Several months ago, “American Pie” star Jason Biggs landed himself in hot water with conservatives after sending out vile, sexist tweets about Ann Romney and Paul and Janna Ryan. Biggs never apologized for his filth, and Nickelodeon, his employer, refused to take any kind of action. One would hope that more than enough time has passed for Biggs to discover some semblance of a conscience, but that’s evidently not the case. In an interview with John Carucci of the Associated Press, Biggs expresses no remorse whatsoever for his vicious “off-color comments,” and, in fact, blames the uproar on conservatives being uptight:
NEW YORK—Jason Biggs is brushing off criticism he received during the recent election season for vulgar tweets that referenced the wives of both Republican Mitt Romney and his running mate in the presidential race, Paul Ryan.
“I made a political tweet, so I got a little bit of heat from the right,” he said.
His tweets may have been about political figures, but they were not political. They were disgusting and degrading. And the “heat from the right” was more than well-deserved.
With elections over, Biggs says he’s moving on.
How nice for him — and his fans:
