  1. Actor Paul Walker, star of the The Fast and The Furious film franchise and movies such as Into The Blue and Pleasantville, was reported dead last night after a car crash in Valencia, California involving him and a friend. Walker was apparently coming from a charity event for the victims of typhoon Haiyan.
     Fans immediately took to social media to express their condolences. However, there was a lot of confusion surrounding the tragedy. Was he really dead, or was it just another internet hoax? People had no idea what to think, especially since there actually was an internet hoax involving Walker's death...the day before he actually died. 
  2. TMZ, the popular celebrity gossip website, was the first to report the death. But like mentioned above, people had a hard time believing the story at first.  Though TMZ has proved in the past that they are a reputable source for breaking entertainment news, there's always reason to be skeptical. 


  3. It wasn't until almost an hour later that a representative for Walker confirmed the story. The media outlets followed immediately.
  4. The outpouring of sadness from fans began immediately.
  5. Walker's death was met with a wave of condolences over social media from other celebrities as well, including some of his Fast and The Furious castmastes.
