Keri Hilson Apologizes for Amy Winehouse Tweet


Tray Hova / July 26, 2011

We noted earlier today that R&B starlet Keri Hilson tweeted a picture of herself and a fan who resembled the late Amy Winehouse. Fans of Winehouse were displeased with the picture and did not hesitate to voice their disproval to Keri directly.

Well, Ms. Keri Baby finally took to her Twitter soapbox for a three tweet apology:

“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.”

Now that this Twitter-beef is laid to rest as well as Amy herself in London. May she now and forever Rest In Peace. -Tyler McDermott
