Weber Grills Issues Apology for Sending Out Meatloaf Recipe So Close to Meat Loaf’s Death

Published on:

Yesterday, the rock and metal world mourned the death of bombastic singer Meat Loaf, who passed away at age 74. However, someone who didn’t get the memo in time was the head of Weber Grills’ social media, who sent out a recipe for delicious grilled meat loaf around the time that news of the singer’s death became public. Now, Weber has sent out an apology letter, expressing their regrets for any discomfort they might have caused their customers.

According to MarketWatch, Weber sent out the following apology to any of its customers who, uh, signed up for the Weber Grills newsletter, because apparently that’s a thing?

“At the time we shared this recipe with you, we were not aware of the unfortunate passing of American singer and actor Mr. Marvin Lee Aday, also known as Meat Loaf. We want to express our deepest apologies for this oversight and for any offense this email may have caused.”

So there you have it: Weber didn’t mean to throw shade on the death of one of rock’s greatest showmen. They just wanted you to enjoy a delicious grilled meatloaf sandwich. No harm no foul, homie.

News of Meat Loaf’s death was confirmed by his family, who posted on his official Facebook account, “Our hearts are broken to announce that the incomparable Meat Loaf passed away tonight surrounded by his wife Deborah, daughters Pearl and Amanda and close friends.

“His amazing career spanned 6 decades that saw him sell over 100 Million albums worldwide and star in over 65 movies, including ‘Fight Club,’ ‘Focus,’ ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ and ‘Wayne’s World.’

“‘Bat Out of Hell’ remains one of the top 10 selling albums of all time.

“We know how much he meant to so many of you and we truly appreciate all of the love and support as we move through this time of grief in losing such an inspiring artist and beautiful man.

“We thank you for your understanding of our need for privacy at this time.

“From his heart to your souls…don’t ever stop rocking!”
