Walmart is reportedly apologizing for a tweet that appears to reference actor Paul Walker's death.

Thursday someone jokingly tweeted to Walmart a 'gif' of a fast car saying that's how they race to Walmart.

The retailer's twitter page responded-- quote-- "Hey, Paul Walker. Click it or ticket."

That tweet immediately drew criticism from those who claimed it mocked "The Fast and the Furious" actor.

Walker was killed in a car crash in 2013.

USA Today reported that Walmart acknowledged Thursday’s tweet in a statement to them.

The retailer told the newspaper that the tweet was "posted in poor judgment" and that it "has been removed."
