Congressman Apologizes For Insensitive Amy Winehouse TweetMargaret Hartmann7/26/11 9:19pmFiled to: so sorryCongressman apologizes amy winehouse tweetCelebrityAppic46EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkCongressman Billy Long has apologized for using Amy Winehouse's death to snark about the debt ceiling yesterday, Tweeting:Advertisement"No one could reach #AmyWinehouse before it was too late. Can anyone reach Washington before it's too late? Both addicted - same fate???"Today Long issued this statement:Advertisement"Although I do believe spending 42 percent more than we take in is an addiction, I certainly meant no disrespect to Amy, her family or her fans. She was one of the few true artists to come along in a long time. What happened to her was a senseless tragedy and drawing an analogy wasn't meant to minimize the loss of life. If anyone took offense, I sincerely apologize."Someone needs to make a PSA to inform people that using troubling current events to promote your unrelated political cause, clothing line, or article on blowjobs is never a good idea.
