Justin Timberlake apologizes for wedding video mocking homelessBy Kelsey Fowler | October 29th, 2012 | No Comments »
After tying the knot with Jessica Biel in Italy last week, it was time for Justin Timberlake to do damage control in addressing a controversial video that was rumored to have been shown at the ceremony.
The video shows homeless people sending well-wishes to the couple. Timberlake recently published an open letter on his website to help “clear the air.” He denies that the video, made by a friend, was ever shown at the wedding, and apologizes for its content.
Grammar issues aside, (who can really blame the man, he’s on a honeymoon with Jessica Biel) Timberlake insists that he “had no knowledge of its existence” in the letter, and had “ZERO contribution to it.”
Timberlake said that his “knucklehead” friends who were responsible had a lapse in judgement, and a distasteful one at that. While the lavish wedding was most likely the target, the video comes across as making fun of the L.A. homeless population. One toothless man says, “Justin, Jessica. I haven’t seen you all in a long time, my gift is in the mail.”
Timberlake’s letter concludes: “P.S. You can bet your ass that I’m having my friend do at least 100 hours of community service… Boom.”
