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.

Kony, you're done now that Rihanna is on the case. Many of the world will listen and support whatever she has to say and what she has going on. Crimes against your own people is bad karma.

All you gullible morons. All of a sudden people want you to care about Africa (Uganda to be more specific) This has been going on for 26 years. Must be a coincidence they just recently found oil fields in Uganda...

Say It Isn't So    

Robyn Fenty is so freaking skanky, I wouldn't want anything to do w/something she put her hands on. What a skank wh*re. All of a sudden she wants to help kids in Africa, when this has been going on since before the skank was born. What a joke.

This country, as well as goofy Rihanna, has plenty of its own problems. We can't save the world. And Rihanna can't even stop moaning over her thug ex. She's not the person for this. I don't care about Rihanna, but America, stay out of it!!

Had to Vent    

people can be so cruel. i cant imagine how hard it must get being a public figure. whether u're a fan or not, her reaching out is a good thing. she was obviously moved by what she saw, like most of were, and is using her platform to help the cause. Inserting Chris Browns name or calling her dirty words are uncalled for, where this post is concerned....BE ABOUT SOMETHING AND NOT JUST ABOUT TEARING PPL DOWN. All u negative nancies are, are nothing but a bunch of cyber bullies, who are probably unhappy with your lives, so u feel the need to forever criticize ppl u dont know. Ugghh ( i've never commented on here b4, but i just had to get it out my system) KONY2012 & shout out to all the charities bringing awareness to mistreated children

Umm, all this "exposure" of Kony is nice and all, but he left Uganda like 6 years ago or something. The film is really misleading. Of course he should be brought to justice, but he is no longer leading a child army in Uganda, so there's no reason for anyone to be trying to "oust" him. That's just ridiculous--how do you oust someone who ran away 6 years ago?
