The Worst Wedding Gift Ever - October 23, 2012
This is a blind riddle.
When Duana got married in July we all got together to surprise her and produce a video of us, her friends, re-enacting her favourite scene from Sister Act 2. When this celebrity couple got married, a few members of their friends and family produced a video too, intending to play it at the wedding. They took to the streets, interviewing homeless people and various other citizens who can barely afford pasta let alone a vacation, to express how sorry they were not to be able to make it to the wedding and offer their well wishes.
This was supposed to be... funny?
Again, let’s stress that the two famous people involved here did not conceive of this idea. And I don’t know yet if it was actually broadcast at the event. Hopefully their family and friends realised it was a dick move at best, and profoundly offensive and disgusting overall. Hopefully they realised they were being assholes, walking around making fun of those who are suffering and hungry. Hopefully they buried it and made a contribution for good, in honour of the happy couple, instead of using the homeless to entertain, while everyone else sipped champagne and ate olives. Hopefully.
Because who needs friends like that? Who needs family like that? Do you believe that the people you spend time with you reflect who you are? And if so, what does that say about these two stars?
This is not about Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds.
Then here is Lainey's update:
Justin Timberlake's Homeless Wedding Gift - October 24, 2012
It’s Pippy Day on LaineyGossip.com! Just what he wanted!
I posted a blind riddle yesterday -- click here if you missed it. Gawker has the video. The video is exactly how I described it. Homeless people taped AS A JOKE wishing Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel a happy wedding...you know, because they couldn’t make it.
The video was produced by Justin Huchel who is also close to Rachael Yarbrough who is Pippy’s cousin and apparently his personal assistant.
ALL CLASS, motherf-ckers. That is ALL CLASS.
I noted in the blind that I wasn’t sure if the video ended up getting played at the wedding.
Gawker confirms that it was.
They laughed at a disadvantaged segment of society to celebrate their marriage.
Isn’t it SO FUNNY to see people struggling and without teeth and probably smelly and definitely hungry presented as the butt of the joke?
Don’t you want to toast to that?
Of course Huchel is now trying to save JT’s ass. His lawyer sent a letter to Gawker threatening a lawsuit and clarifying that:
"Mr. Huchel made [the] video to be used and exhibited privately at Justin Timberlake's wedding as a private joke without Mr. Timberlake's knowledge."
I’m willing to believe that JT had no idea about the video. But I’m not sure he would have been offended by the video -- which is the ONLY APPROPRIATE reaction. And here’s the thing ...
Wouldn’t your friend and YOUR COUSIN who also works for you know you well enough not to show something so disgusting if you wouldn’t appreciate it? Is Justin Huchel, one of JT’s closest confidantes, so off base about his boy that he totally miscalculated on his own? Or... did Justin Huchel know exactly what to do to amuse his friend?
What a pleasant way to kick off a marriage, non?
By sh-tting on homeless people, kicking down those less fortunate, as you jump up and down on your bride’s head on the cover of a magazine during your SIX MILLION DOLLAR wedding.
Click here to watch the video -- over 8 minutes of entertainment at the expense of the poor.
As I said, just pointless and lame! Which is typical of Justin T. Let's move on and stop talking about them now, okay?
