While Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake’s wedding seemed like a fairy tale, things took a quick turn for the worst when a “gag” video was shown during the festivities.
The video, which features homeless people offering their best wishes because they couldn’t make the big day, was created by Timberlake’s friend Justin Huchel. With a portion of the video first published on Gawker, lawyers are now trying to get the clip taken down because viewers found it so offensive.
So to set things straight, Timberlake wrote an open letter apologizing if he offended anyone.
In the letter, he claims that he “was not made aware” of the video by adding, “I do understand the reaction and, by association, I am holding myself accountable.”
And while Timberlake defends his friends by saying they are “good people” , he also ensured that he will be making his friend do “100 hours of community service”. Check out the rest of his letter on Timberlake’s website.
Mistakes like these happen to the best of us, but I thought the video was in very bad taste. Perhaps the 100 community service hours will teach this friend a good lesson!
