KONY 2012 Director Picked Up By Police For Running Through The Streets Naked and Screaming
As you may have heard, Jason Russell, director of the KONY 2012 documentary, was picked up by San Diego Police last Thursday for reportedly running through the streets naked, screaming, allegedly masturbating, and having what appeared to be a mental breakdown.
Today, TMZ released captured footage of his naked meltdown, which appear to show him naked and pounding (with his hands guys) the pavement violently. It was also reported that he was cursing, rating to himself, and shouting about the devil. The video seemed to dispel any evidence of him masturbating.
Russell wasn’t arrested or charged, but he has been placed in psychiatric care. Russell’s family issued a statement concerning the incident:
“Jason has dedicated his adult life to this cause, leading up to KONY2012. We thought a few thousand people would see the film, but in less than a week, millions of people around the world saw it. While that attention was great for raising awareness about Joseph Kony, it also brought a lot of attention to Jason–and, because of how personal the film is, many of the attacks against it were also very personal, and Jason took them very hard. Let us say up front that Jason has never had a substance abuse or drinking problem, and this episode wasn’t caused by either of those things. But yes, he did some irrational things brought on by extreme exhaustion and dehydration. On our end–the focus remains only on his health, and protecting our family. We’ll take care of Jason, you take care of the work. The message of the film remains the same: stop at nothing.”
Wow son. Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for this Kony shit. This really ain’t a good look for your cause b. Whatever credibility you had is completely gone now. Yea mufuckas was hatin’ on you, I get that. But that’s what happens when you become famous – it’s part of the game. However, it does NOT mean that you go run around outside naked doing the helicopter wang dance b…no homo.
And how the fuck did this dude not get arrested or charged???? I had a homie get arrested before for jaywalking son – for fuckin’ jaywalking. If I get pulled over, I’m going straight to jail just for being in the car. But this crazy mufucka can run around butt ass naked swinging his peepee and yelling about the devil – in broad day light son – and not get arrested. WTF? At least you wasn’t actually masturbating in public son – there ain’t no bouncing back from that.
