Cruel Rumor Has Paul Walker Doing Something Unthinkable


paul walkerDenial is an understandable part of the grieving process. When we lose someone we love or admire, of course our brains and hearts are going to have a hard time coming to terms with the reality of that situation. But facing the truth is crucial if healing is ever to begin.

This holds true even if the person we're grieving is a celebrity. That's one of the many reasons why the idea of faking your own death is so deplorable. It just hurts so many people. Paul Walker, taken from the world and his family too soon, and his friend Roger Rodas are now being accused of doing just that -- faking the accident that cost them their lives. 


More from The Stir: 'Fast & Furious' Actor Paul Walker Dead at 40

It's just beyond cruel to pick at the fresh wound of Paul and Roger's loss. One website has started trying to SELL PHOTOS of a "still alive" Paul Walker. They claim that the photos of the fiery crash we all saw was a fake -- featuring a man-made fire, and a car placed inside it after the fact. It's an insane gambit on behalf of the site to try and make money at the expense of Paul Walker's good name and if Twitter is anything to go by -- people are furious about it. 

There's only one thing to be gained from started this awful rumor -- money. There are, however, countless things to lose. Not only does this keep people from moving forward in the grieving process, but it besmirches the actor's memory. Why on earth would Paul Walker do something so cruel? It doesn't make any sense.

Do you think this is just a cruel rumor, or do you believe it?

just because he liked the lil girls doesnt mean he would fake his death

I think some people don't want to accept the fact that he's gone. Same with some of the rapid Elvis fans who are convinced the legendary rock and roll singer is still somewhere out there.

People still think that he's alive due to that video TMZ posted awhile back of them talking to him. It's sad, but he died people. He really is dead. His daughter is without her father and the people doing this is just causing more pain.

As somebody who lost a friend in a auto fire an 18 wheeler to be exact it's a painful death. Why have the family and true friends relive the grieving over and over? I realize there's folks out there who think no more of making either money or causing folks to continue to grieve for those they lost but when does it stop? Those responsible should be locked away from all civilization and forced to live with their own kind and never be allowed back into society of decent caring humanity.

Whomever is doing these publicity stunts is deplorable, these people need to find a real cause to donate their time to. Stop hurting the families who lost these loved ones, let them grieve and get on with your lives.

To make a rumor up of any kind is deplorable.  To me, what is even worse, is the fact that these two men would drive that fast on a regular road and put their lives at risk.  It was senseless and stupid.  My sincere condolences to their families and friends.
