Keri Hilson Sparks Amy Winehouse Controversy

Fans call Keri's twitpic "insensitive."

Keri Hilson set the Twittersphere ablaze when she angered Amy Winehouse fans by tweeting a pic of a woman resembling the late singer.

Keri wrote, "Gasp! Amy Winehouse resurrected to party w/me!!! (seriously, uncanny resemblance)" and came under attack by followers calling her "insensitive" and "offensive."

In response, Keri tweeted a prompt 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. I had no ill intent, but I understand how it appears insensitive… my bad twitterville. For real," Keri wrote.

Amy Winehouse, whose funeral is today in North London, died of unknown causes in her home on Saturday.
