London: Jason Biggs has been slammed for making `sick` jokes on Twitter about the Malaysia Airlines plane crash yesterday.

The ` American Pie` star posted, "Anyone wanna buy my Malaysian Airlines frequent flier miles?" on Twitter for which he has been slammed by fans and users, reportedly.

He initially tried defending his tweet and wrote, "In all seriousness, tho- HOW DO YOU MISTAKENLY SHOOT DOWN A COMMERCIAL PLANE?! Ugh", followed by another tweet, "It`s saddest for the victims and their families, obviously. But Malaysia Airlines is apparently a GREAT airline. Gonna be tough to recover".

However, he later abused the users who had criticised his tweets and told them, "Channel your issues elsewhere".

The Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 had lost contact in Ukrainian airspace around 50km from the border with Russia, and it has been claimed that the plane was "shot down".
