Jason Russell, Co-Founder of Invisible Children, Was Caught Masturbating in Public

Yup. Jason Russell, the man responsible for KONY 2012 and all the hype that surrounded the video, has been detained for some pretty interesting reasons. The San Diego Police Department says they received a call yesterday in regard to Mr. Russell allegedly masturbating in public, vandalizing cars and quite likely under the influence of…something. Since then, Invisible Children’s CEO Ben Keesey has released the following statement:

“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.”

I’m trying really hard to hold back from including my own commentary, but I have to ask — Do most people run around masturbating in public and destroying cars when they’re exhausted, dehydrated and malnourished? If so, the situation in Africa must be crazier than we all thought!
