Company ‘apologises for sending grilled meatloaf recipe’ on day of star’s death

A company appears to have apologised to its email subscribers after sending a grilled meatloaf recipe on the day that star Meat Loaf died.

It was announced yesterday (Friday January 21) that Bat Out of Hell legend Meat Loaf had died aged 74.

Meat Loaf, otherwise known as Michael Lee Aday, died on Thursday night (January 20) with his wife Deborah by his side, his agent Michael Greene announced.

With many fans mourning the singer, it seemed that some were stunned when company Weber, which manufactures charcoal, gas, and electric outdoor grills, reportedly sent a cooking recipe for grilled meatloaf on Friday as part of its 'Recipe of the Week' email.

A screenshot of an apology email, seemingly sent by the firm, has made its way onto Twitter.

The photo was shared by a Twitter user named Adam, who wrote: "I cannot stop laughing."

The email read: "Dear Adam, this morning you received our weekly 'Recipe of the Week email, which is sent to you every Friday.

"In today's email, we highlighted a grilled meatloaf recipe. 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.

The screenshot has now gone viral, racking up hundreds of retweets and thousands of likes.

Many seemed to find the situation amusing, as one wrote: "I've not laughed out loud in public for so long. That was totally spontaneous."

Another added: "I'm laughing but it's with all due respect."

While a third chimed in: "Just imagine all those people who ate meatloaf before realising that Meatloaf had passed. That sort of disrespect will be difficult to get over."

Others also said they now wanted the grilled meatloaf recipe themselves.

"Now l am curious… how one would cook meatloaf on a grill? I need answers," asked one.

As another added: "Not gonna lie, I'm kinda interested in this grilled meatloaf recipe now."

For those who do want the grilled meatloaf recipe, you'll be glad to hear it's still up on the Weber website.

Daily Star has contacted Weber for comment.
