Wheel Of Fortune Airs Episode With “Fast And The Furious” Puzzle In Wake Of Paul Walker’s Death

Competition, Entertainment, Game Show, OMG, TMZ, WTF

File this one under: OOOPS.

“Wheel of Fortune” aired an episode last night that featured a puzzle with the answer “The Fast and the Furious” … just days after Paul Walker died … and now the show is in full spin mode.

During the show, producers ran a crawl on the top of the screen that read, “This episode was taped a few weeks ago, prior to the tragic passing of ‘The Fast and the Furious’ actor Paul Walker.”

After the show aired, Pat Sajak tweeted, “Feel terrible about timing of ‘Fast & Furious’ puzzle tonight. Taped long ago & went out to 200 local stations days ago.”

Still, it’s unclear why producers didn’t simply pull the episode to run at a later date.

Forget the 'crawl'. There is absolutely no reason they couldn’t have just aired a different episode, these things are taped MONTHS ahead of time. All it takes is a couple of clicks on a keyboard.
