Neil Patrick Harris apologizes for Amy Winehouse’s corpse set

Neil Patrick Harris has apologized for once serving a platter of meat designed to look like the rotting corpse of Amy Winehouse after a photo of the spread resurfaced online. Harris and her husband David Burtka gave the tray to the Halloween party in 2011, three months after Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning at the age of 27 (the disturbing image can be seen via News Feed).

In a statement shared with Weekly entertainment, Harris said: “A photo recently surfaced at a Halloween themed party my husband and I threw 11 years ago. It was regrettable then, and it remains regrettable today. Amy Winehouse was a once-in-a-generation talent, and I’m sorry for the hurt this image caused. »

Winehouse had publicly struggled with drug addiction and discussed his struggles with depression and eating disorders in interviews and through his music. At the time, as News Feed points out, audiences could be ruthless towards celebrities, and poking fun at their struggles was not uncommon.

At the time of the party, actor and producer Justin Mikita shared a photo of the meat platter – including prime rib, pulled pork and chicken sausage – via Twitter. It resurfaced last week after a writer whose tweets are now protected referred to the incident in a viral thread, saying, “Yeah, Neil Patrick Harris literally had a cake imitating Amy Winehouse’s corpse for Halloween shortly after his death. Since then, I hate this man.
