Amazon is telling customers that people purchased gifts for their nonexistent newborns.
Users of Amazon's delivery service tweeted about emails they received from the website Tuesday afternoon, many of them confirming that they weren't expecting and making light-hearted references to the situation, while others weren't as happy to receive the faulty message.
Shoutout to everyone getting an Amazon baby registry email who is now furiously double checking to make sure there's no baby in their future— Matt Lindner (@mattlindner) September 19, 2017
Amazon just informed me that someone has purchased a gift from my baby registry. My baby is 21, and hopes it's a keg.— Karen Tumulty (@ktumulty) September 19, 2017
Both men and women appeared to get the messages.
"We are notifying affected customers. A technical glitch caused us to inadvertently send a gift alert email earlier today," an Amazon spokesperson told the Washington Examiner.
Amazon also apologized to customers for any "confusion" the company may have caused.
