Justin Timberlake is speaking out about a video which featured homeless people congratulating him and Jessica Biel on their nuptials, a video that he's calling "silly" and "unsavory" - and a video the star insists did not air at his wedding.

"I had no knowledge of its existence. I had absolutely ZERO contribution to it,"Justin said in a letter posted on his website, about the video made by his friends.

"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. But, 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 (which IS kind of funny if you think about it)," he wrote.

The star also squashed rumors that the video was played at the ceremony last week in Italy.

"It was NOT shown at my wedding," he continued. "I think we can all agree that it was distasteful, even though that was not its intention."

Adding, "Once again, in the world that we live in where everyone thinks that they know everything, I want to be very clear... I am NOT defending the video. I agree with the overall consensus. But, to use another "pants" analogy... It seems that these days, misconception gets around the world before the actual truth even wakes up and gets it's pants on... 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."
