Did Akon Evade Ebola At His Congo Concert By Crowd Surfing In A Plastic Bubble? Get The Truth HERE!

Filed under: Music MinuteAkonDiploHealthGIFs

no title

Was Akon refusing to touch Congo concertgoers?

The singer has just been accused over the past couple days of trying to protect himself from ebola by performing in a giant plastic bubble in the Democratic Republic of Congo on September 21st.

Was he really that afraid of the vicious virus?

Um, probably not.

Sure, Akon jumped around in a plastic bubble, but those giant hamster balls have been around for years! You may have seen them at the concerts of The Flaming Lips, Diplo, and Peter Gabriel.

The GIF of Akon crowd surfing in one (above) is actually from before the ebola scare - WAY back in 2010!

What's more, Akon wasn't even in the bubble the whole time! He was touching audience members like any other concert! Check out the video proof (below)!

Ben Affleck Testifies Before Congress On Violence In Africa! See Batman Try To Save Gotham, Err, The Congo HERE!

Filed under: Ben AffleckPolitikInspirationViolence

Jennifer Garner's gorgeous husband just went to Washington and you'll never believe why!!

Batman vs. Superman star Ben Affleck visited Capitol Hill on Wednesday and testified before the Senate's Committee on Foreign Relations!

No, seriously!!!

The A-list actor is an expert on the travesties occuring in the Congo and he advised a whole room full of senators, including former Presidential candidate John McCain, who were genuinely grateful for his expertise!!

Curious what Ben had to offer? Ch-ch-check out his whole testimony (above)!

Is he the world's best samaritan or if this is still just part of Ben's continued penance for starring in Gigli? We'll probably never know, but we're nevertheless grateful for his contribution because the problems in that region of the world are SERIOUS!

Over five million people have been killed there since civil war broke out in the late '90s and Ben's non-profit advocacy group, the Eastern Congo Initiative, attempts to curb some of that violence.

Keep up the inspirational work, Mr. Affleck!
