Justin Timberlake has issued an official apology for the spoof wedding video which was reportedly played at his wedding to Jessica Biel.
The open letter
The former N Sync star released the apology on his website and was quick to distance himself from the incident and the “knuckleheads” that made the video.
“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).
I think we can all agree that it was distasteful, even though that was not its intention.
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.”
The full version is available on the singer's website.
The video featured many individuals including a homeless man and a transvestite wishing the couple well on their journey into married life. The hoax video was supposed to imply that these were friends that could not make the wedding.
