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.

Wonderful that you put up the video along with other tabloid sites. Kony is as evil as ever and we should all get the action pack and try to help. Thanks.

you guys know that this invisible children stuff is mostly BS where they dont donate most of the money, and it goes into pockets of those that dont need it, they only donte about 32% to the Uganda and such people the rest they get paid a nice salary, donate to a real charity thats more non profit and actually helps like the Red Cross or other true non profit ORG's i would not give my money to these scam artists sorry!!!!!

Invisible Children Inc., seeded this video. The short of it: They don’t allow their financials to be audited, they’re rated poorly by some major charity watchdog groups, only 31% of their money goes to helping people according to one financial statement they did release. And Kony himself hasn’t been seen or active in any guerrilla organizations since 2006 UPDATE: Or 2008, depending on the source. There are conflicting reports on this due to the lack of media in the region. But he was last seen and photographed as a powerless peasant. He has no power. Do your own research, doubt and question everything. Be a free thinker.

it's a shame she doesn't care as much about herself as she does other children. RiRi, get away from Chris and get some therapy, silly child.

I like how he uses his son to soften american hearts as if the message wasn't loud enough. If this is really going on the why doesn't God Almighty sitting in The White House do anything about it. I mean really, this is a re-election year and all. Maybe the kids are invisible because they don't exist. This thing reeks of a scam and aimed at the children to help spread the message just like the guy in the video. We have enough problems going on in our own Country, let them fight their own wars. Lord knows we DON'T need another one.
