Well, I could be wrong because I'm not familiar with WP but don't you have to use the value passed to the Function?

<?php
function my_plugin_get_profile($my_plugin_username) {
$json_feed_url = 'http://myapi.net/' . $my_plugin_username . '.json';
$args = array( 'timeout' => 120);

$json_feed = wp_remote_get( $json_feed_url, $args );

  return $json_feed;




}
?>

Thanks for your help! I revised it and now it working! I forgot to use the value passed the function thats why!
