“Fast And The Furious” Word Puzzle Aired On Wheel Of Fortune Last Night
According to TMZ reports:
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.
Fawk yo’ 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 a couple of clicks on a keyboard…
