Timing couldn't have been worse Monday for "Wheel of Fortune."
Just two days after actor Paul Walker's death, the game show featured the title of the film franchise in which Walker starred -- "The Fast and the Furious" -- as a puzzle answer. The segment was taped Oct. 4
Host Paul Sajak tweeted that he "feel(s) terrible about timing of 'Fast & Furious' puzzle tonight," adding that the episode, "Taped long ago & went out to 200 local stations days ago."
The show said on its official Twitter account that, "The hearts of everyone at Wheel of Fortune go out to the family, friends & fans of Paul Walker."
The next film in the franchise, "Fast & Furious 7," was filming in Atlanta before Walker's death. According to the Hollywood Reporter, production on the film has been "delayed" but the project "won't be scrapped." Director James Wan and executives from Universal Pictures discussed the project's future Sunday and "how to proceed in a manner that would be respectful to Walker's death."
