Jason Biggs is coming under fire for comments he tweeted out during the season premiere of “The Bachelorette” on Monday.
The self-described “Jewiest-look non-Jew” mocked the death of Eric Hill, one of Andi Dorfman’s prospective “ones,” who died April 23 in a paragliding accident.
Crazy rule change- instead of voting off the contestants, this season #TheBachelorette gets to kill them off. — Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) May 20, 2014
Here's what I can tell you without watching- 8 of the 20 guys are in the closet, all of them workout, and 2 can do simple division. — Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) May 20, 2014
And 19 of them are still alive. #TooSoon— Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) May 20, 2014
Biggs, who will be reprising his role of nebbishy Jewish fiance Larry Bloom in Season 2 of “Orange is the New Black,” is apparently an avid viewer of both “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.”
To answer his question — Yes, definitely too soon.
