It so sad and outrageous that some are trying to cash in or gain popularity by exploiting the tragic death of Paul Walker.
After just two days ago it has been discovered that someone set up a fake Facebook page for the late actor’s daughter Meadow Walker, Jason Biggs pointed out via Twitter that a Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf cafe in Los Angeles is trying to capitalize on Walker‘s death.
The ‘American Pie‘ star slammed the coffee chain for using Paul Walker-inspired tip jars labeled “Varsity Blues” and “Fast and Furious“, the names of two of the late actor’s most famous movies.
Upset by the discovery, Biggs posted a photo of the jars and called out the coffee shop.
