Westboro Baptist Church Celebrates Paul Walker’s Death, Plans To Picket Funeral
As family, costars and fans mourn “The Fast and the Furious” star Paul Walker’s death, the Westboro Baptist Church is celebrating the tragedy, and has even vowed to attend and picket his funeral, reports the Inquistr.
Soon after it was announced that Walker was killed in a fiery car crash Saturday afternoon in Santa Clarita, Calif., the controversial church posted on Twitter, “The furious God cut off Paul Walker… thank god for his codign [sic] wrath… WBC to picket funeral.”
Another message on Twitter read, “Paul Walker taught a nation to be fast & furious… he died that same way.”
Church members also posted a Vine video in which two kids play with toy cars on a race track. The top of the race track holds a sign that says “fast & furious,” and at the bottom of the track there are two signs; one says “God hates f***,” and the other says, “don’t worship the dead.”
It is not known if the church will really picket the star’s funeral.
Walker, 40, was a passenger in a new Porshe GT when his friend, Roger Rodas, hit a light pole and a tree. The car quickly went up in flames as a group grabbed fire extinguishers and ran to the car to put out the flames. Speed was a factor in the crash, according to a police statement.
Walker’s “Fast and Furious” costar Vin Diesel made his first public comments Monday in regards to his friend’s death and even thanked a group of fans at the scene of the accident using a police car’s microphone, as seen in video footage posted by KTLA.
