Jason Biggs & Wife Controversial Tweets; Ann Romney & Janna Ryan (VIEW LIST OF DELETED TWEETS)
on Sep 04, 2012 07:25 PM EDT
Jason Biggs is under fire for tweeting obscene comments about Presidential candidate Mitt Romney's wife Ann and Paul Ryan's wife Janna during the Republican National Convention.
"I bet there's footage somewhere of Paul Ryan jerking off to a close-up photo of his widow's peak. #RNC," tweeted the "American Pie" star.
Later, he tweeted about Ryan: "I'd totes dip a pinky or two in Paul Ryan's wife's bleached a**hole ( she obvs bleaches her a**hole.) #RNC."
After receiving criticism on Twitter for the offensive remarks, the tweets were removed.
Biggs's wife Jenny Mollen has also used Twitter to make offensive comments. She recently tweeted a joke about her husband committing statutory rape on 8th grade children.
Nickelodeon has been flooded with letters and tweets demanding the network fire Biggs from the children's network. Biggs lends his voice to the character of Leonardo to the family channel's upcoming children's cartoon, the reboot of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." "TMNT" is set for release at the end of September.
John Nolte at Big Hollywood criticized the family network for directing their viewers "to [Biggs's] Twitter account filled with sexist talk of bleached a**holes, incest (complete with photos), "cock," photos of dildos, and Chick-fil-A trashing."
Nickelodeon has reportedly issued a response on Tuesday, Sept. 4. Nickelodeon's West Coast Vice President Ariana Urbont responded with the following statement:
"The offensive comments made by Jason Biggs last week on his personal twitter account do not reflect our company's views or values, and we condemn them. Nickelodeon does not support or condone the use of graphic or vulgar language on any of our platforms. It was our mistake to link from our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles twitter feed to Jason's personal twitter account, and we quickly corrected our error. We also insisted Jason use better judgment and discretion in public communications while affiliated with our brand."
In May, Biggs and his wife parodied the controversial Time Magazine's cover of a three-year-old boy suckling on his mother's breast. Biggs tweeted a picture of him with his mouth over his wife Jenny Mollen's breast with the caption: "Are You Wife Enough?"
The picture shows Biggs kneeling on a chair and re-enacting the same pose as the three-year-old boy. Mollen stands with her hands on her hips like Jamie Lynn Grumet.
The issue of TIME featured a story about "attachment parenting."
