Grill maker company Weber offered up a recipe on how to make “BBQ Meat Loaf” in an email on Friday, before realizing the message coincided with the death of actor and rock legend Meat Loaf, The Associated Press reported.

“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,” Weber said in a followup message, according to the news outlet. “We want to express our deepest apologies for this oversight and for any offense this email may have caused.”

Earlier this week, the actor and musician died at the age of 74. Meat Loaf, whose real name is Marvin Lee Aday, appeared in 65 films including “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” “Fight Club,” “Wayne’s World” and “Focus.” 

Aday also spent a season on former President Trump’s “Celebrity Apprentice” reality TV show and sold tens of millions of albums as a rock artist. 

“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,” a statement posted to his Facebook account read following the announcement of his death. 

“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!”
