Amy Winehouse website, hacked

Poor Amy Winehouse.

First, the "Rehab" singer blows her highly vaunted comeback performance in Serbia last week after purportedly getting clean and sober. Now she's being assailed as a "white devil." Won't someone give her a break?

A collective of hackers dubbing themselves SwagSec broke into the singer's website and vandalized the front door with some incendiary scribblings.

So what did they want?

Posting a link back to their Twitter page, the group proclaimed, "We are here to take back the Internet from the white devil. We are a team of homosexual Negroes and proud of it. Swagggg."

In another Twitter post, SwagSec called Winehouse a "racist crackhead devil b-tch."

While the Grammy winner has earned herself a legion of haters in recent years with her self-destructive, drug-addled behavior, their allegation of racism isn't entirely unjustified. In 2008, the UK's News of the World tabloid published a video filmed by her then-hubby Blake Fielder-Civil of Winehouse in a drugged out haze a year earlier singing a racist song.

Apparently, hackers have long memories.

Winehouse's camp declined to comment on SwagSec's handiwork which, as of press time, is still up.
