CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - On Tuesday many Amazon customers received an email making it seem like the online retail giant has gotten into the baby predicting business.

The email stated "A gift is on its way," and showed a baby in diapers crawling away. The email came from the Amazon baby registry and went out to a large portion of customers.

Many who received the Amazon email aren't pregnant, can't conceive or don't have a baby registry and some aren't even female.

While many may have thought the email was a scam, trying to get you to click to "See Your Thank You List," the company admitted it was their mistake.

According to a CNN article, an Amazon spokesperson said the email was a glitch that caused the system to "inadvertently send a gift alert email earlier today."

The email probably caused some to have an awkward moment with questions of, "Am I pregnant?" And some of those people have not disappointed on social media.

On the not-so-funny side of the issue, some of the recipients of the email were offended or hurt because of problems or complications with pregnancies and they're letting Amazon know about it.
