Some crude comments about Paul Ryan’s wife landed the American Pie star—who voices Leonardo on Nickelodeon’s Ninja Turtles series—in hot water with the network.

Nickelodeon wants to climb back into its shell after Jason Biggs made some raunchy comments on Twitter last week.

 

Biggs, who is voicing Leonardo on the network’s upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series, tweeted inflammatory comments about the recent Republican National Convention. Nickelodeon is apologizing for linking to Biggs’ account from the show’s Twitter account, @TMNTMaster.

On Sept. 1, Nickelodeon suggested people follow Biggs’ Twitter account but his feed was filled with a series of bawdy remarks about several RNC speakers, including Ann Romney. That tweet has since been deleted, which was sent to the feed’s 2,000 followers.

“I’d totes dip a pinky or two in Paul Ryan’s wife’s bleached asshole (she obvs bleaches her asshole.) #RNC”, wrote Biggs in a tweet from late August, to his 170,000 followers.

The American Pie star also tweeted other tweets that Nickelodeon might consider just a tad off-brand, including a tweet about the size of his penis. Twitchy, a right-leaning Twitter curation site, also captured other baudy tweets from the actor, including one tweet that had pictures of sex toys.

Nickelodeon issued a statement Wednesday saying the it does not “support or condone the use of graphic or vulgar language on any of our platforms.” The Viacom-owned children’s channel said it was a “mistake” to link to Biggs’ account.

“We also insisted Jason use better judgement and discretion in public communications while affiliated with our brand,” the network said in a statement.

Biggs hasn’t tweeted since Aug. 31.
