breaking news

Jason Biggs ApologizesJason Biggs is tucking his digital tail between his legs -- hours after blasting people who took offense to his Malaysia Airlines crash joke ... he's backing down and apologizing. 

Biggs tweeted his mea culpa moments ago ... saying he's deleted the crash joke from his page because he didn't mean to offend.

0717-jason-biggs-tweets-01Perhaps understanding how strange his sudden 180 sounds ... Biggs said, "No one is making me send these [apology] tweets- I simply understand that my comments might have come off as insensitive and ill-timed. For that, I apologize."

Jason added, "Sending positive thoughts to the victims and their families."

Jason Biggs
is getting trashed for joking that he now wants to sell his Malaysia Airlines frequent flier miles ... but he's not backing down.

Biggs tweeted shortly after the crash of the 777 jetliner, "Anyone wanna buy my Malaysia Airlines frequent flier miles?"

People went nuts on Biggs, saying, among other things, "Go f**k a pie you piece of s**t.  You're such an attention seeking f**king whore," and "You'd laugh if your kids died in a plane crash?"
 
Biggs recoiled in anger, saying, "Truly - you losers are literally trying to find s**t to get angry about. Channel your issues elsewhere," and, "Hey, all you 'too soon' assholes - it's a f**king joke.  You don't have to think it's funny, or even be on my twitter page at all."

Clearly Not of This Earth

SHE'S 50!!!!

7/17/2014 6:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0716-elle-macpherson-bikini-twitterHurry up and look at this photo of Elle MacPherson in a bikini, because at some point she's going to return to her home planet and we'll never see her again.

The 50-year-old supermodel (kids, this is what a supermodel looks like) posted the ridiculous photo to her Twitter page the other day, with a caption reading, "Super greens... After super swim."

As if you needed more proof Elle looks INSANE for her age ... Courtney Love just turned 50 as well.

Rock on, Elle.

I Didn't Even Realize

I Tweeted #FreePalestine

Rihanna has now tweeted a message praying for peace ... and an end to the conflict in the Middle East.

Rihanna
 deleted her #FreePalestine tweet 8 minutes after she posted it because she says it was never meant to be sent out in the first place ... a source close to the singer tells TMZ.

One source connected to the situation tells TMZ, "She deleted it because it was never meant to be tweeted," adding, "She didn't even realize it was a tweet until she started hearing from her fans."

The source says Rihanna was reading about the Middle East conflict online when she clicked a link.  The next thing she knew ... her fans were asking her why she was pro-Palestine.

The explanation is obviously curious.  In order to tweet, someone would either have to type the message or cut and paste it, and then click the "Tweet" button.

Our source says Rihanna is not pro-Palestine or pro-Israel ... "she is pro-peace," saying, "She doesn't want innocent people dying."

So we gotta ask ...

Rihanna Tweets Free PalestineRihanna just inserted herself in the middle of the Middle East conflict by tweeting, "#FreePalestine," but 8 minutes later deleted it.

It's unclear why Rihanna had the change of heart.  

The tweet was posted shortly after the proposed Middle East cease fire fell apart.

Rihanna's tweet comes 3 days after NBA star Dwight Howard tweeted the same thing ... just like Rihanna, Howard deleted the post. 

Howard later apologized for getting involved in international politics ... No such apology from Rihanna.

We reached out to Rihanna's rep ... so far no word back.

Joanna Krupa

It Was a Repost

EXCLUSIVE

070514_joanna_krupa_launch
Joanna Krupa says it's not a threat if you're quoting someone ... even if you blast it out to 262,079 people.

Krupa was on her way out of Equinox in West Hollywood Friday when she told us the post on her Instagram bashing Texas Tech cheerleader/safari hunter Kendall Jones was not original.

0702_joanna_krupa_instagram-comment
As we previously reported, Kendall's dad says they interpreted the message as a threat, but have no plans to file any sort of police report.


The reality star does have an idea for a fair fight between the animals and the college sophomore.  

Still, we gotta ask ...

Lea Michele

I'm Not Pregnant

Second 'Glee' Star Hacked

Lea Michele Pregnant

Looks like there's a "Glee" superfan on the loose ... because for the second time in 2 days one of the stars of the show had their Twitter page hacked.

Lea Michele seemingly announced her pregnancy on Twitter this morning -- but moments later her rep debunked the news ... telling us the actress had been hacked.

As we previously reported ... Chris Colfer received similar treatment yesterday when his account tweeted saying he was let go from the show for personal reasons -- but it turned out to be the work of some internet bandit.

Maybe Glee123 isn't the strongest password.

Chris Colfer Fired Glee
Chris Colfer has NOT been fired from "Glee" -- despite a mysterious tweet that said he was -- and he may be the victim of an Internet hoax ... according to his rep.

The tweet appeared just a few minutes ago ... from his verified account ... saying, "Due to personal issues, I have been let go from the cast of GLEE.  Explanations will come shortly..."

We're told ... his team believes his account was hacked because he's currently on a flight back from London without WiFi access.

The rep says, as far as she knows, Chris will be back for the next season of "Glee."

T-Boz fired off another salvo in her naked war with Rihanna ... this time upping the stakes by essentially challenging her to a fight.

RiRi and T-Boz squared off earlier this month after T-Boz trashed RiRi for regularly showing way too much skin.  Rihanna fired back with a twitter pic of a topless TLC -- i.e., Rihanna called her a hypocrite.

So it was T-Boz' move when we got her outside Bootsy Bellows Thursday night ... and she threw gas on the flames.

So we gotta ask ...

Hot Mugshot Guy
He may be the hottest criminal since Armie Hammer ... people are going nuts for accused weapons offender Jeremy Meeks.

Those eyes are hijacking Twitter.  The 30-year-old Stockton, CA convicted felon is being held on $900,000 bail for illegally possessing firearms and ammo, carrying a loaded firearm in public and criminal street gang activity.  The specific charge is street terrorism.

The Stockton Police Dept.'s Facebook page is blowing up ... with more than 15,000 likes and 3,700 comments.


Another guy -- Terry Bailey -- was arrested during the same police sweep, but his mug shot generated only 14 likes and 4 comments.

Life isn't fair.  That said, we gotta ask ....

T.I.

I'll Chew Your Throat Off Your Neck

If You Talk Crap on My Family

EXCLUSIVE

061814_ti_launchT.I. took direct aim at Azealia Banks for trashing his wife, warning that she may have a serious neck problem is she continues to insult Tiny.

Banks ignited the war by taking a shot at T.I.'s wife Tiny this week when she tweeted, "U want no mediocre but ... Have you seen your wife?" ... which is a play on T.I.'s new song, "No Mediocre."

T.I. responded with force on Twitter ... and then made it clear to our photog last night ... he's fair game but he will go after ANYONE who takes cheap shots at his family.

He sounds serious.

Tracy Morgan Trucker

I Was Not Drunk or High

I'm a Scapegoat!

The trucker who caused the fatal car crash that left Tracy Morgan in critical condition says he was not high on drugs or drunk when he slammed into the SUV ... and believes he's being skewered because a celeb was hurt in the accident.

A twitter account which appears to be Walmart trucker Kevin Roper was very active early Tuesday morning ... with a remorseful Roper saying, "I wish it was me and I can't express how horrible I feel."

Roper also denies reports he hadn't slept for 24 hours, claiming the bad press is all about finding a scapegoat, as he says, "because a famous person was involved." He wrote, "I was never charged at the scene of the accident because once again i was not guilty of any crime. Not until all the TV cameras came."

Roper seems to say he was not negligent and therefore not responsible for the crash, suggesting he was not at fault.

Roper concluded his tweets, writing, "So yes i am now most likely f****d because i had an unfortunate ACCIDENT with the wrong car that night."

The driver of the 18 wheeler who slammed into Tracy Morgan's limo Friday night was reportedly a road hog and proud of it, tweeting "Trying to win more than lose!  Driving trucks for a living.  It's my road.  Move or get hit! #Walmart."

Kevin Roper turned himself in after being charged with death by auto.  He was released a short time later.  James McNair was killed in the crash.  Tracy remains in critical condition and he'll be in the hospital for a while.

The New York Daily News spotted what they say is Roper's tweet.  A short time later Roper's twitter account became private.

A friend of Roper's told the Daily News the account was the real deal, although Walmart disputes it.

Roper showed no signs of slowing down before crashing into the limo ... though he swerved at the last minute.
