Jason Russell


Caught on Tape

3/17/2012 10:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jason Russell Video: The Naked Meltdown
TMZ has footage of "Kony 2012" honcho Jason Russell in the midst of his naked meltdown in San Diego ... pounding his fists in anger and screaming maniacally. [UPDATE: TMZ has obtained a close-up video from Russell's meltdown. CLICK HERE to see.]

As we previously reported, Russell was detained by police yesterday ... after witnesses say he was running around naked and making sexual gestures.

Russell was held on a 5150 psychiatric hold ... so authorities can decide if he poses a danger to himself or others.

A rep for Invisible Children says Russell was suffering from exhaustion, dehydration, and malnutrition as a result of a strenuous PR campaign.

It's sad that Herman Cain had to resign on rumors, and this clown gets sympathetic coverage. Could you imagine if this was James O'keefe from Brietbart how rabid the coverage would be? I guess it's ok for non profit scammers to steal as long as they are liberal.

Has nobody any decency anymore? This man is ILL. He is not capable of protecting his modesty or dignity. What the hell is wrong with everyone filming this, and then putting it online? This is a personal tragedy for him, not sick entertainment for everyone. Shame on you. We arrest people filming folks with hidden cameras for amusement, just precisely because the person being filmed doesn't know, and can't protect their privacy, and we can all imagine it being done to us, and we wouldn't like it. Mental illness removed this man's ability to protect his dignity and privacy, and filming it and broadcasting it is the act of a disgusting and repulsive group of people. No better, and arguably worse than the most sneaky voyeur. At least they run the risk of getting caught and getting the crap beaten out of them.

Would you want someone to do this to you or someone you love, if they had a mental breakdown?

Our society has lost any sense of propriety, decency, or compassion.

What Led To Kony Creator's Naked Breakdown On a San Diego Sidewalk?

Hitting over 70 million viewers in just its first week the Kony 2012 Youtube video is now considered to be the most viral video in history. Because of this video the African warlord Joseph Kony is now known by the majority, and the hope is that Kony will be found and brought to justice. Having the most viral video in history was no small feat for co-creator Jason Russell, or anybody for that matter. Having the amazing vision to do something extraordinary requires a brilliant mind. I think that most people would agree that Jason Russell was a creative visionary who has already made a footprint on society.
