Keri Hilson’s followers reacted after the singer uploaded this photo of her out partying with an Amy Winehouse fan. The caption of the picture read: “*gasp* Amy Winehouse resurrected to party w/ (with) me!!! (seriously, uncanny resemblance).”







Late British star, Amy Winehouse, was found dead in her home in London on Saturday, July 23rd, 2011.

This picture was uploaded a few hours before the singer’s funeral service which was held today.

After several retweets and hate comments from followers and people who had seen the tweet photo, Keri Hilson replied within an hour writing, “Come on, I mean no harm. All due respect. But really the resemblance freaked me out. This was simply the best tribute ever. #RIP Amy Winehouse… 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 definitely see where tweeps are coming from but I feel like anyone else who isn’t a celebrity could have done this and gotten away with it. What do you guys think? Are people overreacting?
