The unfortunate death of Amy Winehouse this weekend has become headline news, her musical talent earned her many fans and a lot of people were sad to hear of her untimely passing.
Microsoft’s official twitter account unfortunately made a tweet that got a lot of the singers fans upset.
Remember Amy Winehouse by downloading the ground-breaking Back to Black over at Zune.
Now I’m certain this wasn’t meant in the way it was received however a lot of fans took offence to this and accused the company of trying to profit off the singers death.
Microsoft has since issued an apology;
Apologies to everyone if our earlier Amy Winehouse download tweet seemed purely commercially motivated. Far from the case, we assure you.
With Amy Ws passing, the world has lost a huge talent. Our thoughts are with Amy’s family and friends at this very sad time.
