Jason Biggs pretty much like his American Pie character Jim Levenstein just can’t help it. Biggs, 36, who now plays Larry Bloom on Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” was in damage control mode on Thursday afternoon following few controversial tweets he made earlier in the day.

After 295 people died in a plane crash in Ukraine, actress and writer Jenny Mollen’s husband did not find anything else to do than joke about it on Twitter.

The My Best Friend’s Girl actor tweeted right after the news broke:

“Anyone wanna buy my Malaysia Airlines frequent flier miles?”

When the new father realized that his tweet did not sit well with most of his followers, he tried to elaborate by saying:

“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.”

Sensing that the updated joke made things worse, Biggs grew angry and defensive and started blasting some of his followers. He wrote:

“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 s–t to get angry about. Channel your issues elsewhere.”

It took Jason Biggs over four hours to realize that his Malaysia Airlines plane crash tweets were inappropriate, he decided to delete them and offer some kind of apology. He posted this about an hour ago:

1). 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.

2). This is obviously a horrible tragedy, and everyone-including myself- is sad and angry about it. Sending positive thoughts to the

3). victims and their families. P.S. No one is making me send these tweets- I simply understand that my comments might have come off

4). as insensitive and ill-timed. For that, I apologize.

Malaysia Airlines MH17 is not the first time Jason Biggs landed himself in trouble on Twitter. In March he also received criticism for joking about Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.

Ann Romney, Janna Ryan and the Pope have all been hit in the past by his controversial sense of humor.

Malaysian Airlines Mh17 was shut down by a missile strike.
