'Wheel of Fortune' airs 'Fast and the Furious' episode after Paul Walker's death

"Wheel of Fortune" made a bit of a mistake on their episode Monday night. On Dec. 3, Gossip Cop shared a video from the new episode. They had a puzzle where one of the answers was "The Fast and The Furious." This show aired on Monday just two days after Paul Walker died. His official autopsy will happen today.

This episode was taped a few weeks ago but was planned to air on Monday. They didn't make any changes and just went ahead and let it air which was probably not their smartest move. They did realize it was happening though because they ran a scroll across the screen making sure everyone knew that it was already recorded before his death.

Pat Sajak went to Twitter saying, "Feel terrible about timing of ‘Fast & Furious’ puzzle tonight. Taped long ago & went out to 200 local stations days ago." They probably should have decided to air it at a later time and date or not at all.
