The episode aired on Monday, Dec. 2 and Paul Walker died on Saturday, Nov. 30. Many fans of the movie franchise were up in arms after seeing the episode, shocked at the insensitivity. But, the game show pre-tapes all of its episodes, and before the show aired, the official "Wheel of Fortune" Twitter account posted a message with an explanation.

Longtime host, Pat Sajak, tweeted his own condolences.

Walker's co-stars have expressed their grief over the actor's death, and the fate of "The Fast And The Furious" franchise has yet to be determined. The next installment, "Fast & Furious 7," was set to hit theaters July 11, 2014.
