Ha Ha, Homeless People!

A photo of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel

That’s what Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel did at their wedding over the weekend they hung out in Italy, they had their wedding that cost 6.5 million dollars, and they went “ha ha, homeless people!”

Here’s a clip from a video that one of Justin’s close friends, Justin Huchel (a real estate agent, no less), put together to show at the wedding:

The actual video is about eight and a half minutes long, and, as you can see, features a variety of homeless people explaining why they just couldn’t make it out to Italy. Charming, right? “Let us sip on our fancy wines and liquors and dine on our thousand dollar meals whilst the less fortunate entertain us!” What assholes.

No, really, this dude, Justin Timberlake’s friend, is a real asshole. Gawker originally posted the clip, and here’s how they described the rest of the video:

“Greetings from Your Hollywood Friends Who Just Couldn’t Make It,” reads the opening title card, “Featuring Sid, Chuck, Robert, and More!” Sid, Chuck, Robert, and others appear to be penniless and living on the street. Some of them are obviously intoxicated, mentally ill, or both, and at least one of them is entirely incapable of speaking.

“Justin and Jessica, I haven’t seen you for a long time,” one toothless man tells the camera. “I hope the wedding goes fine for you. My gift is in the mail.”

A male off-camera voice, apparently Huchel’s, asks the man when he last saw Timberlake and Biel, adding, “Did you and Jessica mess around?”

At one point, after commentary from an apparently transexual man, Timberlake’s “SexyBack” is played in the background.

Another glassy-eyed apparently homeless man woozily tells the camera, in a lengthy and rambling monologue, “Jeez I miss you so much. I wish I could be there.” (“There” being the $1,000-plus a night Italian resort hanging out with guests like Jimmy Fallon and Andy Samberg. “Here” being behind what looks like a McDonald’s.) Others mumble unintelligibly in response to questions about when they last hung out with Timberlake and Biel. When one shirtless man says he saw them at the L.A. Coliseum, the male voice asks, “were you performing with them?”

That really drives it home doesn’t it? I’m somehow always surprised by the ability some humans have to be such utter pricks.

  • Wow… Just… wow. What an arsehole. What a fucking scumbag, how can you laugh like that at people in such need? And mock a trans person like that? Ugh.

    • Right?! This pissed me off on so, so many levels. It’s like those assholes who take pictures of HAR HAR FAT PEOPLE or HAR HAR LOOK AT THIS GUY’S SKIN in public places and then post them on Facebook.

      • On the one hand, I *do* think that this video crossed over into the exploitative zone, especially since it’s difficult to tell what the mental state of these homeless people was. On the other hand, they *did* agree to participate, and they *did* get paid for it (according to one of the PM links). I’m not saying I would ever do anything like this, because it’s just in bad taste, but doesn’t the choosing-to-participate and getting-paid-for-it aspect make it a little bit different from the HAR HAR FAT PEOPLE pictures?

  • If this were my wedding, I would be SO uncomfortable. Like . . . want to crawl out of my skin uncomfortable.
