    From our "Tasteless" file: Singer Keri Hilson has profusely apologized after sparking outrage by posting a picture online of her partying with an Amy Winehouse lookalike just hours before the British star's funeral on Tuesday! Yikes. Keri, what the hell were you thinking? Or weren't you?

    While the likes of M.I.A. and Russell Brand have created touching tributes to the late, great "Rehab" singer, Hilson was criticized for uploading a photo of herself with a Wino lookalike, writing on Twitter that the dead star had been "resurrected." Ouch! Keri, come on! You are classier than this!

    Hilson posted this tweet: "*gasp* Amy Winehouse resurrected to party w/ (with) me!!! (seriously, uncanny resemblance)."

    The post and photo were attacked and Hilson then posted an apology about an hour later. She wrote: "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."

    Okay, that apology does sound sincere.

    What do you think of Keri Hilson's apology? Real or forced?
