Omaha ABC affiliate KETV has apologized for its tweet comparing missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 to the ABC series “Lost.”

The station tweeted a look alike of the TV series poster with passengers in silhouette standing in front of the words “Flight 370.” The heading of the tweet read, “What do YOU think happened to #Flight370?” The tweet has since been removed.

“We apologize for the post,” the station told The Hollywood Reporter. “While it was not intended to be insensitive, we can see how it would be viewed that way in light of such a tragedy.”
