My Friends are "knuckleheads"- Justin Timberlake Apologises for Offensive Video
Justin Timberlake has expressed his distaste regarding the video made by a friend of his for the singer's wedding which exploited the homeless.
The wedding between Justin Timberlake and bride Jessica Biel should have been one of utter, uninterrupted joy and celebration. However, the release of a video from one of the newly-wed's friends, made to celebrate the nuptials, has become a point of sharp distaste and disgust among the public. In response to the video and the outrage expressed regarding it, Timberlake has released an 'open letter' of apology on his website.
"I'd like to start off by saying that I don't live my life making fun of people... Especially, those who are less fortunate or those in need." He said, "I grew up with a family and community that instilled ideals in me like hard work, honesty and empathy... Growing up in Tennessee, I was always taught that we as people, no matter what your race, sex, or stature may be, are equal. As it pertains to this silly, unsavoury 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." And ending the letter, he said, "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."
Furthering the apology, he added a post script, "You can bet... that I'm having my friend do at least 100 hours of community service... Boom."
