Adidas In Hot Water For Boston Marathon Themed E-Mail Subject

Seriously, do marketing campaigns need to go through human resources now, because this is probably the worst e-mail subject I've ever seen. 

Adidas is getting a lot of backlash, and FOR GOOD REASON in my humble opinion, for an e-mail that went out for their running line. The e-mail reads "Congrats, you survived the Boston Marathon!"

Considering what happened to Boston a few years ago, seems to me that many Adidas fans might be considering a switch to Nike.

Adidas released a statement, but with the damage done, who knows what's next:
