Following the shocking and tragic plane crash in Ukraine yesterday, Jason Biggs' Malaysia Airlines Tweet became a national story in and of itself.

The actor jokingly asked if anyone wants to buy his Malaysia Airlines frequent flier miles, then got all sorts of fired up when people look offense.

Not only did the 36-year-old make it clear he wasn't sorry for joking about the Ukraine plane crash, he slammed Twitter users who took him to task for it.

He's doing a complete 180 now though, taking the joke down and apologizing.

"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," he writes.

"This is obviously a horrible tragedy, and everyone - including myself - is sad and angry."

Love him or loathe him, two things are undeniably true when it comes to Jason Biggs:

  1. He does not care if you love him or loathe him
  2. He is an equal opportunity offender on Twitter

The actor and surprisingly regular controversy magnet is in hot water again Thursday for his response to the Malaysia Airlines plane crash in Ukraine.

Biggs' response to this news, just months after the airline's plane disappeared in the Indian Ocean: "Anyone wanna buy my Malaysia Airlines frequent flier miles?"

Among MANY choice responses to this from Twitter:

  • "Go f--k a pie you piece of s--t!"
  • "You're such an attention seeking f--king whore!"
  • "You'd laugh if your kids died in a plane crash?"

And on and on and on ... but Biggs is NOT sorry. "Truly - you losers are literally trying to find s--t to get angry about," the actor fired back online.

Earlier this week, Rihanna caused quite the online kerfuffle when she Tweeted #FreePalestine.

The singer quickly deleted the message, with sources somehow saying she didn't mean to send it in the first place.

We're not sure how that's possible, but we're are sure Rihanna isn't the first celebrity to get into trouble for posting on Twitter.

Heck, she wasn't the first celebrity to Tweet about freeing Palestine this month alone, with Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard writing the same words online before also taking them down.

What other stars have regretting getting into politics over the Internet? We rundown several cases below and come to the same conclusion each time: stick to acting... or singing... or whatever it is you do, Kim Kardashian.

Leave the politics to the politicians.

Rihanna
Rihanna claims she never meant to Tweet #FreePalestine. The message was taken down immediately after going up.

Rihanna Tweeted “#FreePalestine” on Tuesday before deleting it.

No explanation was given, but screen captures were obtained.

Rihanna Free

The pop diva's message came as a proposed cease-fire between Israel and Hamas was abandoned amid attacks from militants on the Gaza strip.

#FreePalestine? #FreeTheNipple? The issues of our time.

Rihanna has not commented on the decision to post the message, her decision pull the message, or her thoughts on the international conflict overall.

In related news, NBA star Dwight Howard  alsotweeted “#FreePalestine” on Saturday only to pull the Tweet, later apologizing and calling it a “mistake.”

Again, no explanation from the singer so far, but this makes Rihanna Twerking highlights seem delightfully uncontroversial, don't you think?

Former political figure Sarah Palin is calling for President Barack Obama to be impeached in an op-ed quickly seized upon by every wannabe comedian on Twitter.

Palin's scathing indictment on Breitbart, in which she likens Obama to an abusive husband and America to his battered wife, set the Internet ablaze.

Reactions on both sides then threw gasoline on it.

  • You Betcha
  • President Obama in Rome

In her view, it's Obama’s diabolical plan to have Mexicans take jobs from Americans, so as to strengthen his hold on power, and he should be ousted as a result.

While Sarah has plenty of fans who would love to see Obama out of office, an overwhelming majority of Tweets about her comments have been ... well ...

Given her choice of words, questionable grasp of facts and the fact that it's Sarah Palin, her condemnation of the "imperial" Obama sparked widespread ridicule:

Some choice reactions after the jump:

Someone over at the Central Intelligence Agency is having way too much fun with the official CIA Twitter account, which turned one month old Monday.

The government agency posted responses to "five burning questions" that have been lobbed its way since it joined Twitter and started being bombarded.

Namely ... where is Tupac Shakur?!

Pac

The fate of the rapper, who was gunned down in September 1996 (or not, according to Suge Knight), has long been a lightning rod for conspiracy theorists.

It's been the subject of a fascinatingly unsolved FBI investigation, several documentaries, endless hip hop fan speculation and even jokes by President Obama.

Sadly, the CIA's got nothing.

"No, we don't know where Tupac is. #twitterversary," the agency tweeted to cap off its five-question session, which also included some other gems:

#AskThicke? More like #FailHard.

In anticipation of Robin Thicke dropping his new album today, VH1 asked fans last night to submit questions for an interview with the singer.

Via Twitter, producers wrote to followers: "Have a burning question for @robinthicke? Submit your ?s for tomorrow's Twitter Q+A using #AskThicke!"

Simple enough, right? Yes. But also rather humiliating for the artist.

More than inquiring about various tracks or tour dates, many took this opportunity to pummel Thicke with negative questions, insulting him for trying to win Paula Patton on stage and for grinding all up on Miley Cyrus at the 2013 VMAs.

Just how badly did critics give it to Thicke? Let's just say the following Tweets (all 100% real) didn't exactly blur any lines regarding their contempt for the crooner:

#AskThicke...
Did you really write a rape anthem as a love song for your wife and are you still wondering why she left you?

For a company that flies all around the world, Delta may wanna work on its knowledge of geography.

The airline sent a congratulatory Tweet to the United States World Cup team yesterday after that squad's exciting 2-1 opening round victory over Ghana.

The message included a photo of the Statue of Liberty to represent America and a picture of a giraffe to represent Ghana.

The only problem? Not a single giraffe resides in Ghana.

Delta Tweet

In fact, Twitter user @dcGisenyi determined that the image used in the Delta Tweet was actually a stock portrait of a giraffe at the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya... which is located 3,000 miles away.
