On Dec. 3 NY Times shares a report that Vin Diesel, the last of the "Fast & Furious" actors has publicly thanked fans for their support after the untimely death of Paul Walker, a close personal friend of Diesel. At a fan-created memorial, Diesel used a PA system in a police car to share with fans;

"I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciated him."

This is the first public address that the "Fast & Furious" star has made. On his Facebook, he has left several sentiments for his friend including;

"Pablo, I wish you could see the world right now ... and the profound impact, your full life has had on it, on us ... on me."

The co-stars were friends on and off screen. Paul Walker and Vin Diesel starred together in five of the seven films together. Diesel was not in the second film, "2 Fast 2 Furious" while Walker was not in the third film, "Tokyo Drift." They were filming the eighth movie when Walker's untimely death occurred in a fiery car crash with business partner Roger Rodas behind the wheel. Both died instantly.

Many find it surprising that Vin Diesel did not address the tactless comments that have circled the internet of people cracking jokes about the way that Paul Walker died.
