Los Angeles Coffee Shop Uses Paul Walker’s Death To Rake In Extra Tips

Paul Walker’s untimely death last weekend left most of us genuinely shocked and saddened. Some people posted sweet messages on Walker’s Facebook page, others brought flowers to the crash site, but the employees at an LA Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf had a very different reaction: they set out two tip jars labeled with the titles of popular Paul Walker movies, encouraging customers to vote for their favorites with cash. The supremely tacky move was called out by none other than Jason Biggs, who happened to see the jars and tweeted the above photo to the Coffee Bean Twitter account, along with the message, “Umm, am I crazy, or does this seem exploitive [sic] and in poor taste?” The company was appropriately horrified. “This is completely inconsistent with our brand values and the jars have since been removed,” said a Coffee Bean spokesperson. “Our thoughts and condolences remain with the many friends and family of Paul Walker during this difficult time.” [Buzzfeed]
