “Truly- you losers are literally trying to find s–t to get angry about. Channel your issues elsewhere.”

“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?”

“It’s saddest for the victims and their families, obviously. But Malaysia Airlines is apparently a GREAT airline. Gonna be tough to recover.”

Later, after much online backlash, Biggs deleted his previous tweets and issued an apology. “People were offended, and that was not my intent. Sorry to those of you that were.

He continued, “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.”

“ P.S. No one is making me send these tweets- I simply understand that my comments might have come off as insensitive and ill-timed. For that, I apologize.”
