Vin Diesel Pays Tribute To Paul Walker During MTV Movie Awards Acceptance Speech
VIN DIESEL PAYS TRIBUTE TO PAUL WALKER AT MTV MOVIE AWARDS
MTV awarded the Generation Award to the Fast and the Furious franchise Sunday night. Diesel called the whole franchise family up on stage to accept the award, and of course, took the time to honor Walker, who passed away in 2013 in a car accident.
“In 2002, I was standing on this stage and MTV had given Paul Walker and I an award for best duo,” recalled Diesel. “And now, 15 years later, I’m with my whole family and you’ve given us the Generation Award… I could never stand on this stage and talk about Fast and Furious without giving love to my brother Pablo, our brother Pablo.” he continued at the end. “We hope you’re proud.”
He also took the time to thank his fans, and the current generation. “I gotta thank a generation that was willing to accept this multicultural franchise, where it didn’t matter what color your skin was or what country you were from,” Diesel said. “When you’re family, you’re family.”
The Fate of the Furious, the eighth installment in the successful franchise, is in theaters now.
