In a bizarre twist this morning, the “Kony 2012” phenomenon, in my opinion, just got BETTER.
Recently, you may have watched the viral video created by the non-profit, Invisible Children, which aims to create a public awareness about Ugandan militia leader Joseph Kony. The video went viral, like Jersey Shore crabs, and has reached millions of viewers around the world in a mere few weeks. In spite of all the public attention, however, the video has received much criticism due to alleged misstated facts.
Anyways, the video creator/do me, Jason Russell, took too much of the criticism to heart and went CRAZY (Brit-Brit circa 2007 style). Last Thursday afternoon he was taken into police custody after running around a San Diego street completely naked and making lewd gestures.
D-Nast is VERY disappointed he wasn’t in San Diego at the time, because boy looks like he’s packing some heat. Yum.
But the fun is just beginning, folks. Let the PR aftermath begin! According to Invisible Children’s publicist,
“Jason Russell was
unfortunatelyhilariously hospitalized yesterday suffering from exhaustion, dehydration and malnutritiona case of the cray-crays… He is now receiving medical care and is focused on getting better. The past two weeks have taken a severe emotional toll on all of us, Jason especially, and that toll manifested itself in an unfortunatea delicious dong-wielding incident yesterday.”
