As the entire world knows, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel were married recently. And, it didn’t go off without a little scandal.
Gawker broke the news that a video was shown at the wedding, which depicted down-and-out people (i.e. the homeless) explaining to Justin and Jessica why they couldn’t make their nuptials. Timberlake’s friend, Justin Huchel, who asked transexuals and homeless people on the streets of Los Angeles to wish Timberlake and Biel a happy marriage, as if they were old friends.
Since Timberlake’s wedding was a $6.5 million extravaganza of overindulgence, the video of poor people who “couldn’t make the wedding” was meant to be humorous – with the joke being that these were some of Timberlake’s friends.
Although Huchel’s lawyer made Gawker remove the video, sending them a strongly worded letter arguing that the video was “used and exhibited privately at Justin Timberlake’s wedding as a private joke without Mr. Timberlake’s knowledge,” today, Timberlake posted an open letter on his website apologizing for the lapse in judgement, (aka PR nightmare).
Timberlake wrote, “I want to say that, on behalf of my friends, family, and associative knuckleheads, I am deeply sorry to anyone who was offended by the video. Again, it was something that I was not made aware of. But, I do understand the reaction and, by association, I am holding myself accountable.”
He ended with, “P.S. You can bet your ass that I’m having my friend do at least 100 hours of community service… Boom.”
