It was revealed a video made by Justin's friend, real estate agent Justin Hutchel, used actual homeless people in LA as comedy material by having them pretend to be acquaintances who couldn't make it to J.T.'s wedding. Even worse, these people weren't told they were part of a joke and only paid a pittance for their time. Mr. Timberlake had been remaining quiet on the scandal, but finally took to his website to clear the air.
In the letter to his fans, there were several "no's" that Justin wanted to get out there: He said the video "was NOT shown my wedding" contrary to some (ahem, our) reports. he had "no knowledge of its existence" and "absolutely ZERO contribution to it." That said, he still showed his character and decided to man up with a heartfelt apology. "I am deeply sorry to anyone who was offended by the video," he wrote. "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."
Justin also insisted that his real estate friend was not a bad person, but rather one who had a severe lapse in judgment. However, J.T. said he will make sure that the video wrong is ultimately righted. "P.S. You can bet your ass that I'm having my friend do at least 100 hours of community service...Boom."
