SYDNEY — An Australian family is in mourning again after losing relatives on MH17, just months after grieving the loss of loved ones on MH370.
Irene and George Burrows from northern Queensland lost their son Rodney Burrows and daughter-in-law Mary on Flight MH370, when it vanished between Beijing and Kuala Lumpur in March. Now, they have lost their step-granddaughter Maree Rizk and her husband Albert on MH17, which was shot down above eastern Ukraine on Thursday.
The joke isn’t really offensive but many people thought that it was way “too soon” to be making light of the situation. Twitter quickly called out Biggs for being offensive but the actor isn’t backing down.
