Jason Biggs always seems so mild-mannered, vanilla, and inoffensive on television and in the movies, and it’s hard not to think of the real-life person in the same way. But in reality, he’s kind of … well, more interesting (though not always in positive ways). He’s kind of crude, and not just because he lampooned the Time magazine breastfeeding cover by sucking on his wife’s breasts, and not just because his wife wrote openly about buying him a prostitute, you know, for play, which is … whatever. To each his own … different strokes, what people do in their bedroom … he actually does seem to have a really strong marriage to his wife, with whom he’s having a child, based on the essays that she’s written about their relationship.
Separately, Biggs also has an obsession with tweeting about The Bachelor. Why? I have no idea. But he does, which is fine and OK, whatever, but this week, Biggs — well, you know that thing you do where you up the stakes on your commentary to get more followers and … maybe you think you’re being funny, but you’re really kind of embarrassing yourself, and well, Biggs is kind of an asshole.
Just look, you’ll see what I mean.
Michael Ian Black was so taken back, that he “unfollowed” Biggs.
As Crushable notes, there’s a possibility Michael Ian Black’s participation was a rouse to promote The Bachelor parody, Burning Love, but I don’t think so. But I also don’t think that Michael Ian Black was being sincere (the two are likely friends, owing to the fact that Biggs starred in Wedding Daze, a movie that Ian Black wrote and directed in 2006). Whether Ian Black was legitimately offended or not, however, doesn’t really change the content of the previous tweets, which were pretty awful (and many other followers of Biggs’ did unfollow.
