"Wheel of Fortune" game show is catching a lot of heat after airing a "Fast & Furious" puzzle on last night's show just days after the film's star Paul Walker was killed in a car crash according to Tuesday, December 3 reports from TMZ.

Instead of delaying the airing of that particular episode, the show's producers chose to run a crawl screen stating that "This episode was taped a few weeks ago, prior to the tragic passing of 'The Fast and the Furious' actor Paul Walker."

Following the show, Pat Sajak tweeted his regrets posting, "Feel terrible about timing of 'Fast & Furious' puzzle tonight. Taped long ago & went out to 200 local stations days ago."

This segment of "Wheel of Fortune" did not go over well with the late Paul Walker's fans, who feel that the show's producer's should have been more sensitive to the feeling of Walker's family and pulled the episode, airing it at a later date.
