Jason Biggs Calls Out Coffee Shop For Exploiting Paul Walker’s Death

Taylor J.

American Pie actor Jason Biggs co-starred with the late Paul Walker in Disney’s 2006 movie Frozen.  He, along with many other former co-stars, fans, friends and family are mourning the death of the forty year old actor.  Walker was killed in a fiery car crash in California on Saturday afternoon.  Biggs happened to stop at a coffee shop and noticed two tip jars.   One tip jar was labeled “The Fast and Furious,” the other had a sign that read, “Varsity Blues.”

He tweeted a pic of the jars and said, “Umm, am I crazy, or does this seem exploitive and in poor taste? @CoffeeBeanLA.

One fan did tweet and ask his pick for favorite movie.  His response?  Varsity Blues

Do you think it was in poor taste? 

Wheel of Fortune had a case of poor timing yesterday.  The episodes of the show that air are taped months ahead of time.  On Monday’s show, coincidentally, one of the puzzles was “movie title.”  Yep.  You guessed correctly.  The Fast And The Furious was the answer to the puzzle. 

Host Pat Sajak felt bad and tweeted his remorse for the poor timing.  Some fans tweeted that they didn’t have a problem with the timing and that is was the opposite of inappropriate, it was a tribute to the late Paul Walker.
