Justin Timberlake Apologizes for "Distasteful" Wedding Video

by at . Comments

Justin Timberlake has posted an open letter on his website to both apologize for a wedding video that made the rounds on the Internet this week, and also to clarify a few points regarding it.

The video in question depicts homeless people wishing Justin and his new bride, Jessica Biel, well on their nuptials - and many have reacted harshly to the mockery of the subjects on film.

"I think we can all agree that it was distasteful," Timberlake writes, adding: "I was always taught that we as people, no matter what your race, sex, or stature may be, are equal."

JT goes on to say:

  • The video was NOT actually shown at the wedding.
  • He had "ZERO" contribution to it.
  • His friends behind it are "good people" who simply showed a "lapse in judgment" in this case.

Concludes the artist:

"I do understand the reaction and, by association, I am holding myself accountable.

"Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share my thoughts. It really is a blessing to be able to speak directly to my true fans so that you can know exactly where I stand."

His "friend" has mocked terribly unfortunate people
by paying that poor man a measly $40. If Mr.
Timberlake really cares, let him donate some real
money to a homeless shelter. He just spent millions on his wedding!

How do you know he doesn't? And it's his friend that posted the video that should help the homeless, he's the one who committed the tasteless act.
