Trouble in paradise?

Justin Timberlake jumps for joy as Jessica Biel beams brightly in her fantasy cotton candy pink Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown for their first official wedding photo, which also serve as the cover of the latest issue of People. And, while the newlyweds appear happy and carefree, their big day was quickly overshadowed with controversy when a video of homeless and transsexual people wishing the couple good luck surfaced on Gawker. Created by a wedding guest named Justin Huchel, it was rumored the video, which was titled “Greetings from Your Hollywood Friends Who Just Couldn’t Make It,” was shown at Jessica and Justin’s uber-expensive Italian wedding. Sadly, the video, which was supposed to serve as a gag gift, instead had fans crying foul.

In response to the backlash, Timberlake took to his website posting an open letter and apologizing for his friend’s actions. “I had no knowledge of its existence,” he wrote. “I had absolutely ZERO contribution to it. 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.”

Timberlake continued, stating that he was in no way justifying the video. “I want to be very clear… I am NOT defending the video,” he wrote. “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.”

In true pop star form, Timberlake ended his note with a bang by writing, “P.S. You can bet your ass that I’m having my friend do at least 100 hours of community service…Boom.”

Watch a snippet of the eight-minute video below. Do you think the video is funny or just plain foul?
