UPDATE: “Kony 2012” director detained for masturbating in public

by | 18th, March 2012

A NEW, close-up video of Jason Russell’s nude meltdown in San Diego has been posted on TMZ. It shows the Kony 2012 campaigner pounding the ground, swearing and shouting about the devil.

Russell is being held in a psychiatric ward. His wife, Danica, has suggested he could not cope with the attention and pressure after his Kony 2012 video went viral and received widespread criticism.

The Ugandan government has weighed in now, too, uploading their own video on YouTube to contest claims made in Russell’s 29-minute long film. “The Kony 2012 campaign fails to make one crucial point clear. Joseph Kony is not in Uganda”, Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi says in the video.

JASON RUSSELL, the Christian hipster dad behind the “Kony 2012” viral video campaign, has reportedly been hospitalised after masturbating in public and smashing up cars in San Diego.

According to reports from NBC San Diego and TMZ, the 33-year-old co-founder of the Invisible Children charity was allegedly found running through traffic in speedo-like underwear, screaming and vandalising cars. He was possibly under the influence of something.

The CEO of Invisible Children, Ben Keesey, told TMZ that “Jason Russell was unfortunately hospitalized yesterday suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition”.

#Horny2012 and #Bony2012 promptly started trending on Twitter, with jibes about Russell, a married father-of two, making his own unborn children visible.

TMZ acquired footage which allegedly shows Jason Russell in the midst of his public breakdown at 11.30am local time on Thursday.

On Tuesday, Aug. 2, Kony, who rarely appears in public, told journalists he was committed to negotiating peace and denied he had committed war crimes. The Lord's Resistance Army is made up of the remnants of a rebellion that began in 1986. The rebels are accused of attacks on civilians and aid workers in neighboring Congo and Sudan, where they sought refuge as the Ugandan army gained an upper hand in northern Uganda. (AP Photo)
