(RNN) - Athletic clothing company Adidas issued an apology through Twitter after sending an email that some considered to be insensitive.

The email in question read,  "Congrats, you survived the Boston Marathon!"

Users across social media were quick to point out the email.

The apology read, "We are incredibly sorry. Clearly, there was no thought given to the insensitive email subject line we sent Tuesday. We deeply apologize for our mistake."

On April 15, 2013, Chechen-American brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev placed and detonated two homemade bombs near the Boston Marathon finish line.

The blast killed three people and injured several hundred others.

A manhunt ensued after the bombing and the older brother, Tamerlan, was killed. Dzhokhar was captured on April 19, a few days after the marathon.
