Jason Biggs mocks 'The Bachelorette' death on Twitter
While this is hardly the first time the "Orange Is the New Black" star has used his account to poke fun at the "Bachelor"/"Bachelorette" franchise, the fact that one of the men seen prominently in the season premiere on Monday (May 19) has since died makes the jokes a little off-putting.
What exactly does Biggs say?
Crazy rule change- instead of voting off the contestants, this season #TheBachelorette gets to kill them off.-- Jason Biggs (@JasonBiggs) May 20, 2014
He followed that with a pair of tweets on the same subject:
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
Eric Hill died in late April after a paragliding accident. He had already completed his part on "The Bachelorette," even though the competition was still ongoing at the time. Making jokes about it during the "Bachelorette" premiere? That may indeed be too soon.
