The man who helped raise awareness of the brutality of Uganda’s Joseph Kony in a viral video called KONY 2012 , Jason Russell, was arrested in San Diego last Friday according to US News. He was caught allegedly masturbating in public and acting bizarre and erratic.
A new video just surfaced of Jason Russell, naked and yelling profanities, running back and forth in a street corner.
Friends and family say that Jason was admitted to the hospital for psychiatric evaluation and that he “did some irrational things brought on by extreme exhaustion and dehydration“.
But I believe in what his wife said in an interview after the incident:
“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.”
