“Wheel of Fortune” host Pat Sajak took to Twitter Monday night to explain the timing behind the show’s “The Fast and the Furious” puzzle, which closely followed the Saturday death of star Paul Walker. Plenty of viewers were struck by the poorly timed coincidence.

Literally 3 days after Paul Walker passed away, Wheel of Fortune used Fast and Furious as one of their phrases. I'll never understand it.

How ironic is it that I'm watching the wheel of fortune ( for whatever reason? ) and the movie title was fast and furious. ?

@patsajak The fortunate thing is that you've built a career upon having good character, and we understand that this isn't deliberate.
