Justin Timberlake sorry for 'distasteful' wedding video
Justin Timberlake is "deeply sorry" for a "distasteful" wedding video that seemed to mock homeless people.
The video, which surfaced online erlier this week, was made by the pop star's friends and shows three homeless people from Los Angeles sending well wishes for his wedding.
In an open letter posted on his website, the pop star said he was not involved in the creation of the video and that it did not screened during his recent wedding to actress Jessica Biel.
"I am deeply sorry to anyone who was offended by the video," he wrote. "It was something that I was not made aware of. But, I do understand the reaction and, by association, I am holding myself accountable."
Although Timberlake said he is not defending the video, he insisted that his friends never intended to mock the less fortunate.
"My friends are good people," he wrote. "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.
"I think we can all agree that it was distasteful," he added. "You can bet your ass that I'm having my friend do at least 100 hours of community service... Boom."
