A hoax that involved Paul Walker of The Fast And Furious fame swirled around the social media circles just a day before his death in a fatal car crash. In what was proclaimed as a hoax by Walker’s publicists went on to become true yesterday when the Porsche was in, barged into a tree and skidded to hit a light pole. It went up in flames only seconds later. The accident occurred in California. His friend, Roger Rodas too perished in the crash.
Fans and the film fraternity are still so shocked with this event that some refuse to believe that Walker is indeed no more. The American actor catapulted to fame after his stint in The Fast and Furious franchise.
On 29 November, fans were in for a shock when an image of (supposed) Walker injured on the face and dead, circulated on the web. It can only be called coincidental that the star actually met such a tragic fate at 7: 15 pm (Pacific time) yesterday. Ame Van Iden, Walker’s representative said, “Sadly, I must confirm that Paul did pass away this afternoon in a car accident.”
The irony reflects through the fact that the actor seems to have become a victim of the hoax.
