Amending any message to your git or bit-bucket is quite easy. Normally sometime, a developer need to modify the last committed message in git/bit-bucket. Git command is providing easy commands to achieve this. Follow the below steps with attached screen shot and you can do this.

Just pull your working branch , where  you want to modify the last commit. But, make sure you want to modify your last commit for the working branch.I have bit-bucket in this example post.

Then use the below command to push your changes.
git push -f  origin master

Example , as per the attached screenshot. I have used the command prompt for this example. In the below example , I have updated the new message "Amending new message". Then, push  (used -means --force) the message to git/bit-bucket. Use the below screenshot as reference.
