Homeless Man Featured in Justin Timberlake's Wedding Video Wants More Than Apology
Justin Timberlake probably thought the bad press over a tasteless video meant to be shown at his wedding was over.
Not when Gloria Allred is involved.
The famed civil rights attorney has teamed up with "Eddie," the homeless man mocked in the video in question, to demand more from the pop star than just a written apology. He wants a face-to-face meeting with the "Trouble with the Curve" star.
Flanked by civil rights lawyer Gloria Allred, Eddie said he never expected to be a punch line for the rich and famous when he uttered some generic well wishes into a camera in exchange for a "bowl of soup."
He said Timberlake's apology for the video posted on his website Oct. 26 didn't go far enough.
The singer's open letter was directed at family, friends and fans — not the people the video hurt the most, he said.
