Keri Hilson Amy Winehouse lookalikeKeri Hilson was attacked by Amy Winehouse fans on Twitter yesterday after posting a picture and message people felt was insensitive to Amy’s death.

Hilson posted a picture of herself and an incoherent Amy Winehouse-lookalike with the message: “*gasp* Amy Winehouse resurrected to party w/ me!!! (seriously, uncanny resemblance).”

However, considering the timing, people found her Tweet tasteless and they responded angrily:

“Maybe she can resurrect your career too”

“You are a stupid b*tch. No respect for the dead, just sad.”

“That ain’t funny scary hilson, go back to walmart.”

“Tacky and classless! Have some respect for dead heffa!”

Keri immediately apologized, writing: “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 :) ”

However, this isn’t the first time Keri’s come under fire for Amy. On Saturday, Keri shared her condolences, writing, “Amy Winehouse…so tragic. I loved her. She inspired me! I kept hoping she’d find a happier place than her self destructive state…damn.”

But Twitterfolk berated her for her word choice, claiming “self destructive” was mean.

Do you think Keri was being insensitive?
