Jason Biggs is getting backlash after making a Twitter joke about Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 shortly after the plane crashed on Thursday.

In light of the disaster — and the same airline’s disappeared Flight MH370 earlier this year — the “Orange Is The New Black” actor tweeted, “Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?

His followers did not find the crack amusing.

A number of people responded to Biggs with variations on “too soon” and “you’re a d*ck” and “not funny.”

Biggs struck back angrily (explicit language below), before announcing hours later that he was deleting the tweets.

What do you think?

Is it OK to joke about tragedies like today’s?

Or should some jokes be left unsaid and untweeted?
