Star of the “Fast and Furious” franchise Paul Walker died on Saturday when the car he was in crashed into a lamppost in Santa Clarita, CA. Walker and his friend, who was also killed in the accident, were leaving a benefit for Walker’s charity Reach Out Worldwide.

Since the news of Walker’s death first broke, many celebrities have taken to Twitter to voice their sadness and send condolences to the actor’s family.

In particular, Walker's costars from the "Fast and Furious" movies have been the most vocal in their reactions. Tyrese Gibson appeared at the site of the accident on Sunday where he paid tribute to his friend. Jordana Brewster also released a statement, saying, “I don’t know anyone who lived each moment more fully and loved life more than Paul; making his loss all the more heartbreaking.”

Wu-Tang Clan member RZA wrote a song for Walker, his costar in the upcoming “Brick Mansions.” According to Rolling Stone, the song, titled “Destiny Bends,” is about the connection the two men felt when they met. "We saw in each other a kindred spirit of men coming from unlikely circumstances, and rising to be the light and beacon of our family and loved ones," he said.
