Kony 2012 filmmaker arrested for... masturbating in public

Post by KarmaChameleon on Sat Mar 17, 2012 8:41 am



Jason Russell, the filmmaker behind the mega-viral "Kony 2012"
documentary, was arrested in San Diego on Thursday night, NBC reported,
citing the San Diego Police Department.

Russell, 33, "was taken into custody after he was found masturbating in
public, vandalizing cars and possibly under the influence of something,"
NBC's San Diego affiliate reported, citing San Diego Police Department
spokeswoman Lt. Andra Brown.

The San Diego Police Department's Brown did not immediately return two messages left Friday from Yahoo News.

The co-founder of the San Diego-based advocacy group Invisible Children
was detained on San Diego's Pacific Beach "acting very strange" the NBC
report said.

Russell's 30-minute documentary on Ugandan guerrilla leader Joseph Kony
and the Lord's Resistance Army became a surprise mega viral hit,
receiving over 80 million viewers since its release last week. But the
film has also kicked up a backlash of criticism against the group,
ranging from how Invisible Children spends its finances to whether it
cut corners with the facts in order to create a more compelling film
about a more than two-decade old Central African conflict.

But Invisible Children has also found many prominent defenders of its
work, from members of Congress to President Barack Obama, who sent 100
U.S. special forces to Uganda last fall to search for Kony.

"I think that these guys are getting mercilessly picked apart by a bunch
of intellectual elites who spend their days tweeting but never
trending," Cameron Hudson, former Bush White House Africa hand, told
Yahoo News last week. "If their aim is to raise awareness, they have
done that in spades."

XD

nice.
