Vin Diesel

Emotional Speech at Paul Walker Crash Site

'He's An Angel In Heaven'

12/3/2013 5:59 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

120313_vin_diesel_launch_wm
Vin Diesel finally broke his silence on the death of his friend Paul Walker last night -- arriving at the crash site and thanking mourners for "showing that angel in heaven how much you appreciate him."

Diesel and Walker had appeared in several "Fast and the Furious" movies together -- and considered each other close friends off camera.

When Vin arrived to the crash site, a police officer allowed the actor to use the loudspeaker from a squad car to address the huge crowd ... and he delivered a heartfelt speech.

"To show the love that you have shown Paul ... it's gonna stay with me forever."

After the speech we asked Vin about the future of the movie franchise -- to which he replied, "I can't even think about anything but the loss of a loved one."

Already tired of people lionizing an average actor who threw his life away.

Vin Diesel is a public disgrace to show up there. gaining sympathy on a tragedy is very low. And Walker and his driver asked for this while willingly speeding like morons.

They seem to forget that there were two people in that car , not one.. and even tho I did not know Paul I feel he would be shouting from beyond that he was not alone in that car... I think we should take a moment for Roger Rodas ..

When the car hit the tree it severed the fuel line and the fuel pump was still pumping and dumping fuel on the ground. The fuel pump on that car pumps much more than a regular Porsche. Most Race Cars have a Fuel Pump Auto-Shut-Off when it's in an accident, but if the key is still on the pump may still be dumping fuel.
This will need to be studied.

wow wtf    

Call me a cynic but him waiting to be the last one to say anything and then showing up with his freaking entourage and getting on the loud speaker is kind of disgusting. He's always struck me as an ego-maniac and this display is no different. He and Tyrese both need to check themselves and stop trying to get attention during this tough time. You've got Jordana Brewster, Ludacris, and other actors from the franchise issuing heartfelt statements, and Michelle Rodriguez trying to promote his charity in his memory. All good things. Then you have Tyrese and Vin showing up where the cameras are -- and making it about themselves. Smh.

I'm sorry but those death groupies hanging around that crash site for days on end remind me of vultures ... don't you have any better way to honor this mans death other than standing vigil with your cell phones hoping to get a shot of Vin Diesel or someone else???????? Get a life and go home!!!!!!!!!!!!

You people with nasty comments should be ashamed! These young men are someone's brother, someone's son and someone's father; no matter what or how they died they are loved and will be missed. Show some respect!

If Mother Teresa and Paul Walker are in the same heaven, you might ask, why dedicating and sacrificing a whole life for charity when you could be a Hollywood macho who loves hot chicks and fast cars??

Walker was a saint, now he's an Angel...BS!
