Keri Hilson Apologizes for Amy Winehouse Tweet

Last night, Keri Hilson was out partying at Juliet in New York when she ran into a fan dressed as Amy Winehouse. “Gasp* Amy Winehouse resurrected to party w/ me!!! (seriously, uncanny resemblance)“, she tweeted before receiving hundreds of tweets from outraged fans of Amy Winehouse who believed the tweet was insensitive and in bad taste.

Keri, later apologized, stating her tweets were not meant to be disrespectful:

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.
