Besides the Malaysians, the responses on Twitter were also filled by many international celebrities who were as shocked to receive the tragic news.
Mary J. Blige included.
But there were some distasteful tweets, including one from Jason Biggs of “American Pie”. The actor references the plane during his tweet about reality show “The Bachelor”.
Needless to say, the tweet received very mixed reviews.
The tweet has since been deleted.
