Jason Biggs Slams Coffee Shop For "Exploitive" Paul Walker-Themed Tip Jars
Coffee Shop Responds to Jason Biggs' Backlash Over Paul Walker-Themed Tip Jars
If anyone enjoys a good joke, it's American Pie alum Jason Biggs. But the 35-year-old actor didn't quite appreciate the gesture made by a local Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf in Los Angeles on Dec. 3. The Orange Is the New Black star tweeted a photo of the store's two opposing tip jars, which attempted to poll Coffee Bean customers, reading "Fast and Furious" and "Varsity Blues" -- two of the late Paul Walker's biggest movies.
"Umm, am I crazy, or does this seem exploitive and in poor taste? @CoffeeBeanLA," he tweeted with the picture.
Actor Paul Walker passed away on Nov. 30 after the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT he was riding in hit a lamp post and caught fire. The crash also killed Walker's friend and the possible driver Roger Rodas. The loss of the popular Fast and the Furious star has been hard on family, friends, and fans alike.
Walker is survived by his 15-year-old daughter Meadow, his parents, Paul and Cheryl, his two brothers, Cody and Caleb, and his sister, Ashley.
Biggs costarred with Walker, who was 40 at the time of his death, in the 2006 Disney film Eight Below. And though he seemed offended by the jars, when a fan asked which one he'd put a dollar in he replied, "Varsity Blues. Duh."
