Oh dear. No doubt this is going to really overshadow all the good work he has been doing.

Last night, the co-founder of "Kony 2012," Jason Russell, was arrested by the San Diego police for allegedly being drunk and masturbating in public.

According to the cops, Jason was apprehended when the police received several phone calls from residents complaining about a man in various stages of undress, running through traffic and screaming. When the police arrive, Jason was in his underwear and masturbating, after presumably vandalizing several cars. It was clear to the arresting officers that Jason was "on something," so he was immediately taken in. Thankfully, Jason was seemingly "cooperative" with the police once they arrived, so he didn't make matters worse by resisting arrest.

Not good, Jason. Not only does this tarnish your reputation, but think of your two kids! How embarrassed are they going to be that their father went from hero and zero in like, a week! Sad!

Do U think this will hurt his campaign? Or is his work too important to be overshadowed by this?

UPDATE!

Here's what Invisible Children's CEO Ben Keesey had to say:

“Jason 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.”

LOLz, right!

How do U think this is going to impact the group??

    exhaustion, dehydration, malnutrition = METH HEAD !



  2. 2

    WOW. how hard they fall…

    I'm actually surprised he wasn't found outside a gay bar…he sets my gaydar off big time

    CC



  3. 3

    kONY2012 Is all a big money scheme, fuck these guys



  4. 4

    Clearly a total masturbation accident, which left him exhausted and dehydrated.
    Perhaps smoking weed beforehand left him malnurished. BHahahaha! What a statement!



  5. 5

    You'd better go back to tee.e.m.zee.ee for updates.



  6. 6

    Exhaustion, dehydration, personal health issue? Why don't they just say what everyone knows and admit that his time in the spotlight went to his head and he has been partying like a madman?



  7. 7

    He was mastubating in public because he's gay. No straight man would ever do that. I know he's got a kid and all, but I'm pretty sure he's gay if you watch any of his interviews



  8. 8

    Move on. Who cares.



  9. 9

    PEOPLE NEED TO BE VERY CAREFUL OF THIS GROUP AND DO THEIR RESEARCH-before they get taken in and emotionally raped by them. The cause is a good one, however this group refuses to release their financial records and has been under scrutiny for what they really do with the money. Make your own decisions, but do your research first before you get caught up.



  10. 10

    was he thinking of women or men?



  11. 11

    No surprise here. The evangelical Christians are always fucking nuts.



  12. 12

    Wow, this Ben person deserves to be in the book of world records as the most shameless person in the world.



  13. 13

    Lol, I knew this was all a big scheme! If I made millions by fooling people. I would get drunk and rock out with my cock out



  14. 14

    Perez- you said you were going to stop bullying. This should include mental health issues. Please, look up mania, psychosis, bipolar disorder, etc and consider changing your tone. Even if we expect people to conform to a certain level of dignity, you would be surprised what kind of toll a psychotic episode can take on a person in terms of unbidden, bizarre behavior. As someone who suffers from bipolar disorder, your comment "LOLz right" is extremely hurtful to me on a personal level. You say that even after you've posted a very detailed, comprehensible explanation from the CEO that this man's mental health has been compromised after a HUGE rush of stress, fame and VERY harsh criticisms. Of all people, you should set an example of how the public reacts to mental illness and, if it's the case here or in any instance of clearly out-of-control behavior, substance abuse. 1 in 4 Americans suffer from mental illness. Stop the stigma.

    Re: rosebud99 – BINGO! I'm not going to say that the STOP KONY movement is bogus, because I know people who do humanitarian work in Uganda and it isn't, BUT capturing this war criminal is not as simple as this organization is making it seem either. And while Jason has thrusted himself into the spotlight, he has also had to deal with a lot of criticism and I am not sure he was ready for that. Best of luck to the organization, and I hope Jason gets his shit together.



  16. 16

    Masturbating in public? Who does that? Lots of homeless cracked out drunk people in the city where I live and never seen one do that! Seriuosly that is a problem!



  17. 17

    omg hahahaha what a f.a.i.l



  18. 18

    ok, this is bothering me. Jason is a co-founder of "Invisible Children", not Kony 2012. Kony 2012 is a campaign created by Invisible Children.



  19. 19

    A con-artist arrested. Not surprised.



  20. 20

    The campaign actually did more harm in Uganda then it did good. They are FURIOUS over there. That psycho Kony was finally out of mind and out of sight. And because of that campaign he's popular among extremists again! Us people of the west can easilly fall in those "we care let's pretend to do something" trap without ever really thinikng or considering if the people concerned want it to happen.

    ok i know he's having some sort of emotional or mental breakdown, however i still find him strangely attractive. he's obviously a closeted evangelical bible basher, but…….i still would



  22. 22

    Theres a small video of it.

    Its in broad daylight on the side of a busy street (on a corner)

    He was slamming his fists into the ground and screaming.
    oh lulz!



  23. 23

    consider the reputation…tarnished.

    Re: themundane – MINE TOO!!! but like all the way to the sky!! and he has te cutest, smartest kid I ve ever seen..

    Hopefully he will sit him down and explain what daddy did.. just like he sit him down to explain how he stops "the bad guys".



  25. 25

    Why do people think capturing kony is a bad thing? Sure he is not as active as he was a few years ago and is no longer in Uganda, but the LRA is still kidnapping and looting. Kony needs to pay for what he has done in the past, much like nazis and the Nuremberg trials. Kony 2012 will try to succeed in bringing that about, and if that is successful, there is no negatives. It's not about pretending to do something, it's about the people who don't know how to help, invisible children and other organizations give us the opportunity to do that.



  26. 26

    He's not doing a good thing. He's asking for donations so he can send 30% to a country to help find a guy that isn't even in that country. If people want to donate to Uganda to help the kids, then sure do it, but they should definitely donate elsewhere. The problem with that video, is theres so much misleading information and people should have been wanting Kony captured years ago, not wait 26 years then say, Kony2012? GOOD IDEA! Now lets care about whats going in the world. Why don't we wait another 10 years then do Syria as the next inspiration for our youth to "Get involved."

    My brain would not allow me to process this as true when I read it on MSNBC because it is just too perfect!! I literally cackled.

    Re: Lauren77 – Oh SHUT UP. I'm an LPC and even I call bullshit on playing the mental health card for this ass.

    Re: Lauren77 – His being put on a 5150 is simply a legal move by his lawyers so that he avoids jail. It's actually insulting to the mental health community to automatically label his behaviors as falling under the umbrella of those commonly expressed by individuals with mental health problems. As someone who lives with Manic Depression you should know more than anyone else that a manic episode, even in its most extreme manifestations is not characterized by the behaviors described here. I'm not saying that he was/is not in the middle of a manic episode, or as you termed it - a "pyschotic episode" (which is not at all the same thing) I'm just saying that it is not as clear cut as you implied. I completely agree with the sentiment you expressed but I do not feel it is a justified argument for this particular individual.

    Re: MEMEME4 – I agree- its very scary that he has gotten all these high powered celebritys on his bandwagon….don't they have people who check this stuff out????



  32. 32

    Re: Lauren77 – you kinda sound like a fucking idiot, but then again i can't blame you—1 out of 4 americans have been bought in to the scam of psychiatry, drugging the population for minor personality defects labeled as "mental disorders." the fact is some people are fuckin crazy and there's nothing wrong with laughing at it. what's more disgraceful is people like you who probably go around telling all your friends to refill their zoloft prescription and if that doesn't work, add another pill to the list.



  33. 33

    This guy is a failed actor that despertally wanted to be rich and famous. Then he hit the mega jackpot by making that Kony thing that went viral. He did not make that video out of the kindness of his own heart. He exploited Kony, exploited that war torn country for his own gain.



  34. 34

    Joseph Kony is a horrible person and should be dealt with in some concrete way. Invisible Children, however, is a shady organization. Try to find any financial disclosure pertaining to the use of donations. What percentage of your dollar goes to the actual cause and not overhead?



  35. 35

    Re: TEXASGIRL 63 – Actually, their financial statements have been released. They spend more money on flashy advertising than helping the children of Uganda. There are FAR better ways to help Africa than give this group $30 for a box of stickers and a bracelet.
    Re: Lauren77 – Exactly. He copy and pasted this story from an article that goes on to discuss this being a mental health problem - not caused by drugs or alcohol - yet, Perez left that part out. The police didn't arrest him and, instead, turned him over to the hospital because he was clearly mentally unwell. If this was caused by drugs or alcohol, he would have been arrested.



  36. 36

    Re: Lauren77 – Don't forget when Perez posted a video that he claimed to be funny, yet it showed a mentally ill man having a manic episode. It was sad and appalling that the video was posted on this site. He's a bully. He hasn't changed.



  37. 37

    i think he was slipped a little somethin somethin to discredit him



  38. 38

    He'll feel better now that he's been forced out of the closet, but I feel sorry for his wife and kids.
    Whaddya think his cock[hah!]tail was that left him 'exhausted, dehydrated' and publically masturbating, coke + E + bipolar? I don't think it will 'just' be meth.



  39. 39

    no actual video Perez, I am disappointed



  40. 40

    YOU need to get your facts straight. What have you done to better this world? Exactly, feed the minds of ignorant people with gossip. For a man who has spoken out so adamantly against bullying, you sure do like to put your foot in your mouth. Get a real job Perez, a real job.
