KONY 2012: THE NAKED MELTDOWN From Up Close
How embarrassing for Oprah Winfrey, Rihanna and Celebrities who hopped on the KONY 2012 bandwagon without even vetting it first. As soon as these high-powered celebs endorsed the Jason Russell-directed KONY 2012 video, it went viral garnering over 80 million views online. But within minutes, viewers began criticizing the video, which turned out to be nothing more than a propaganda film designed to push the agenda of Russell and his partners.
The criticism reached a fever pitch when Invisible Children — the movement behind KONY 2012 — came under fire for its shady fundraising. According to Russell’s wife, that’s when he snapped.
Last week, Russell stripped down to his speedo underwear and ran down a San Diego street screaming profanity and tossing his speedo underwear at passing motorists. His wife says it was the stress that caused Russell’s meltdown.
Russell was detained by San Diego police who transported him to a mental hospital for a psych evaluation. He’s still there. TMZ.com has the up-close, naked video of Russell’s rampage. I wonder what Oprah and Rihanna thinks about this video? Click the image above to watch.
