“Wheel of Fortune” had some really bad timing on Monday.
The game show broadcast an episode, pre-taped several weeks ago, that included The Fast and the Furious as the answer to a “movie title” puzzle.
Of course, that film’s star, Paul Walker, died in a car crash over the weekend.
The poor timing was acknowledged by a scroll that ran across the top of the screen, indicating that the show was done well before Walker’s “tragic passing.”
Host Pat Sajak tweeted, “Feel terrible about timing of ‘Fast & Furious’ puzzle tonight. Taped long ago & went out to 200 local stations days ago.”
The official “Wheel of Fortune” Twitter account posted the following message: “The hearts of everyone at Wheel of Fortune go out to the family, friends & fans of Paul Walker.”
As for the puzzle, it was an “unfortunately coincidence.”
Take a look at the poorly timed puzzle in the video below.
