American Pie actor Jason Biggs loves to hate the Bachelor franchise. He has never had any qualms about letting the world know his feelings about the show. He also continues to watch every episode to make sure he has plenty in his arsenal to irritate those who are fans and he loves to follow the exploits of the men and women vying for that last rose. However, last night, Biggs launched a series of tweets after the most recent installment of The Bachelorette aired, and fans' irritation ignited into fury.
In addition to his usually abrasive opinions of those on the show, Biggs threw in some jabs mocking Eric Hill, who was a contestant earlier in the season, but suddenly died about a month ago.
Biggs also threw in, "Guys- I'm fallin asleep. Why the f*** is #TheBachelorette coming on so late all of the sudden? May have to wait until next week :(," for good measure, confirming he is a regular watcher of the series.
Hill was eliminated by Andi Dorfman fairly early in this year's contest, but host, Chris Harrison, told The View last month that the contestant was very well liked on set. The crew "loved having him around," said Harrison. The 31-year-old was critically injured when his parachute collapsed while paragliding in Utah. He was rushed to the hospital where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Both Biggs and his wife, Jenny Mollen, have proven track records when it comes to shocking the public via social media. In February, Mollen gave the world a play by play of the birth of the couple's son, Sid Biggs, on Instagram, including labor, an epidural and C-section. Just a couple weeks later, Biggs Instagrammed details of his newborn son's circumcision, sparking debate about genital mutilation on children.
If offended fans are looking for an apology from Biggs anytime soon, they shouldn't hold their breath. The actor hasn't retracted his derogatory tweets, but he has been retweeting all of the haters who have sent 140 characters of their dissatisfaction to him.
