Wheel of Fortune airing a “Fast and Furious” puzzle last night (Dec. 2) following the death of the film franchise’s star Paul Walker was an “unfortunate coincidence,” the show says.


The show’s host Pat Sajak also took to Twitter to apologize for the mishap. “Feel terrible about timing of “Fast & Furious” puzzle tonight. Taped long ago & went out to 200 local stations days ago,” he wrote. Over the weekend, Walker died at the age of 40 a result of a terrible car crash as the passenger in his friend’s car while attending a charity event for his organization Reach Out Worldwide in California. Fast And Furious co-stars, like Tyrese and Vin Diesel, have visited the crash site and mourned the loss of their friend. “I will keep your energy with me forever #AshesOfAnAngel fast family around the world we live you and we love you,” the singer/actor/author wrote. “Paul is the heartbeat of this franchise and were gonna see to it that his energy and presence lives on forever.” Photo Credit: Twitter
