Whatever The Twitter Equivalent Of “Open Mouth, Insert Foot” Is, Keri Hilson Did Just That (About Amy Winehouse, No Less!)

|

You know the old phrase “Watch what you eat?” While that’s just as important in 2011 as it has always been, it’s also important to watch what you tweet! Keri Hilson found that out the hard way yesterday, after sending out a tweet which said “*gasp* Amy Winehouse resurrected to party w/ me!!! (seriously, uncanny resemblance)” and included the above Twitpic. The tweet, while certainly not malicious by any stretch of the imagination, was definitely in bad taste, and a significant portion of @MissKeriBaby‘s 1.5 million followers let her know it, replying back with cries of “too soon,” “not funny” and other, much nastier sentiments that we cannot share with you here.

Hilson, to her credit, quickly recognized the error of her ways and tweeted out the following apologetic missives to her followers:

What do you guys think? Is Keri in the clear, or does she owe the Winehouse family a more formal apology? Let us know in the comments below.

    TOO SOO??? Huh that is a joke. She should have NEVER said a FN word about it. HOW dare her. I sure hope she never loses someone and has to deal with the pain. GROW up Keri!!! And really who is she anyway???

  2. Jane says:

    Who the hell IS this Keri girl, anyway???

  3. Lisa says:

    Seriously I feel like she has no need to apologize because clearly it was a joke. It was her way of dealing with the lost and showing twitterville a fan of Amy so clearly people need to back off of ms.keri baby, especially since she took the time out to apologize. I still love you keri

    Honestly. people are so busy trying to make Amy Winehouse so infamous that they didn’t step back and look at the big picture.
    She’s was a junkie. No one cared about then and now their trying to pretend like they were such big god damn fans!
    I’m sure none of you people even knew who the hell Amy Winehouse was!
    Let’s all just go on with on with our lives and stop acting like you were all Amy’s best friends!
    It amazes me how fake you people are these days.
    Btw, Keri you are an amazing muscician who I believe doesn’t waste her talent on drugs like some former beehive wearing singers we knew.
