Amy Winehouse Fans Furious Over Keri Hilson Twitter Photo
Singer Keri Hilson really infuriated people in the Twitterverse when she posted a picture of herself and an Amy Winehouse look-alike with the message: “*gasp* Amy Winehouse resurrected to party w/ me!!! (seriously, uncanny resemblance).”
“So sorry to see your head is empty and your heart… oh, yeah, what heart?”
“Extremely disrespectful & inappropriate.”
“Hi Keri, could I ask, what was going through your head when you decided to post this?”
Needless to say, it was a little too soon for that joke (three days) and a lot of people were offended by the tweet.
After the first bash of hate-tweets started flooding in, Hilson quickly apologized for her faux pas.
“Come on, I mean no harm. All due respect. But really the resemblance freaked me out. This was simply the best tribute ever. #RIPAMYWINEHOUSE….Bedtime. I apologize 2 anyone who might’ve taken it the wrong way. As a fan, I thought it was cool that she dressed up to honor Amy. I had no ill intent, but I understand how it appears insensitive…my bad twitterville. For real. Good night.”
Maybe next time, Keri Hilson will think before she tweets.
