While family, friends and fans are mourning the tragic loss of Paul Walker, some media outlets are shockingly trashing the late actor, 40, who died in a fiery car crash on Nov. 30.
This was the last thing we would ever expect to happen after the death of Paul Walker. The actor, who died from a combination of both traumatic and thermal injuries, is now being criticized by some of the largest media outlets. It’s so horrific and in such bad taste.
Paul Walker’s Death Causes Negativity In Press
In New York Times‘ article all about Paul’s tragic death, they looked back at his successful movie career, but also tastelessly threw in a few jabs.
Sequels followed and continued to attract audiences with over-the-top car chases, but he had trouble finding major success outside the franchise.
Another segment out of the article is below:
Critics could be hard on Mr. Walker. In a 2003 review of the movie “Timeline” Stephen Holden described Mr. Walker in The New York Times as “a throwback to the days when imitation Tab Hunters were tapped for potential stardom simply on the basis of their dimpled smiles and vacant, sparkly eyes.”
Paul Walker Dissed In Media
While we thought New York Times was tasteless, we were much more shocked from Vulture.com’s post. We’ll just start with the headline and go from there: “An Everyman With Leading Man Looks.”
Paul definitely wasn’t an “everyman” but actually a very talented actor. Apparently Vulture didn’t agree. The article overall comments on how he is underrated and can only act sometimes.
It has a somewhat positive angle, but jabs thrown in here and there are just not necessary. Here are some lines the author used, which are really just in bad taste:
Let’s face it: Walker wasn’t exactly regarded as one of the finer actors of his generation.
Walker may not have had a ton of range, but he could do certain things very well.
With Paul Walker there, everyone else could go big, brave, and a little ridiculous. To put it another way: Even the craziest sandwich needs some bread.
We are so shocked by these posts, as we hope that everyone can focus on the positive at this sad time — he was a great actor, a loving father, and an all around great friend to all of his loved ones.
