Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak issued an apology for airing a show that featured a puzzle with the answer "The Fast and the Furious" just days after the franchise's star Paul Walker died in a car crash.

Instead of pulling the episode, producers decided to run a notification 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."
