L.A. Coffee Shop Exploits Paul Walker's Death (UPDATE)

A disturbing new Twitter photo has surfaced that seemingly exploits the death of the late Paul Walker.

The "Fast and the Furious" star died on Saturday (Nov. 30) in a car accident in Santa Clarita, Calif., after his friend Roger Rodas' Porsche Carrera GT crashed and exploded. He was 40 years old.

Now, it appears Los Angeles coffee shop the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf is referencing Walker's death as it features two tip jars titled "Fast and Furious" and "Varsity Blues" near its register. Actor Jason Biggs posted the photo, writing, "Umm, am I crazy, or does this seem exploitive and in poor taste?"

Walker, who starred in "Fast and the Furious" and "Varsity Blues," also appeared in films including "Pleasantville," "She's All That," "Joy Ride," "Into The Blue" and "Flags of Our Fathers."

UPDATE: The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf released a statement to Us Weekly regarding the jars and said they have been removed.

The official statement reads, "This is completely inconsistent with our brand values and the jars have since been removed. Our thoughts and condolences remain with the many friends and family of Paul Walker during this difficult time. The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf would like to thank Jason Biggs for bringing this matter to our attention."
