Rihanna

I Want to Help Expose KONY

as an Evil Bastard

3/8/2012 11:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rihanna has reached out to the Invisible Children organization
TMZ has learned ... Rihanna has reached out to the Invisible Children organization and has expressed an interest in creating a video to help raise awareness about an evil S.O.B. named Joseph Kony.

Kony is quickly becoming a household name ... thanks to a viral YouTube video that exposes the Ugandan warlord as the bloodthirsty leader of a child army and child prostitution ring.

In the YouTube video, producers beg for celebrity support to raise awareness and showed a picture of Rihanna, in an effort to get her involved.

TMZ has learned ... Rihanna saw the video and was so moved by the story ... that she called the organization this week and set up a meeting, hoping to create another video to keep the momentum alive.

We're told both sides are hoping to complete the project ASAP.

Stay tuned.

i think that the person saying that we don't know anything to talk about whats going on in Africa is right! but to sit there and say we dont' care, is ignorant! how can we care about something we dont know its even happening, this is not about black or white or politics its about being human! its about helping a child who is powerless againt an adutl with power! and you have to be a basterd to watch this and thing nothing more than to HELP in any which way its possible! unfortunatley there is a lot of organization who ask for money to help and get rich on the sympathy of people and thats why people loose faith, not because of the people in need but for the thieves that so call help! but this doesn't change the fact that WE as human should sit and see this monster do this to little boys and girls! and if he has left the area well guess what!!! he should be caught and face up and pay for raping, mutilating, killing the spirits of all these inocent children!

Could they stop with this already. I'm sure Rihanna doesn't even know what part of Africa Uganda is in let alone the propaganda surrounding this 'movement'! This whole spectacle is a creation by the USA to give them reason to raid yet another African country that has just recently discovered oil mines. Kony is not even in Northern Uganda any more...he was loong ago forced out by the Ugandan army. Please get your facts right people...don't be driven by propaganda. Stop Assad instead...he's still murdering innocent Syrians as the world watches on...including Hussein Obama!!

I am wondering how some of these celebs will now - react to Russell's latest VIDEO ? many just blindly join a campaign without finding out the truth & reall facts. Man a person like Russell sure used the video for his own gain. Some of these NGOS just exploit innocent lives. - shame on them http://www.tmz.com/2012/03/08/rihanna-joseph-kony-video/#.T2ShZiyM7nY.twitter via @TMZ

What a perfect example of the blind leading the blind.
Joseph Kony hasn't been seen in 5 years.
This whole media blitz is an excuse for the UN to fortify Africom, and control the area's populations and resources.
TMZ, you are promoting truly dangerous ideas without any real knowledge of what it is you are supporting.
Stay the **** out of politics. Leave it to those who know what they are doing, and go back to your piss-ass celebrity gossip where you can't do any damage.

This propaganda does not change, nor direct, my spiritual understanding that this "Kony 2012" is no more than money round up for th Jason Russell. He is truly a marketing protege. THINK ABOUT GOD YOU LIBERAL DEMOCRAT! Arrested in your own neighborhood-you will be be judged by God-not by any of us. Your facts are so late. Mr. Kony has not resided in Uganda for over 3 years. "The desire of money, is the root of all evil." Check your scriptures, wolve!
