Walmart received backlash on Twitter after they tweeted an insensitive joke about actor Paul Walker.

According to TMZ, a Twitter user was excited about Walmart selling Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls with strawberry and cream-flavored icing and shared the tweet along with a speeding car gif  “Me racin to the nearest Wally World.” Walmart responded and tweeted “Hey. Paul Walker. Click it, or ticket.”

However, the tweet did not go over well with their followers since Walker died in a deadly car accident where his friend was driving a Porsche at 100 mph in November 2013.
