NEW YORK (AP) -- Jason Biggs is brushing off criticism he received during the recent election season for vulgar tweets that referenced the wives of both Republican Mitt Romney and his running mate in the presidential race, Paul Ryan.

The "American Pie" star took heat for off-color comments posted to his Twitter feed at the time of the Republican National Convention in August. The outpouring of criticism from parents groups, pundits and others led Nickelodeon to issue an apology for the actor's comments on the social media website. Biggs is providing one of the voices in the cable TV station's new animated series "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles."
"I made a political tweet, so I got a little bit of heat from the right," he said.
With elections over, Biggs says he's moving on.
He appeared Monday night in New York at the annual 24 Hour Plays event, which was sponsored by luxury pen-maker Montblanc to benefit the Urban Arts Partnership. The benefit draws more than two dozen actors who write, rehearse, and perform one of six plays that they began working on the night before.
Biggs' tweets have also poked fun at the Kardashians, Amanda Bynes, Lindsay Lohan and the ABC show "The Bachelorette."
"I'm more afraid of the Kardashians, than I am of the Republicans," he said.
He said he sees Twitter as an extension of the darker side of his humor.
As a three-time performer in 24 Hour Plays benefit, Biggs says he's grown to feel more comfortable with the process.
"It's a little easier. But it's still nerve-racking, man."
