The Parks and Recreation actress made her original comment during an interview with Spinning Platters for her new film Celeste and Jesse Forever.
""A movie star, like John Travolta? Come out!" Jones said. "Come on. How many masseurs have to come forward? Let's do this."
Jones later apologised for the comment via her Twitter account.
"Made a thoughtless comment about John Travolta. I sincerely apologise. Nobody's personal life is my business," she wrote.
Travolta has denied all wrongdoing in the latest of many sexual misconduct lawsuits brought against him.
The actor was also sued in June by an author who claims that Travolta tried to discredit him after he made allegations about his sexuality.
