The plane was carrying 295 passengers to Kuala Lampur when it crashed in Ukraine. After news of the accident broke, Biggs tweeted, "Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?" incurring an onslaught of criticism.
After initially defending his actions, Biggs has since changed his tune, tweeting:
1). 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.
