Justin Timberlake apologized for a “distasteful” wedding video reportedly produced by his friend Justin Huchel, which made fun of homeless people.
The video, initially posted on the Gawker.com, featured Los Angeles vagrants, street musicians and homeless people sending wishes to Timberlake and Jessica Biel for their recent wedding, reports RawStory.com.
A caption at the end of the video says: “Greetings from your Hollywood friends who just couldn’t make it,” followed by “Love Huch and Rachel.”
Timberlake posted an open letter on his website, in which he stated: “I had no knowledge of its existence. I had absolutely ZERO contribution to it. I think we can all agree that it was distasteful, even though that was not it’s intention."
“I don’t live my life making fun of people (unless, of course, I’m making fun of myself on [TV comedy show Saturday Night Live] … Especially, those who are less fortunate or those in need. My friends are good people. This was clearly a lapse in judgment which I’m sure no one who is reading this is exempt from. But, I don’t believe it was made to be insensitive."
“On behalf of my friends, family, and associative knuckleheads, I am deeply sorry to anyone who was offended by the video.”
However, his "friends"who actually made the offensive video did not issue an apology.
