Keri Hilson Apologizes for Twitter Photo of Amy Winehouse Look-a-Like

While partying last night in New York, Keri Hilson bumped into a fan dressed as Amy Winehouse. She took to Twitter to share:

“Gasp* Amy Winehouse resurrected to party w/ me!!! (seriously, uncanny resemblance).”

Of course Amy Winehouse fans were outraged and wasted no time sharing their disgust with Keri’s actions.

Keri later replied:

Come on, I mean no harm. All due respect. But really the resemblance freaked me out. This was simply the best tribute ever. #RIPAMYWINEHOUSE

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.

I agree that her wording was a bit distasteful, “Amy resurrected to party with me.”  The woman did just pass Saturday.  Too soon Keri, too soon.

On a more serious note, Amy Winehouse was laid to rest this morning in London.  No drugs were found in her apartment and the results of her autopsy were inconclusive. Officials expect the results of her toxicology test to be available in 2-4 weeks.
