Happy wishes from the homeless

Posted by: | November 5, 2012 | No Comment |

Unless you’ve been hanging out under a very dark rock, you know by now that megastars Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel wed in Italy at the end of last month. Their super-secret vow exchange turned out to be one of the most highly publicized events of the season. However, it wasn’t just the odd choice of color for Mrs. Timberlake’s dress (pink) that was the talk of the celebrity presses. Instead, the gossip seemed to be about an even odder gift they received…a gag video of homeless Los Angeles well-wishers bidding the couple a happy wedding.

“Justin and Jessica, I haven’t seen you for a long time . . . I hope the wedding goes fine for you,” says a toothless man on the street. “My gift is in the mail.” The peculiar video was a joke gift from Justin’s longtime friend, Justin Huchl, who insists the gift was “just a joke.”

While Timberlake is a recurring guest on Saturday Night Live, many fans are questioning the taste level of having homeless people wish the couple (who’s net worth is well into the millions) a nice event.

“I had no knowledge of its existence. I had absolutely ZERO contribution to it,” said Timberlake in a public apology. “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.”

While he defends his innocence, Timberlake ended up holding himself accountable stating that he does “understand the reaction.” Not to worry though. It doesn’t look like he’s letting Huchel get away with a clean slate either.

“You can bet your ass that I’m having my friend do at least 100 hours of community service,” said Timberlake.
