Following some comments, which popped up on instagram and twitter under Diesel’s name, but later turned out to have been posted by fake accounts, the actor shared some touching sentiments in his first real statement. His post begins with a quote by Thomas Campbell: “To live in the hearts we leave behind, is not to die.” Diesel then goes on to express his grief in a statement, which has so far gathered thousands of likes and over 36,000 sympathetic comments, all lamenting the actor’s sudden death.

“I will always love you Brian,” Diesel adds, referring to Walker’s character in the “Fast” franchise, “as the brother you were on and offscreen.”

It was quickly pulled by the studio. Diesel has lead a wave of tributes, which has so far included tweets and messages from the likes of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Liam Neeson and Zoe Saldana.
