Timberlake ‘deeply sorry’ for ‘distasteful’ video

3:45PM EDT October 26. 2012 – Justin Timberlake says he’s “deeply sorry” for the “distasteful,” “unsavory” and “silly” video that went viral this week — in which homeless people in Hollywood congratulate the singer and new wife Jessica Biel. In a rare open letter posted to his website, Timberlake calls the 8-minute clip, shot by his friends — “good people” — 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.” That said, he writes, “I think we can all agree that it was distasteful. “I am deeply sorry to anyone who was offended by the video,” he adds. The newlywed also insists he knew nothing about it: “I had absolutely ZERO contribution to it,” and that, contrary to reports, it was not shown at his wedding. “But, I do understand the reaction and, by association, I am holding myself accountable.” And the friend who filmed it: “You can bet your (vulgarity) that I’m having my friend do at least 100 hours of community service… Boom.”
