Jason Biggs is known to make controversial comments about different topics on his Twitter page. He has once again took to his Twitter page to let his opinion be known. On Thursday, many followers think that he went way over the top when he made a tweet concerning the Malaysian Airlines place crash that killed almost 300 people.

His tweets started showing up shortly after the tragedy was announced on news channels worldwide. EONLINE shared that Biggs first tweet said "anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?", asking, "In all seriousness, tho- HOW DO YOU MISTAKENLY SHOOT DOWN A COMMERCIAL PLANE?! Ugh." Whether Biggs meant it to be a humorous post or not, many people did not agree with his thoughts nor his timing. Biggs has since taken down the comments. He said that he took it down voluntarily and was not made to by anyone.

The “Orange is the New Black” actor then attempted to smooth things over with a follow-up post on his Twitter page. He explained that he had deleted his previous post and that he did not mean to offend anyone. He offered positive thoughts to victims and their families. The last part of the four-part post apologized for his ill-thoughts and bad timing.

Many of his fans have surfaced and offered support toward Biggs. They have made their feelings known that America has become too sensitive and everyone needs a joke once in awhile no matter what the situation is. Many feel that his apology is not enough and that the comments should have never been made. Biggs lost many followers, but gained even more.

This isn’t the first time Biggs has received backlash for writing controversial tweets. Earlier this year, Biggs came under fire when he tweeted about ‘Bachelorette’ contestant Eric Hill. Hill died during a paragliding accident. Biggs made a tweet that the show was just “killing off” contestants instead of voting them off. “The fact that my tweets can be seen as controversial is fascinating to me,” Biggs told FOX411. “I’m constantly amazed.” Biggs has said in the past that he loves his twitter haters. It seems that he loves to get people fired up over issues and loves attention.
