Jason Biggs Mocks Dead 'Bachelorette' Contestant by the Forward

Jason Biggs Mocks Dead 'Bachelorette' Contestant

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.

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.
