KONY 2012 co-founder JASON RUSSELL has been detained for allegedly being drunk and lewd in public!
Well, there goes many of their supporters! Wonder what his son thinks of that?
Jason Russell, the filmmaker behind the Invisible Children viral video, was allegedly detained in San Diego after being found wearing only his underwear while masturbating and vandalizing cars Thursday Morning. Russell‘s video, which has gained the support of celebrities such as Rihanna, Justin Bieber, P.Diddy, Kim Kardashian and Oprah, aimed to make Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony and his wicked ways of abducting thousands of children for years more well known in America so the administration would finally eradicate him.
Now that the supposed altruist of 9 years is coming off as just one of society’s scums, what will happen to the campaign that scared and moved millions of people via YouTube?
Ben Keesey, CEO of the non-profit Invisible Children, tells NBC7:
“[Russell was] unfortunately hospitalized yesterday suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition. 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 unfortunate incident yesterday.”
“Jason‘s passion and his work have done so much to help so many and we are devastated to see him dealing with this personal health issue. We will always love and support Jason, and we ask that you give his entire family privacy during this difficult time.”
