Justin Timberlake is taking full responsibility for a video of some homeless people (Eddie, as seen in the above photo) that was taped for his wedding reception. His pal Justin Huchel taped the footage of homeless people and transvestites in the Los Angeles area who offered up their wedding wishes for the happy couple.
Justin has since apologized for the video, calling it “silly” and “unsavory”. On his official website, he wrote an entire note of apology, taking responsibility for the video — even though he didn’t have anything to do with it.
As it pertains to this silly, unsavory video that was made as a joke and not in any way in mockery:
I had no knowledge of its existence. I had absolutely ZERO contribution to it.
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. More so, I think it was made as a joke on me not having that many friends attending my own wedding (which IS kind of funny if you think about it).
Like many silly rumors that I have been made aware of about the week: It was NOT shown at my wedding.
I think we can all agree that it was distasteful, even though that was not its intention.
What did you think of the video?
