Outdoor grill maker Weber apologized on Friday for sending a recipe-of-the-week email earlier that day featuring instructions on how to prepare“BBQ Meat Loaf.”The email coincided with news of the death of Marvin Lee Aday, best known as rock superstar Meat Loaf.

戶外烤架製造商韋伯週五致歉,因為該公司當天稍早寄發的「每週食譜」電子郵件,其內容包括指導如何準備「肉塊烤肉」。該電郵(寄發的時間)恰逢以藝名「肉塊」為人所知的搖滾巨星馬文.李.艾德傳出過世的消息。

Not long after sending out its recipe, Weber Grills followed up, offering its “sincerest apologies” to recipients.

「韋伯燒烤」在發出食譜電郵後不久跟進,向電郵收件人致上「最誠摯的歉意」。
