Trash-mouthed misogynist Jason Biggs debuted in Nickelodeon’s new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” reboot Saturday as Leonardo, one of the sewer-dwelling “heroes in a half-shell.”
Sewer-dwelling is right. By Sunday night, he was back to littering his Twitter feed with sludge that’s decidedly not for the kiddie crowd.
After Biggs tweeted sexually degrading filth about Janna Ryan and Ann Romney during the Republican National Convention, Nickelodeon “insisted Jason use better judgment and discretion in public communications while affiliated with our brand.” His “pubic hair” tweet followed last month’s “ambien sex fest” and “ejaculant soaked tanktop” tweets.
Hey, Nick, is that the “better judgment and discretion” you were hoping for? Disgusted parents and other people standing up for decency don’t seem to think these tweets qualify.
Nickelodeon lost 28 percent of young viewers over the past year. And now the floundering kids’ network is enabling Biggs and alienating parents, all while pinning its hopes on the retooled “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”
Good luck with that.
