T.I., Ludacris, The Game, 50 Cent and many others have taken to social media to mourn Paul Walker's death.
For those unaware, 40-year-old actor/director Paul Walker, of Fast & Furious fame, was killed yesterday afternoon in a tragic car accident in Santa Clarita, California. Walker was riding in the passenger seat as friend/business partner Roger Rodas test drove a new Porsche, when the vehicle suddenly spun out of control, hit a a tree and exploded on impact, killing them both.
Walker and Roads co-founded the Reach Out World Wide Foundation to assist with disaster relief in other countries, and they'd organized a fundraiser for Philippine hurricane victims on Saturday, which was where they were directly before the accident happened.
After learning of his untimely passing, countless friends, colleagues and fans took to social media to mourn him, among them his Fast & Furious co-stars Tyrese and Ludacris, as well as his Takers co-star T.I. Read some of their words below, which were drawn from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
