Wheel of Fortune accidentally stepped in it Monday night, when one of the answers to a puzzle on the show was "The Fast and the Furious" ... just two days after the death of The Fast and the Furious star Paul Walker. The show is now scrambling to explain, Fox News reports. It was just an "unfortunate coincidence," according to the show's official Twitter account, with that particular episode having been recorded weeks before Walker's death. It had been sent out "days ago" to the 200 local stations that aired it, explained host Pat Sajak. (More Paul Walker stories.)
