Paul Walker’s final goodbye and Big Sean tells off Bieber, what a jam packed week on social media.
#Fast&Furious film give emotional send-off to @RealPaulWalker
The seventh instalment of the wildly successful Fast & Furious franchise was released in cinemas this week, however it’s not the excessively fast cars and non-stop action that’s got everyone talking.
Series veteran Paul Walker and his on-screen character Brian O’Connor were honoured at the end of Furious 7 with a warm send-off featuring the song See You Again performed by Wiz Khalifa and Charlie Puth. Walker was killed in an off-set car crash in late 2013 during a break in filming Furious 7, which was half-way into production.
Fans have taken to Twitter to express their feelings about this.
First time director for the franchise, James Wan, said they faced a lot of challenges finishing the film (Walker’s two brothers were stand-ins for Walker in order to complete the film) but wanted to “retire Paul’s character in the most sincere and elegant way they could”.
