Amy Winehouse apologises for racist video

'I'm the least racist person going' she says

Amy Winehouse apologised today (June 9) for singing a racist slur-filled song, which was captured on video by her husband Blake Fielder-Civil.

The singer reportedly told paparazzi outside her London home today that she was sorry, reports the Associated Press. She also denied that her singing of the song made her a racist.

“I don’t want to play anything down, but I’m the least racist person going,” Winehouse said.

The video, which appears to have been filmed quite some time ago, appeared on The News Of The World this weekend. It also shows the singer in a drug den surrounded by drug-taking paraphernalia.

Meanwhile, the troubled singer’s husband admitted committing assault and perverting the course of justice in London today (June 9), as previously reported.
