Jason Biggs Apologizes For Insensitive Malayasian Airlines Plane Crash Tweet
Jason Biggs is continuing to apologize for a “stupid” tweet he wrote about the Malaysian Airlines plane crash after finding himself on the receiving end of some major backlash.
“Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?” he tweeted shortly after the tragic news broke.
The American Pie actor later deleted the tweet and posted an apology message on the social network, but he decided to reiterate his remorse while co-hosting The View Monday morning.
“I certainly meant no harm; there was no malice, but I was stupid,” he explained. “It was poorly timed. I’ve always tried to find the humor in situations … it’s a knee-jerk reaction for me, it’s how I cope.”
So why the change of heart? Biggs decided to issue an apology when he realized the harm he had caused those in pain.
“I just knew when I put it out and the reaction from people. I also wasn’t aware of the extent and magnitude of what had happened. I didn’t think. … I have nothing but sympathy for the victims and their families. I’ve learned my lesson, and I’d like to move on.”
Do you believe his apology? Take a look and decide for yourself:
